That “pond” gets bigger and bigger when you have to swim across, so I do have something to start with here. I remember Allaugs thread when I was making that swim.
A friend on this forum, who lives in my area, has offered to help me with transportation, so I can get out more often. Transportation became a much bigger problem because my savings is now gone and I must live on a tight budget, which means I have to cut down on how often my home care agency takes me out.
Miracles do happen, thank you friend! I will call you.
