I feel I accomplish NOTHING

For a long time when all of my health went crashing down. I couldn't do much of anything. As this has gone on I see my husband having to do so many of the house hold chores, errands etc. This just made me frustrated and depressed. I love taking care of others. I love doing for people. It is not in my nature not to.
So with some thought and a little help from anti depressants I have come up with a "tool" that works for me.
I keep a journal. This is my medicine journal where I log my 14 plus meds a day to be sure I take everything and on on time. I also log blood pressure and how I feel.
Along with all of that, as the day goes on I list what I did.
Washed my lunch dishes
Took dogs in and out to yard
Fixed Marks dinner
Some days it is very simple or very few due to how I feel. Other days I am amazed at the end of the day what I did. But each day I see that I did something and that makes me feel better.
I also have reconnected with folks on Social sites. Family and friends. I can't get across town to see my grandson like I use to. So we have invented Skype breakfast. He gets his food ready and I get mine. We visit and talk and he reads me books (he is 3). And again I feel like I am helping because his mommy gets cleaning done or some quite time while I "Skypesit" as she calls it.
Please let me know if you have other ideas and I hope these come in handy for you.
It's a beautiful thing,
