Hey Y'all, finished moving to the new house yesterday.  The last three days I've been moving like a cyclone, taking the darvocet arounnd the clock and really overheating.  Today it's catching up to me.  I'm in a total brain fog, I hurt all over, pain meds not working, starting to break out in hives, hands and feet really hurt.  SOOOOOOOOOO  Exhusted.  This is the first time I majorlly over did it since becoming sick.  I kept getting really hot and flushed like I was cooking from the inside out, and instead of stopping and trying to cool off, I pushed my through it and  kept going.  I have bruises all over my body, I feel like I'm shaking inside and I'm sick to my stomach.  I'm mad at myself for doing too much, frustrated that I couldn't do more and depressed that this is the way I feel after doing some hard work.  I'm swimming in boxes and can't even get out of bed for very long.  I hope this passes soon.  Thanks for the vent.

Hi Jennifer,
I am sorry to hear that you are so ill.  I hope that you get to feeling better.  I think that we all tend to overdo it sometimes and then seriously pay for it.  If you don't get to feeling any better, then you may need to call your doctor and see what they can do for you.  Try to take it as easy as possible and have others help you.  I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
 
Hugs,
K

Jennifer, please take it easy if you can or you could end up really sick and I'd hate to see you end up in the hospital. Your body is telling you that it just can't do anymore. Boxes can wait - your health is more important. I know how frustrating it feels to have your body betray you and the frustration of feeling so sick when you have so much to do. This disease just really stinks!!!

Take care of yourself. I wish we could all come over and help you move so that you wouldn't have so much to do.

Hi Jennifer,
 
Oh dear.  This doesn't sound good at all.  HOw are you tonight?  YOu sound like me from last week.  Like the others have said, take it really easy and pamper that body. Everything else can wait. Don't let yourself get on that slippery slope.

Jennifer, moving can be the most physically stressful thing you'll ever do and you've had to do it sick and with two little ones. How much can your hubby help you? As you know, I've been under a time crunch to get my house on the market and I thought it was going to kill me, and I had plenty of help and no kids. But one thing that kept me going was the knowledge that once I moved into the new place I had the rest of my life to unpack. Take your time and take the pressure off yourself. Your priority is a. to get some rest so that b. you can be a strong mom, and c. you can get your home in order. You can't be any good for yourself or your family if you don't slow down and get your strength back. I' call on friends and family, if you have any nearby, to help with the kids for a while so you can get some real rest. The boxes can wait. Early last week I went into panic mode so I finally sat down, took a deep breath and called a couple of friends and said, "help, I need a friend" and they were more than happy to come over and help. It's hard for me to do that but I'm glad I did. If you don't have friends in the area, maybe there's a mother's-day-out nearby. I'm worried about you Jennifer because I don't want you to crash. I hope you're talking with your hubby about all this. Let us know how it's going. I'm sorry things are so hard for you right now.

Hey Y'all, I took it real easy last night. Went to bed at 10:00. I have to tell everyone that Ambien has made a huge difference for me. I take it, go to bed and fall asleep faster then I ever have in my life. I wake up in the morning alert and ready to start the day, that is as soon as pain meds kick in. My bruises look better today, and I'm just bveing real easy on my hands and feet. I got the kid's rooms set up and that's all I'm doing today. The only thing left on plate today is cleaning up after dinner(hubby cooks) and getting the kids to bed. Thank you all for your concern and kind thoughts.

Glad to hear you're feeling better! Moving is exhausting work! Take it nice and slow. Judy

Hey all, just wanted to let you know that I survived the move. I managed to get the house livable in just under a week. I'm sore and exhausted but I'm done for a little while anyway. The only thing left is to hang pictures and set up my homeschool area but that can wait until hubby has time. Huge thanks to everyone for your words of support and kind prayers.
