I so agree Koffee but ever since I retired about 20 years ago I've wondered how I ever managed to work full time, have super active kids, and sort of keep house or do laundry. Today I took dad to his whirlpool bath and then talked to them ab... Read more

Thanks to so many of my Spark friends to was a little easier than it could have been. I should have made myself leave the house and not be alone with my own thoughts. But I stay home and did nothing except feed myself. I've felt relief ... Read more
