It just seems like I loose more and more. And past experience proves that I never get what is “lost” back. Sometimes it improves slightly, but not normally.
Ok, let me amend my last post. I never got my hands back totally, but they did improve from not being able to use them at all (no exaggeration) to being able to use them in a somewhat normal way as long as I know my limits. Does that make sense?**
My husband always says that I need to not do so much. But, truth be known, I really don’t do ANYTHING. My house is a mess, I only shower every other day, and I sleep like 10/12 hours a day at least.
Ok, so a normal rational man who loves you says that you do too much and need to slow down. YOU say you don’t do anything. Hmmmmm, I wonder who I’ll believe?
I want you to sit down and seriously think about all you do in a day. EVERYTHING. From taking care of yourself to cooking, to cleaning to caring for pets…in detail. Now, tell me you don’t do anything;) Oh yeah, then there is that little thing called sex. That takes A LOT of energy!!!
Do less? Is it possible?
Ummm, yup, it sure is:o. I have had flare ups so bad that lasted for so long that I was positive that the rocks in my backyard had to be more productive than me. But this is an up and down disease. And some of us progressively keep getting worse with each “down” and never quite as good during an “up”.
I look around and see how other twenty five year olds act. I feel like their grandmothers.
grandmother??? I have had grandmothers pass me with an exasperated huff in the grocery store because I was going too slow. LOL
But I am sure you understand this all to well.
Yes, i do. Hard as it is, you really need to stop comparing. Or at least cut back, lol. You are not other 25 year olds. And you are certainly not a healthy one. But there are other 25 year olds with terminal illnesses or in extreme poverty that would switch places with you in a heartbeat. I’m not trying to beat you up, just offer a helpful perspective (or at least it’s helpful to me).
You are always in my thoughts Malia. Blessings to you and yours.
Right back at ya!!!
