I am 89 and I have a few physical problems. Besides which, I recognize that my memory isn't what it once was so taking care of husband's needs, of which there are more than mine, is really stressful. Those in my church don't seem to realize this and keep requesting that I help out when I am really tired much of the day. Our children live out of state, but try do what they can. We don't have the finances to afford help and so far I have been able to handle the laundry, shopping, meals and cleaning, but I do wish I could make my friends understand that I have all I can handle at present.
