As I have been cutting back in my life, I have run into some misunderstandings. There are people who think that I am not doing as many things in my life due to the fact that I don't want to. But the reality is that I cant do everything I used to do.
I used to go for a daily walk. Yesterday I went for a walk because it

I was at a meeting recently and someone said something about me not wanting to do everything I used to do for the group. They were wrong, I really can't. I think they look at me and think I look the same as I did six months ago but I am not.
Looks can be deceiving. Just because I do not look different, doesn't mean I don't feel differently. I am on more medications, in more pain, have less energy, and have much more difficulty in getting around. I am not a slacker but I just can't do everything I used to.
