Yes, another task I can point and grunt. He's going to pull the hampers out and dump them so I cam sort through the clothes. Then he will haul them out to the car and into the laundromat. There I can just tell him what goes into which machine, add soap, etc and put the quarters in. Then resort for drying. Fold and back home, unless I can talk him into lunch out.

He really is being quite helpful and not too overbearing.

You are doing all your laundry at a Laundromat?

I would insist on lunch out!

I am getting ready for a meeting as part of research for my talk on depression. Just want to make sure what I am talking about is relevant to what they are looking for.

I am really taking this responsibility seriously. It could impact the lives of others either living with this horrid illness and/or their loved ones.

Oh, just found out my silly mutt likes beets! A piece dropped on the floor and she grabbed it. I figured she wouldn't touch it but she wolfed it down and looked up for more (which she didn't get!).

I'm having a bad pain day, so it may not happen anyway. I've also been sleeping so much I'm getting sore spots on my shoulders and hips.

Oh dear. Those days are going to happen for a short while. You have your staples out and now the real healing begins. Try sleeping on your side with a pillow at your back so you don't roll back.

You know the routine. You have had a major invasive surgery and it is not going to heal overnight. In spite of what you want. I have been there so many times that I have lost count. Which one was the worst? The one on my spine.

I had a very deep abscess that never came to a head and ripened. It became a hard tumor that developed tentacles that were wrapping around my spine. Just taking a breath after the surgery was enough to make me want to die. I did a lot of crying and couldn't wait until the next pain med came my way. But I made it. Sleep was my best friend. Today I have a very large hole in the middle of my back. And no pain. But for years my kids thought it was a bullet hole from where the police shot me when I got caught in the crossfire.

I got sick of everyone asking me what the hole was from. So I made up the story about the police. My kids sat wide eyed. It wasn't until they became adults that I told them the truth. They were so disappointed.

The first time I did laundry after moving out on my own I learned not to put blue jeans and underwear together.
