DMIO: A Day In My Life
This is the hardest post of the DMIO series for me. I've considered not doing it but I don't want to quit. My life is hard sometimes, but I like to keep remembering that compared to so many others it is perfectly fine and liveable.
I sleep for 12 hours a night, and perhaps 2-4 hours in the afternoon.
I have very limited energy levels - I don't shower, I don't dress myself, I don't make my meals, I spend 95% of my waking time sitting still. (I have the best carer! She is a star.)
I craft for sanity, taking regular breaks. I love this about crafting - most crafts can be done even two minutes worth at a time. Also I don't have to think much about crafting, it comes naturally to me. Reading, writing, typing take a lot more energy, concentration and focus so on bad days I stay away from these.
But I have a roof over my head. I have wonderful family. I have the ability to craft a little on most days. Yes, I have pain, but the over all picture could be a lot worse, and I feel blessed to have what I have.
This Do More In October post is a series run by Fab. You can see all my posts by clicking 'Do More In October' but for lots of other bloggers head over to Fab's blog for the link-up.
