Hardly ever over the door !

Hardly ever over the door with this illness and if I do go out even a few hours is enough .

In my previous posts I talked a bit about the shopping side and feeling overwhelmed.

Also another reason would be the crushing fatigue.

Getting hair done make up even feels Luke a chore and this is no joke !

Do you find yourself home a lot or are you still a social
Person ?

@reddivine is fond of quoting to me. You need military planning, to fit things in when you DO have the energy.

How much help do you need/get at the moment?

Of course socialising is vital to health, and sanity I think even if its just going to see a movie or meeting a mate for a coffee.

@angelbum , there is an inclination to stay indoors as that is a safe, comfortable and secure option. But, your social life will suffer as a result.

It really is all about management, so that you can do things when you are able and avoid things when you aren’t.

We do have to make an effort to get out there from time to time, just to prove that we’re still part of the human race. 😉

I’d say yes and yes…….
I’m a social person even if the only ppl i see that day are my carer (45 mins in the morn) and my son (who works all day)
Ken Bruce R2 get talked at a lot…
If i don’t go out AT ALL, I do go “stir crazy”….
Going to church, a belly dancing class, swimming all makes me engage with other folks.
It doesn’t have to be far or for long..
