Taking time

I have learned pacing yourself is the best help. I don't clean the whole house anymore. I have to pick one room and go until I get tired. My house is a mess. I have learned to let it go. The stress isn't good for me. Sometimes it's hard because I have never lived in such a mess. I still clean little bit by little bit.

Having dogs has helped also. I have to get up to let them out and feed them. They give me love without expecting much in return.

Going shopping is different, so I try to make lists or I don't remember everything. That is a big problem I don't like.

Despite all this I still feel blessed. I can get up in the morning and walk. I can see. I can help others.
