I used to be a very active person; now I am fortunate just to make it thru the day!
Sometimes i feel really good; then I over do it! Then I am unable to do anything for several days.
I go from cane to wheel chair to bed! It Sucks at times.
My Afghan Hounds and Classic Cars keep me going. I also have a wonderful family who took me in when things got really bad for me.
I do my best to keep my independence. I have adopted my Nephew this September 2012, and that is a challenge for me because he has Autism. We used to get support for him in school, but with all of the budget cuts they have drastically cut his T.S.S. workers hours. So things have become increasingly difficult for me with all of the stress.
I have good days and bad days, I guess that I just have to learn to take one day at a time.
