With my kids in school, me being retired, and, of course, the limitations of my multiple sclerosis (MS), I have a lot of free time on my hands. I’d like to say that I always use it productively, but that’s far from the truth.
I putter — if you can do that from a wheelchair. I assume you can, but the dictionary definition is a little vague on that point. Regardless, only some of my activities are truly aimless. I watch television, surf the internet on my tablet (and then the smaller internet on my phone), and read.
Not all of my reading is about multiple sclerosis, though, for obvious reasons, I do devote quite a bit of time to it. I still keep up with topics from my past life in the U.S. Army, and recently, I came across an article about impostor syndrome as it applies to military special operators. It was a fascinating read, prompting me to consider how the syndrome affects those of us with a chronic disease.
