Well enough to get well enough
I think I’ve finally gotten well enough to keep getting well. The trick is to avoid backsliding. I’m at the point where I’ve been able to get out of the house. That’s been great, but it’s also been exhausting. Months of limited activity have taken its toll. However, I’m better than I’ve been in about seven or eight months.
The plan is to get back in condition over the spring and summer. My health will determine exactly what kind of fall and winter I’m going to be up for. Barring any major setbacks, I should be ready for just about anything.
Currently my lovely wife and I are still getting help with house projects. My lovely wife has been dealing with fibromyalgia for years. She does better than many people with this condition, but there are days she must rest.
That’s was part of the reason we went from doing long canoe trips to traveling in a sailboat. On a canoe trip, she just could not get the rest she needed. Traveling on a sailboat she can always go inside and rest if needed. That’s worked out fairly well. As long as we stick to sailboats that can be handled by a single person we’ll be fine.
My lovely wife has been taking care of me since I came back home. Thank goodness that I’ve been able to contribute more to the chores lately. I’m blessed that family and friends are still helping. Recently my son-in-law changed out a cracked toilet for us. My family has helped with house projects. You’ve no idea how hard it’s been to sit in my recliner while other people do the work. Getting well is my main job right now, so that’s how it has to be.
I live in an area of NH known as the Great North Woods. I'm in my dome-i-cile out in the county with my lovely wife and a varying number of family and friends
-part red neck, part hippie but all country. Experimenting and enjoying the adventure of life.
