We are downsizing from a big 5 bedroom to a smaller house on the coast. We have to be out by Christmas and just the thought of what there is to do makes me want to hide under the duvet. I'm exhausted after packing up one box let alone going to get the boxes which takes forever, and sorting through years worth of possssions and everyones stuff.. My husband works away so can only help at weekends. The loft is terrifying. I dont know where to start. There are things up there I could sell that are worth a few bob, but I have no energy to sort through it all. I went up yesterday to have a look and make a start, but it would take months to clear it all. We have 5 grown up kids but they are all busy with their own lives and live too far away to help.I dont know why im posting this as there is nothing anyone can do. I just feel helpless at the moment. Im 57 and ten years ago i could have managed all this with no problem. Now my fibro has got so bad and the menopause on top as well as general ageing. Its a horrible business.
