Artblue...I think you are doing all the right things and pushing yourself. Also, Karen suggests some things that are helpful. I forced myself to join an over 50's womans group this forces me to have to be somewhere at least once a week. At first it was hard to get myself motivated but, really once I go I forget about
my other problems for a few hours at least. I think you are on the right track.
I am sorry I did not realize you are a new member so I would like to welcome you, I think you will be happy you signed up. The members here have been very thoughtful and uplifting.
Take care, Amy
