I threw my back out the other day! I can barely move. I'm hopped up on pain killers and feeling really out of it. I slept on and off all day and now it's 2 a.m. and I'm wide awake.
Ellie's got casts on both legs and she HATES it! I feel so bad for her but she was so whiny today! Drove me crazy and now I feel guilty about it 'cause I know she's miserable and I should be more sympathetic.
I just snapped at my husband because he asked me to come to bed. What the heck did I do that for?! He was trying to be nice.
Abbey and Kayla are being so helpful and I'm sure I'm not appreciating it enough. I feel like all I do is nag at them.
There's something wrong with the transmission on my car so I have to take it to the shop tomorrow. (if I can drive by then)
Okay I've run out of things to complain about and posts to respond to. And the pain killers are finally starting to kick back in so I'm finally going to bed now.
(((HUGS))) I am sorry everything is going so rotten right now. Maybe leave notes for your family when you aren't already peeved for the day so that they will still have a reminder that things are just off right now. My mom did that after my twin brothers were born and it helped us out a lot.
((hugs)) I know when things get bad, it's easy to feel that way about everything (like you said about the older girls being helpful and snapping at the hubby) hopefully you'll start feeling better soon! I would do something special (like take the family for ice cream) when you felt better to acknowledge your mood without having to do it while you still feel bad
"Disability is not a brave struggle or ‘courage in the face of adversity.’ Disability is an art. It’s an ingenious way to live."
Thanks. We're all feeling better now. I'm blaming my bad mood on the pain killers. I switched meds and now I feel much more like myself. Can't lift anything over 20lbs for a while which is a challenge but I'm managing.
Ellie's walking in her casts! Sort of....She's pulling herself up and walking around the furniture and using her walker for a few steps at a time.
And the car got fixed.
I took your advice yesterday. The notes and the ice cream were a big hit and I feel much less like a grouchy monster.
Anyway thanks again for letting me vent. I tried talking to a friend about it on Friday and she basically just told me to get over it. It's nice to share with people who understand.
