    Re: Sorry

    Have you considered assisted living facilities? You can have some independence but they give you assistance where needed. Also have others in your situation that need social connections. Check out several places to see what they offer

      My dear Sandy. I started this quest to find out what was wrong that we weren't hearing from you. I don't know, maybe you are reading the post but just don't feel up to posting. I know I'm like that. I feel like so many people are my friends here on the forum and love to read about what they are doing but I'm just insecure enough that I don't often post. I want to thank you for posting and letting us know you are still around. You don't have to be working on a quilt to post. You are one of us. I have been having mobility problems for over 10 years but I can still drive. It is after I get to my destination that I have problems. I can only walk a handful of steps before my back is in spasms. At home I use a walker, but it is 'backbreaking' to take it in a vehicle. Hard to load and unload. So when I do go it is usually to go to my LQS in small town, and friends are understanding and help me. It is hard to ask for help. I also know that being around others helps feed our soul. Please find some help and even think about assisted living. The one in my home town has so many activities that even people that aren't living in the center participate in. They have a quilting group that has bunchs of fun. It is tied in with the senior center for meals and I go and visit with friends at least once a month to eat and share. So many of your friends on the forum have given you some excellent ideas.
      Please let us know which ones you are trying first. Keep us updated.

        Sandy, I have been thru the same thing as you are experiencing right now. I was 48 when I had my accident that changed my whole life. Please know that there is a way to get help.. I found a neighbor, a church service and a free senior citizen service. I just had to get over my stubborn independent self and start asking.

        It is hard... so very hard. But you can do this. Just keep saying (everyday) I can DO THIS..

          On a lighter note, you could be like the people here in Kansas. When they can't drive their cars, they drive their riding lawnmowers. There are days you can't find a parking spot for your car around the square because of all the lawnmowers. We are nothing if not adaptive.

            Sandy, my heart goes out to you. You have been through a lot and are going through a lot still. Remember that you are stronger than you know. And you are loved. I haven't read what everyone here has written but it is easy to tell that many, many people here care deeply about you. I was going to suggest what JCY has already suggested to you. Grammaterry has good suggestions too. Please let you're family know what is happening. If a loved one was going through this I would want to know. I will keep you in my prayers. Hugs.
