* Research new washing machine
* Fill anti depressant pescription
* blow up gym ball
* do 10 minutes of pilates
* figure out how to explain to my mom that just cos i'm on the pred and looking well, doesnt mean i feel well! She asked me to do the dishes (which she used then left!) and i replied that i would do what i could cos i feel unwell after an iron infusion last night. Well that just isnt good enough apparently. She then asked me ' if i felt up to it', if i could google a new washine machine and get prices for her. How flipping condescending. She wouldnt even look at me while she said it. She knows she's out of line. But she works, so its my job to be the slave of the house! I didnt even say NO, i said i'd do as much as i could.
Why is it no-one ever understands? I mean i look like hell, i certainly feel unwell. I even told her my blood results last night, (Hb - 28, ferritin 94) so they are WAY low, but no no no, i have to do the dishes! COS ITS SUPER IMPORTANT!!!!
Sorry guys, turned into abit of a rant, just so frustrated at her never understanding. If she cant, then why should anyone else?????
