Today I went downtown. I found a parking place and walked to the shop I needed. That sounds mundane and it is. I am overjoyed to want to do something mundane and to actually do it. I didn't feel sick. I wasn't limited by fatigue or pain. I didn't use a cane. And I wanted to do something to improve a little piece of my life. 

This is such a change in attitude--an opening, a diminishment of a low-level depression. I have felt so limited physically and so lacking in hope. These last weeks and months I have received such support and involvement from so many folks. It really destroys my sense of solitude. 

I had reached a point where I couldn't help myself any more. Others appeared and truly have helped. I feel better than I have in years. I have hope I will continue to feel better and stronger.
