I'm talking to my mom about how I plan to add a day of PT to my schedule per Dr recommendation. She heard him say I've got serious back problems as well as contributing factors from last surgeries that r causing me pain. So I mention that I'm stressed enough and I dont need her to be scawling at me while we discuss this. Then she gonna say oh so you the on my one stressed. Like really bitch I'm not doing this with you right now. Ugh...

Sometimes it’s easier to withdraw or avoid negative people. You gotta do what is best for you, even if it is your family. I am taking a break from my daughter for a while. She’s very understanding of my illness but she’s going thru some crap and acting all crazy which stresses me out. I told her I love her and I’m taking a break for my well-being. Not easy but if I don’t take care of myself no one will. Wishing you the best. 🤗

You have to take care of yourself! We need to surround ourselves with loving people who are understanding! Take it easy and I am sorry you are having to deal with this!🤗😊

I'm glad she heard the doc say you have serious back problems and need more PT. Maybe she needs time to let it sink in. It could be the fear of a mom. I've noticed something about myself. I don't like fear so my go to emotion is anger (like I can handle that any better)😕 give her time and if she doesn't come around, still follow your doctors recommendations. As others have said, you need to take care of yourself. Prayers for you. 🙏

Thanks guys..i will and plan to. But it's hard to give up the how of having a strong support system. This illness is so isolating and lonely and it's scary to feel I have to travel it alone.

You're not alone honey. I know we are not the same as actual family but we all definately understand.

We'll be your cyber support system. ❤️❤️❤️

I'll do my best to help y'all too.

I agree take care of you first. Your mom will come around in time. When she's ready. As a mom I agree it is hard to watch your baby be in so much pain and you can't do anything to help.

But what she can do is help you to get the help you need and support you every step of the way 🤗🤗 pm any time . I hope I said all this right 🤔 @newfibrogirl2
