That was as clear as a bell!!! See? you will be able to gather your thoughts better as you go on!!
I know that sometimes it feels like forever when you are struggling, but you really are showing signs of improvement!
As for your M-I-L, I just got done with a weekend with my step-daughter - boy that was a struggle!! I can most definitely share in your frustrations!
When you said "i cant be around people who are spiteful and think they know it all" and "i have to limit my exposure to them" - you are sooo right!!
We really do need to have a positive mind set to better help ourselves to heal! You are doing what you can to protect your health by staying away from those people as much as you can. Some people will just never get it. Like you, I can't exactly just tell her to not come over!
I would suggest though that those here that haven't read the "Spoon Theory" do so - it really does help explain to others about
our energy levels and how they change from one day to the next - heck!! sometimes it's from one minute to the next! LOL!
