Nicole @SpringIsHereSoHappy,

Roof replacement. You have to appease the insurance companies here or they will drop the hammer on you. My roof is pushing their limits and getting some grant money makes the time right to do it.

Yesterday, 11/25 would have been the 62 year anniversary of my marriage.  Funny, in my mind I am still married to my husband and will remain so until the day I die.  I went to the graves and put beautiful flowers on both my husband and son's graves.  It was a sunny, beautiful day.  My son's home closes 11/30 and he and a friend will take a truck up to unload some things.  (Hopefully all the "stuff" he has in my house and garage.)  🤣  Hopefully I will be able to put the house on the market in January.  My cataract/glaucoma surgery is 1/9.  I still have a long way to go, but as you say Nicole:  "One Step at a Time".

Hi, Cadee, my heart goes out to you.  I agree that if you are married for a long time, like I am too, I will still feel my late husband's presence and miss him every day.  I am glad you had a sunny day to put down your flowers and remember your husband and son.  Two losses are extra hard.  Good luck on your cataract surgery.  Take care of yourself and as we all are experiencing take it slow.  My prayers are with you.  If you can, please try to take some time to be with the rest of your family during this holiday season.  Many churches offer Blue Christmas services on December 21, the longest night of the year, so I have found those services very comforting.  Just a thought.  Love, Sue 💕

I have designated reading and prayer time each evening. It helps me to relax and get my mind set on a positive track. I find this routine to be beneficial for me to sleep.

When a family member/friend dies it affects more people than you think. Parents if they're still alive, same for siblings. Spouses, adult or younger kids, neighbors. The postman. The maintenance man, and on it goes. It's like a ripple in a pond. The one you lost had a part in all these people's lives. And it helps to remember the good ways your loved one touched lives, even if it was a brief moment or two.

Everything is a challenge for me right now. I have fallen 7 times in 7 days. I fell twice on 2 days and I am pretty sure that I have done something else to my back. I have multiple bruises, ripped the skin off my left leg. It almost looks like a rug burn but I don't have carpet. Thanksgiving was 10 months since my husband died. I know that my adult daughter has her own life and a lot on her plate but, sometimes Mom's need help but with her it's either too busy or something else. She dropped off something to me yesterday and immediately said she couldn't stay because she had to clean up from Thanksgiving which she hosted for the families. I had to pick it up and then drag it to the other room where it's still sitting because I can't carry it upstairs. I couldn't even get up the stairs to use the bathroom. I had to use a bucket. I feel like my life is spiralling out of control and I don't know what to do to stop it. Here's our beautiful boy.

Falling frequently, of course, is not great.  Really, you should be checked out by a health professional.  Falling can cause hidden injuries, like some whiplash from the force of the fall.

I see a pain management doctor and have reported this many times to them. I don't want something to affect my hardware because I am not having another back surgery. I am calling the surgeon tomorrow morning if I don't end up in the emergency room. I have discs pressing on my nerve root on both sides of my lower back and I don't want them to herniate. My daughter is a teacher and my mom is having memory loss so, I have limited resources to help my handicap son. I don't know which way to get the help I need and I am not sure what is coming next. I feel totally helpless. I can't even stand up long enough to even shower.

That sounds so painful Kimberly. Back pain is awful. I'm sorry you're going through so much. Maybe the people on this site can lend wisdom and hope.

HUMOR is therapeutic... Humor helps reduce the negative effects of feeling unhealthy, out of control, afraid, or helpless....If you don’t consider yourself a funny person, then its suggested to consider being a humor curator. Collect and share things that make you laugh😊

Happy Thanksgiving!Happy Thanksgiving!

 Thanks My 4evah friend!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Take care!  🍂🍁🍂☮️  ~Allen 🌈🍂🍁🍂
