I know many don't know me, but I really feel the need to vent. And maybe to know that I'm not alone.
I'm on medication Toprol XL 25mg to help with Tachycardia, but even while on it I still get symptomatic. Just trying to do laundry made me ill. It shouldn't drain me of all energy just to sort laundry. It was only 2 baskets of clothes I sorted through too.
I have 2 young children on top of it. My 3 year old boy is always on the go. (need I say more?) My daughter is in brownies, and I've been stressed about transportation for her. Plus I help her with her homework every day because she's only in first grade, and still needs help. (I think I would help regardless of grade level)
I guess I'm just overwhelmed with the happenings of normal life.
My poor husband gets up at 2:30am to be to work by 4am and then doesn't get home untill 5pm or later. Yesterday it was 6:30pm. (((sigh))) So really I'm doing it on my own, he helps as much as he can, but he's just never home.
I'm doing better then I was without meds, but the last couple of days has been hard. I feel just icky! In fact I'm tempted to take a nap on the couch. But I feel so guilty! There is so much that needs to be done and I just don't have the energy.
It's not just energy preventing me to do normal houshold cleaning though. I end up feeling faint and so weak I can barely lift my arms. I really wish I had the answers to whatever illness this is that's making me useless! Any suggestions?
Thanks for letting me vent, I hope it was ok that I did.
