I love your kitten avatar. Is that your kitten? I have two cats and they pull me through the days. A routine is very helpful is keeping us going isn't it.

I'm sorry you have been through so many sad things. Are there also some good memories?

Life is hard but it gets easier as time goes on. The clock keeps ticking, days on the calender get ticked off and before you know it it is Christmas (again) and your birthday (again). It goes so fast!

Is life stressful at the moment? I find i can cope with life, as long as nothing major goes wrong. I need to keep everything organised, avoid stress, keep in control, and also have lots and lots of rest. Walking in the forest, to the shop, it blows the cobwebs away. Nature is healing and comforting isn't it. Water too.

Be very kind to yourself
Be very gentle with yourself
Have sympathy for yourself and congratulate yourself for getting through the days despite everything you have had to deal with.

That's so sweet.

I'm ok thanks. I just had a bath with lavender oil and my kitten sat on the edge watching. :)

From watching relatives, you might be tired and feel sick but they give you tablets to help with side effects now so it isn't as gruelling as it was many years ago. Still hard going though.

They have massage chairs here and people often sleep through it.

Do you have help with your daughter and chores?
