All of you have given such excellent advice! I, too, felt really down/despondent when I first got sick, saying ‘this is not what I planned for myself.’ But, I’m slowly getting back to myself and doing what I want and can do. I really like the suggestion of adult centers! I used to volunteer at the one in town. Several of the people got rides in and others drove or walked. There were art classes, lectures, hot lunch, and good company. Try it! You might also see what classes, talks, etc. your local hospital has. Ours frequently has talks on a fib, and osteoporosis. Take care and just keep moving!
