How happy I am to be still able to work in my garden, to iron myself (yes, really!), to take something from the floor when it's fallen and more things like that. A friend of mine, she's in the same age as me, suffers from painful joints since a few weeks and it's really bad. It starts to determine her day to day life and she needs help with that. I already go there two to three times a week to help her, because she's alone and cannot cope by herself. She can do most things, but it takes a lot of energy from her and therefore she postpones other things that have to be done.
