With my ongoing health problems and worsening fatigue and weakness I find myself in the position of needing help with my everyday things like cooking, laundry, cleaning and driving. This is not only disappointing to me but very frustrating to my feeling of independence.

On Monday I’ll be visiting a Nephrologist, as you can read about in my blog post on Brain Foggles about needing to see another specialist. I see this as a step in the right direction so that hopefully a reason can be learned for the Hypokalemia. But in the mean time I have been coping with this major change in my regular life.

Knowing that I can’t do the simple things without getting tired out, like getting a load of laundry out the dryer, cleaningbar faucets, driving a few blocks or going shopping is very disappointing. I’m doing my best to work on being positive and keeping focused on getting better.

  1. I’m sorry that things are hard for you right now, Connie!

    I do know what you are describing when you talk about your fatigue. Keeping a positive outlook is really important for you during this time, which is easier said than done.

    I hope that you can get some help from the nephrologist and feel better soon!
