In answer to the daily prompt “Take Care” about being taken care of, i have to begin with the statement, it depend’s. For the past twelve years or so of my life i have lived in chronic pain. Pain from three types of athritis,as well as nerve pain throughout my back and body. Some days it’s worse than others. Thus the” it depends “statement. If i need help opening something, closing something, picking up something and or carrying something, it’s most everyday. I try to do all I can for myself though. Lately, i have been trying mind contol over my pain and weakness. I have been walking more and doing more exercise. Sometimes i hurt more because of it, but i want to believe it’s helping. I want to believe i can and will get better. The more i ask for help, the more weak i will become. I want to be able to continue to walk on my own. I am not complaining as much as i used to, i don’t like worrying those who love me. It really doesn’t help anyhow.
