    Thank you Charlene for this timely article on guilty feelings. I can certainly relate to this as I get so frustrated at times at not being able to do simple things that I used to be able to and at having to lie down often to recover from being out to the Dr., etc. While I know it is not something my husband minds doing, I feel badly at the amount of time I now need him to help me. He rarely, if ever, complains and is willing to help with laundry, changing the bed, sweeping the floors (I now have a cleaning lady doing floors) even dusting my very dirty collection of Red Hat items. Our son tries to come out to visit more frequently and I so appreciate that. I used to drive in to visit them and pet and house sat for them…not able to do that now. I feel guilty as well as angry that I am unable to do things. One day at a time works well now. Thanks for your valuable messages.
