It’s starting to get real.  

In the very recent past I would have difficulty doing challenging sporting type things and would be very sad about it at the time. But then I would get back to more ordinary life and immediately forget about the sadness.  Now, that difficulty is with me in everyday life.  Just walking into church with my wife, or going grocery shopping is on the hovering edge of ability.  So far, the strategies that I have talked about are still working, but I wonder if I will soon need to find a new strategy.    We’ll see.
