Assistance, Please

Open, close or lift. Easy to do, right? Not so, when you are experiencing a flare-up, or have collateral damage from previous flare-ups.

Reaching for a glass out of the cupboard, bringing in a bag of groceries or getting the laundry out of the washer require Superman-like amounts of effort.

It’s helpful to plan ahead and prioritize a list of the things that need doing. When someone is around, consider asking them for some assistance.

I understand that it’s not always easy to do this. I also understand that friends and family are usually willing to lend a hand.
