That's what I love about this site - we're all in this together, and can share our ups and downs. I too worry about complaining too often especially to my husband, but then if I don't say anything, he interprets that all must be fine. Recently he was sick with a virus and was crampy and had the runs - surprise...he lay in bed and acted like he was dying. Yet that's what it's like all the time for us, and yet we go to work, cook supper, clean the house....
I just try to do the best I can, and I try to refrain from saying I feel terrible unless I'm really down for the count...if I say I'm sick at work, they know I'm sick. They've seen me come in really ill and tough it out. I kind of take pride in that. It helps me to think of my symptoms on a scale from 1-10. If I'm really sick and should be hospitalized, it's above 8. Below 5 I don't mention anything, I just live with it. Between 6-8, I put my husband on alert, because I feel horrible, but I'm toughing it out, but I know from previous experience that it can escalate quickly.
The good news is I've been running at less than 5's pretty well the whole month of July!!!!
Please keep telling us how you feel - that's what we're here for! This is the best place to share, because we've been there too.
