    100%. I try to do a meal service when I can or just order easy stuff from Amazon (I’m in a city so that’s available. I know I’m lucky with that.). But there is no way I can cook with the pain.

    When I cook it takes so much out of me I’m pretty much ruined for hours afterwards. Fatigue makes it difficult to focus on cooking.

    Tiny kitchen, but still hard to move around and keep food preparation as easy as possible.

    And I keep falling down from one counter top to the other. Weird.

    It is a very long process to prepare a meal.my neuropathy is in both feet so I will usually start to do my little happy dance that I do when I am in pain and my husband will notice and he has to come in and finish the meal. He is really good about knowing when I am done even before I call him to come take over for me. I feel very blessed to have him because he is such a big help to me. I use my instant pot a lot to make meals because it helps.

    While I love to cook and bake, MS says, "Not today sweetie ". So I've started cooking extra on those days when I'm better and making my own freezer meals. I don't eat fast food. Well except for pizza and a rare visit to Sonic, but otherwise the extra chicken, Poultry, fish Cooks in 2-3 portions and gets frozen. Then it's just put the veg and maybe potatoes, rice, beans, etc on to heat up. It's not a great system but at least I won't starve. LOL, I can always stand to lose a few pounds anyway. If all else fails at the moment grab fruit and cheese and do a dinner time picnic.

    Very little I can do "Safely"😥 I used to love to cook and entertain.

    My hubs has been a trooper the last 5 years! We subscribed to a meal kit program. Everything delivered & you cook. Hubs does not typically enjoy cooking. He did enjoy cooking and learning how to cook things. I would sit and describe steps. Those are on the spendy side, so we stopped ordering them. He has used things he has learned. 🙂 While we still eat out and elsewhere prepared foods, the home cooked foods are yummy.
