      I have diabetic neuropathy so use horse chestnut to aide in circulation. Also, butter melon aides in managing blood sugars and also helps with circulation. I'm a truck driver so I sit for up to 14 hours a day, cankles are a big issue.

      Heating pads. And lots of apps to remind me to do things, one for my meds, one for my to-do list, and one to keep moving.

      I'm on so many medications and I got sick of sorting them every week, so I ordered a device that I pay around $20 (I think it recently went up) a month for called Hero. I can set it up to go off when it is time to take my meds and it dispenses them for me. I used to dread med sort nights especially if I wasn't feeling well and now I don't have to worry about it and it tells me when my meds are getting low.

          @1lovemyheatingp8d I like the Microsoft sculpt or Kenesso I think is the brand it has a split keyboard. I also use a sit stand desk and I use compression typing gloves.

      A plastic folding chair in the shower, compression gloves for my arthritic wrists, small pill containers that I can fill and take with me in my purse(of course), lots of notebooks and planners that I can write down what I need to remember plus I can plan out what I need to do and mete it out over the week so that I am not overdoing it, lots of rice socks including one that I can put on my eyes, the ability to message my doctors offices through patient portals or front office messaging text numbers, a really good support system and tons and tons of prayer! I know that's a lot. I hope something in here helps you. 💕 Be strong! You're amazing! 🫂
