On our Facebook group, we have been discussing different ways of coping with Pseudomyxoma Peritonei. Lori shared this:
My dogs and cats gathered around me. Knowing I had to get up and take care of them forced me to keep moving once I got home. It would have been too easy to just sit around all day feeling sorry for myself (I live alone) but having them as responsibility got me going. I am in debt to them (but don’t tell them! They already boss me around and have me well trained!).
