QT, I am sorry you are going through a rough patch.. I too have not been up to doing much, am in unbearable pain, and haven't been able to sleep till the wee hours of the morning because the aches get so bad. Ughh, I am with you when you say this disease is awful.. especially since I am only 21 years old!!!!! Every day at some point I stop and think "how will I be years from now if I feel this bad at 21?"
I am soo sorry about your mother and I don't blame you for worrying or even being depressed.. thats normal! But I agree with Marlee that it isn't going to make things any better to make a huge dinner for you and your husband if you are feeling this lowsy. Let him know how you are feeling! Spend a relaxing night with him!!
I really hope that tomorrow brings relief and happiness to you.

Trying to maintain a positive attitude here too, with the winter being SO bad I am in lots more pain and now my right knee is hurting like all get out- have no clue what I did to it! I did start walking at the mall and you would think that would be good for my body, but the knee is telling me a different story!
Sorry to hear about your mom, and it sounds like they are on top of things. Let us know how she is doing though OK?
I woke up this morning feeling pretty bad. Took my medication and went back to bed. I am now feeling a bit better. At least I'm up and moving.
I am so sorry about your mother. It reminds me of when I took care of my dad. It hit me one day that I didn't have much time left and I ended up crying & so upset. The next day I tried to pull myself together and be strong for dad. I knew there was nothing I could do to change anything, so decided to try and enjoy what time we had left and be strong for him.
You can never change things, they will happen & we just have to adjust and be strong. Marlee is right, you need to let your hubby know how you feel. You are making yourself sick by pushing when you should be resting. Your hubby will understand. My dh makes supper more than I do anymore. He knows that most days I'm not up to it. It will really help you to start being honest with him about the way you feel.
I hope things get better for you and you can be strong for yourself. Just know that things will get better. We always have our good times and hard times, but it's how we get thru them that matters. Take care!
Never regret something that made you smile!

Glad you got some sun back in your life! Jason reminds me of my dh. He would drag me out of bed after awhile and get me going. It does seem to help too! At least you're up and moving and hopefully you will see less pain for some time!
You're mom is proud of you for a reason! To be able to do what you are doing for her is great. It is funny what we can set our mind to if it is someone we love. She probably feels so much better that you are there for her. My dad was uncomfortable around all of the nurses and felt better after we moved him in with us and I started taking care of him.
I hope things continue to look up for you and that your mom does better.
