Since Carol sensitized me to my memory issues, I asked her to start paying my bills, and keep track of things like tax documents I don’t want to lose. I am lucky to have a partner I trust who is willing to do that.
Also, another friend Nancy has started having a standing date to go to the gym with me. She responded to my wish list on the web site Alice set up. I thought the web site would let me know when I had a message. It didn’t, but Alice noticed and passed it along. The combination of the formal and informal process worked.
The present moment is surprisingly sunny.
