Mumbles … Prioritize

So much to do and no where near enough hours in a day to get it all done… especially now that I am helping out my Dad so much. Things have been hectic lately. Not only do I have all my regular doctor’s appointments (for my depression, anxiety and fibromyalgia) but I have Dad’s myriad of doctor’s (heart, lungs, diabetes, PC) appointment to get him too. Add then the errands for my household and his and my limited amount of energy in a day (thanks so much fibro) … I really need to prioritize better.

My brain is doing triple time just trying to keep track of meds for Dad, my boyfriend and myself… I never fill the pill caddies on the same days. Last time we counted Dad is taking well over 25 different medications, vitamins and minerals! You would thing they would WORK … but then again maybe they do but the side effects negate the assistance they give. At least that is what I find with some of my meds.

I just try to remember that saying, “one day at a time” and adapt it to hours or minutes as is needed. Some days are just a little crazier than others and today has been that kind of a day. I hope to post this soon, but first I must read a little more to catch up. Maybe this weekend when we are free of appointments I can get a little more done… but I wont hold my breath- it makes me turn an ugly shade of purple!
