I'm retired now and would like to get into walking daily. I have chemo-related peripheral neuropathy, which makes being on my feet any extended time very painful. Prescription drugs don't help. OTC remedies, supplements, and creams do not work. I'd love a day at a spa!

It's important for you to be connected to a caregiver network for encouragement and support. These caregivers understand what you are going through! I'm sure AARP has a link for you to join a caregiver group. I am somewhat of a caregiver to my mother who suffers from COPD and beginning Alzheimer's. I know it can be tough and we can use all the support we can get! I hope you have someone to relieve your duties occasionally so you can get out and enjoy yourself and relax for awhile. No one really understands the physical and mental stress it takes to be a caregiver if they aren't one. Best of luck and God Bless!

I would like to breath deeper at work and not hold my breath as often while being anxious about all the things I would like to get done at work that day.

I don't take time off from my two jobs and being the caregiver for my 89-year-old Mom.

I know that is not good for me. I have to figure out how to do that!

A habit I'd like to take up again is making green smoothies for breakfast. I have to wait until I complete my LAST chemo treatment next week, as a side effect is a sensitivity to eating or touching anything cold. After that, I'm back on the good stuff!

I would like to get back to exercising on a regular basis.  It is tough to do because I have arthritis.

I'm alone, in poor health including 24/7 pain. I do not have a car and feel land-locked because I cannot even leave my block, let alone get out of town. I've been through so much loss this last 2 years and could really use something to look forward to as well as a time of refreshment for my soul. I'm only 61 years old but my health makes me feel so much older. My mother looks younger than I do! My sister is also in the same approximate arrangement as myself. We have the same disease...but she has a car. Thankfully she drives all this way occasionally to take me to the doctors and other short errands.

 

I am being dragged down by health and poverty. It would be wonderful to feel special again. Its been a long time since my daughter moved out of state with my grandchildren. I used to have all the hugs I could handle. Now its been close to 2 years.

 

Blessings to all women who have applied for this giveaway.
