Unless you have been living under a rock for the last few years, I am sure you have heard the term DIY being applied to all kinds of things. You can find projects ranging from home improvement to gardening to healthcare. Many times ordinary objects are repurposed to solve a problem or fulfill a need. I figured out pretty quickly that my health created a lot of problems for me to solve. As I looked for solutions, I realized that many times it would be simply too difficult for me to attempt. I mean really, when you have chronic fatigue, who wants to spend all day sanding a floor? I began to realize there were many projects that I could do and many that I could do with a few modifications. I also found it is deeply satisfying to create a solution for a problem that I have personally struggled with. It makes me proud to say: I made that, I did that, I created that. I don’t know about you but when I am dealing with chronic issues all of the time, it is very nice to take a short break and focus on something constructive.
What Kind Of Projects Are We Talking About?
Ok, I will admit, this is absolutely my favorite part. I love tinkering with old stuff and creating new things. As I keep saying, I am not a doctor, a lawyer, etc. I can not tell you that a certain project will cure or solve any particular problem. However, I will show you the projects that I have found helpful for the problems that I face. It may be something as simple as finding a new way to cut fabric to something a little more complex, like building a hamster cage for your favorite little furry critter. Through this blog, I hope to be able to help you with a few problems and to have a little fun. I would love to hear about any projects you are working on and any modifications you have used to make life a little easier.
