Organizing With Chronic Illness?
It has been many years since I was on here, and just about forgot I use to be a member. I am so glad to be here again, and could use help. I have been retired for 2 years now since dealing with Lupus,Sjogren's,Fibromyalgia,and other issues. While going through the past years of finding out what was wrong with me, having to give up my career, and the death of my mother, my house is a disaster. Overall it's not to the stage of hoarders yet. hehe...One room may qualify. hehe..Actually, I am not a hoarder, because I could easily throw out anything in my way, and not give it a second thought. My precious husband is one who has a very difficult time throwing things out. He is attempting to work on it though. My husband is disabled and on oxygen daily. The problem I do have is I have no energy with the increased levels of inflammation with my lupus,and other issues. Example: If I go with my dad to the doctor, then I am done in for the day. I have to lay down a lot to restore a bit of energy. I worked this past spring for days making me a small beginning perennial garden. I had been making some progress in my house until March of this year when my mother died. The stress of course only brings me down further, but I am working on it, that is why I am here. I have to do things in my house as easily as possible, and in short increments. I can use any help any of you give me, and would be so very thankful. I want to be able to have family visit. Right now I am ashamed to. I didn't mean to be so long, but felt I need to fill in with some info on first post.
