With all of this we care for my BIL, Robert who has Epilepsy who has his own facilities (7, 8) which even will all my stuff we need to care for him and his also. Those of us dealing with chronic pain can’t really stop and not take care of all the other things going on in our lives. One day, One step, One task at a time and if all we can do is one task a day then that’s all we can do. Keep moving……
