Morning Family. Hope we are all happy and healthy.
 
so often we focus on our own misery and illness that we can forget to help people in our lives-
 
Todays question:
 
"What can I do to help someone else today?"
 
 
 
 
 
its only simple, but today i will help my dad (who has a back injury) change the tyres on his car as it is due for inspection. I will pull my weight with household chores, as i often get lazy. thats it for me right now...

Great question Maz.

I can study up on Children with asthma so I am more current in the latest meds and treatments.

Diabetes too is one I need to do a refresher.

For me, I can give myself a HUG.

Thanks

Hugs

just breath said...

That kinda thing is easy to do when you live with anxiety bc it seems like with health anxiety, everything else takes a back seat. Thats including relationships.

Nikki

Nikki, its so true, i think with ANY form of anxiety, everything else in life takes a backseat, and i know i have let it affect relationships without even realising the damage i was doing-
love you bunches,

I do volunteer work for my daughter's school. I'm the secretary for the school's PTA. We do fundraisers, etc. Plus I try to help anyone I see that needs it on a daily basis. I know I could do more. I'll think about that.

I've been doing alot of cooking, baking, etc. for my in-laws.  My father in law has cancer and is going through chemo, and since I can't always physically be there to help, the least I can do is cook for them.  He's a chocolate chip cookie fanatic, so I've been making several dozen of those a week.  He's also on a jello kick, so I'm making that for him too.  It feels good to help out in such a helpless feeling time.

I will get my neighbor the information he needs to contact Legal Aid. It's not much, but reminds me that as bad as things are, at least I still have access to the internet. smilewinkgrin

I always help family, friends and neighbors when needed if it is within my ability. . . volunteer work when asked usually. . . Today though I am going to give my grandmother a spa treatment with a manicure, pedicure, hair trim, tweezed, mask, whirlpool foot massager. . . lol :) She will be feeling good today because she was aching so much yesterday from her arthritis that we did extra light PT for a longer time than usual.
Take care and have a wonderful day! . . . Your Bro . . . Sam :)

I am getting things together this week to donate to a charitable organization to help people out who are in need. Tonight I am going to wash a big load of clothing to donate. Tough times abound and those organizations are helping lots of people in this area.

You are a winner no matter what you do.  I cannot imagine your co workers not loving you.
