I believe the hardest thing for most of us with Lupus and kids is to admit I just can't do it...
Most people don't understand that just because I look healthy in no way means I am healthy. We have limitations most people don't understand. One day we may feel great and go grocery shopping and then BAM... We're done.
The Spoon Theory is wonderful. It's all a mater of prioritising. I know for me if there is something I need or want to do on my day off, I do it first thing in the morning. Usually then I'm whipped..
I believe that our children will become better people by knowing what it's like to have to help out at home. Also learning there are limitations in life and not to take things for granted.
A clean house does not reflect the person you are, nor does volunteering at school. You are obviously a loving and caring mother and your daughter will growup knowing that... I stoped volunteering this year for different things as well. It was very hard at first but now my kids understand. To me, that is all that matters. If other parents judge, so be it. They don't live in my shoes..
I hope you get some energy back soon and work becomes more tolerable for you. Enjoy your little girl.. They grow up on us soo darn quick!
