hi- sorry for youre not feeling good about yourself today..tomorrow is a new day!!!
i try to stay away from high school reunions also!!!!
but that is besides the point today is done but tomorrow will be better!!!!
Yesterday at 3 p.m pulled myself out of bed, after bawling to my 23 yr old-He understands tho, his gf has Crohns, I got dressed, put on make-up and took my 15 yr old to the grocery store with me. Made a huge dinner for my husband and sons and I feel alot better today. Vented to my honey last night too, who usually pulls me up out of this plus having you all is great!
Those days are inevitable...it stinks that they happen, but boy when they hit? they hit hard.
Feels like we'll never get through them and feels like they will never pass either. It is an awful feeling. I believe these feelings are specific to chronic illness. It's a little different from "normal" people's "bad days". To reassure you though...it is NORMAL to feel this way.
SO glad you have a strong support system, for that is most important.
And yeah, I do the same...make-up always helps!
Like for today? I really do not feel physically the BEST...but I'll do my darndest to have a good hair day! LOL. Superficial? yeah...but important!
Take care Cheryl.
Yes, 62 is my birth year. Ill be 44 in Nov. Thanks for all your uplifting. I wish I couldve found this forum years ago. Off to celebrate my 11 yr old sons bd. today. Doing better emotionally plus my honey has taken the day off. Yea! More love!
Boy Cheryl, I'm often there too! I hope you are doing much better now! I'm 36, been w/hubby 16 years, have 2 little ones, and have gained 80 lbs due to all this unwanted health crap, I too was the 'hottie' for a short while until this all began. And have/had many of the same gripes and more....
But, before I get myself and everyone else depressed - feel better. We sometimes have to go down before we can get back up. It stinks.....but, i guess we're learning something along the way, right? I don't know WHAT, but something! Maybe it's tolerance and understanding for others we will encounter in the future....hope for other to show them, "YES, you can and will get through times like these!"
Thank you so much for that CaMama.
It helps and has been helping SO much having everyone in my life. Its been a tough month or so emotionally and Im not sure why. I have been like Erin most of the last 7 years, having a disease, but it not having me. Maybe since I have to go and see new docs next month and have had to go off all meds, except. Pred.... that has thrown me. Fear of the unknown of new people looking at me? I dislike change anyway, plus my Rheumy kinda irriated me at my last appt. too, it may have been that also. Plus having no period for months, I swear Im heading into pre-meni. My oldest sis started in her early 40's too.
Gotta go. Its raining here. Yuck.
Have a great day all. Heres to all my new friends!
