Oh my sore2long, sounds just like me. I get up at 5:30 am everyone, (I set my alarm) take my morning meds and lay back down for at least 1 hour. By the time I get up at around 6:30-7:30, my meds have started to work and I am ready to the day.
Now of course things happen some days that throw me off my schedule but for the most part, thats how I start my days.
It has taken me until the age of 58 to realize I need order in my life, my very best friend in life has always been a list maker, I have definetly taken a page from her organizational skills and made them my own. We each have our own way of getting things done, but I find with some order in my life it is so much easier to get the things done I need to do.
One big reason is I have short term memory loss, and I can tell you that is no joke, some mornings I can barely remember my own name. Ok I may we exaggerating, but it is a terrible thing, losing or not remembering things you have done your whole life. It is actually very terrifying at times. But one hurdle after another, it takes time, but time is one thing I have a lot of. So on I march, taking in one thing at a time.
I am so sorry, here I am once again babbling on and on, my children tell me that going on and on like I do is embarrassing to them, but what am I to, thats who I am.
Well here is hoping you will feel better very soon, and remember, whatever you dont do, it will be there in the morning.
