Unpleasant Life Task
As an old hand at writing, I know that I must clear time to prepare the many filings required for the next phase of my late father’s nursing home neglect lawsuit. I know how to do this but for the first time in my life I have diminished initiative, and I find it hard to continue this unpleasant life task. Age is such a handicap. I am about a year shy of age seventy and it takes me a long time to do the ordinary things of life like meals, laundry, etc. I need daytime naps without which my mind goes muzzy and my body aches unbearably. This week I have two doctor appointments with testings which are stressful and not helpful. I cannot think of anything I would rather do less than write for this ghastly lawsuit, but I have no choice, this is a life task I cannot shirk. I write out of grief for the injury caused to my late father. For the sake of justice I am yet again at my computer screen.
