Asking For Help

Since the theme for Invisible Illness Awareness Week is "A little help gives a lot of hope", 

I thought I would write about how I never ask for help. 

I've always been so self-sufficient all my life. My motto has always been "If you want something done, do it yourself". I obviously have a difficult time asking for help.

I decided to ask my daughter to come help me sort out the tons of boxes, clothes and bags I put in our living room. I think a month of sitting there and not asking for help is long enough!  It was on such a day when I was feeling so good to go through the boys closet, the hall closet and our front closet to get rid of stuff. Well, not exactly rid of it, but put the stuff in boxes, bags and piles in the middle of my living room!  Remember, I've been sick for sometime, so this was really over due. 

It seems since living with a Chronic Illness I've become a procrastinator! 

Well, I am very much relieved to know that My wonderful daughter has agreed to come help. 

Wow this feels great!


  1. I am very proud of you. Now be careful and don't overdo it in the garden!

  2. Thank you Chele!
    I promise, I will try not to : ]
