sometimes having a pity party is needed. I bawled in my Neph's office yesterday and all the way home and then on an off the rest of the night, I am holding back tears today. I am just super frusterated and ALL SET! Let it all out, cry your eyes out. Then go out and do something nice for yourself you deserve it.
It is very hard pretending everything is ok for everyone else and trying to be 'normal' I don't even know what that is anymore.
Take a nice hot bath, get a glass of wine and a trashy celeb magazine or a good book. That always seems to help me feel a little better.
I keep telling myself it could be worse, I could have all this and have broken arms and/or legs. Then I would not be able to wipe my own bloody arse 25 times a day. (this is my poor attempt at humor).
You know your body and keep on pushing!
