In the sun.

Feeling sorry for myself again - had a really bad night and then today we were due to go shopping.

I was pretty much out of it all morning - had a sandwich and a wash, took a pill and then went to Tesco's. The end result was that instead of doing this in the morning, we went in the afternoon when its busy.

Robyn drove and I shuffled along like a snail. At the store I went round on a disabled buggy and then back at home I just slumped back down in my chair, worn out. I actually did nothing.

I'm no longer any use to Robyn or anyone else - I used to do everything, I was the one who looked after everybody. It's difficult to adjust.

As I came out of the house, I was covered by a warm, sultry October sunshine. Waiting in the checkout queue I just basked in the sun, letting it flow over my eyelids.

Just enough to remind me what we missed out on this summer.

  1. It takes time to adjust to not taking care of everyone but trust me you are of great use to Robyn and all of us. Love you!
