Why is it that sometimes I feel so irritable?  I am so tired of my bottom hurting, my joints aching, feeling neauseated, blah, blah, blah.  Sorry, I am ranting a bit!  Do you guys just feel irritable because you wonder if you will ever have a day where you feel good again?

Yes, yes and yes. You're only human and because you are only human, being in pain 24/7 can make a saint grumpy! I always hurt to some degree, not only from my Uc but other things as well and let me tell you - it takes a lot to keep my temper down to a simmering level. Of course, I hide it very well but every once in a while, it gets to be too much and I tend to snap at everyone who even says "Boo" to me. It's tough that is for sure but you know what helps me? When I am in a real foul mood, I try to look at the GOOD things and not focus so much on the bad. Or I do something I enjoy to take my mind off things. But heaven forbid if someone interrupts me when I am trying to get into my "happy place"! lol

beeeeeeeeeotch is my middle name. It's OK to be irritable, but not to have too many victims in your wake.

I hear you Gigi.

I have forgotten what it is to feel normal and have a good day.

Would love to know how it would feel.

((((Hugs to you))))
