  • Hi Tinkerbell, are you mischievous? I bet you are for choosing such a name. So so sorry about your husband. They say that you have to be tough to grow old and how right that is. Take each day as it comes Tinkerbell that's all anyone can do. The people on here are great and they also give lots of support and, when reading their articles, lots of laughs as well.

    Which reminds me, I constantly lose my glasses and have to purchase new ones. Today I defrosted some apples and low and behold out came pair of reading glasses that I mistakenly dropped in the chest freezer - opps🤓

  • I love ur positive attitude past me best and u always answer every post

  • Hi @reiver, sorry for the delay in answering you. I have been very busy lately.

    Having a positive attitude really makes a difference in how you handle any illness. Thinking about the negatives all the time will only drag you into the depths of depression.

    I can still do most of what I want to, just a bit slower.

    I hope you are keeping well.

  • Hallo Tinkerbell. Sorry to hear about all your problems, and particularly sorry to hear that your husband died last year. I am a widow of nearly nine years now, so I know how difficult it can be living on your own when you don't feel well. Keep going, love, and take each day as it comes. I hope you will soon feel better.
