    Tortoise days

    I sometimes wish I was tortoise. Then when the world becomes too much for me I could just retreat into my shell. Oh, wait, I do that already just without a physical shell. πŸ˜‰πŸ˜πŸ€—πŸ˜xx

      I know the feeling Mathew but I can disappear into myself within a shell but very seldom x
      ALS diagnosed November 2017, limb onset. For the 4 yrs previously I was losing my balance.

      I'm staying positive and taking each day as it comes.

        I think we all retreat into our 'shells' from time to time...a bit of self care....then ready to face the day.

        Years ago I had a tortoise we called him 'meat pie' πŸ˜„

          Meat pie 🀣 I had a little dog a westie crossed with a yorkie, not the chocolate version, I called her Elsie pie. When she was a puppy I used to call her Or Else. Come here or else. Didn't make any difference still ignored me. 🀭

            And another benefit of being a 🐒 is that if you were to fall, the floor is only 4cm away - just don't go over on your back 😏

                I went to the supermarket the other day, first time in months. It was so noisy! people chatting, trollies whizzing past, registers pinging, I became overwhelmed and wanted to leave, but I couldn't attract hubby's attention as my voice is so soft. I hadn't realized how soft until I was in that environment. So used to the quiet at home. Big disappointment!
