I just had another little break down, feeling sorry for myself. Feeling like crap EVERY single day of my life. I had never planned to be stuck at home, depressed and sick. So focused on my numerous symptoms that I forget about my marriage and what my husband may need. Anyway, to all of you out there with children, I commend you. I literally do not know how you do it. Wow. I am impressed. Although I may not know you, I am thinking about you.  love, amey

Hey Amey,

I'm so sorry you are going through this. I wish we all lived near each other so we could give each other a big hug. It's really hard for everyone. I'm lucky in a way because my children are older. Two girls, one 19 and one 14. I am thankful they can fend for themselves. I have NO clue what I would do if I had smaller children bacause i've been stuck back in bed again. I don't know how people with young kids function. I'm blessed to have a husband that understands too. If I wouldn't have him, I would pretty much be alone. I've actually lost friends from this <sigh>. I get like you sometimes too. I just bust out and cry. No one can ever understand what we go through unless they have this.

Anyway, I just wanted to say that I understood what you were going through and that you are not alone. Thank God we have these boards to get support from others going through the same thing.

For me, I think it is b/c of my kids that I can be more positive and hopeful. They force me to be a good example. I have to fight this, for their sakes.
Maybe if it were just me that was sick, I would handle it differently, be more likely to give in to it.
My family also gets "it" because we all have it. We understand how you can feel decent one day and horrible the next.

But I also totally know where you are coming from- it is soooo hard to think positively and act "normally" when this disease just wraps you up in its ****
I am thinking of you and sending hugs that you feel better soon
