Caring for sick people while in pain

Oct 06, 2016 2:40 AM

I'm doing my absolute best to keep going,
i have a sick two year old with the flu, diarrhea and a cough; and i have a husband the same thing in man flu style(still working during the day).
Cooking, cleaning, giving medications, carrying a child around and running after him all day.
There are no breaks.
I'm just looking at my pills thinking 'just take a couple more, that will get you theough"
I feel like I'm going crazy,
I'm not looking forward to tonight the pain with be unbearable.
Its dinner time now, the worst time of day.
Wish me luck, atleast i can take my night dose now.

Sorry, I've been off for a couple of days, I'm sorry to hear about your baby and Hubby being sick with the flu.

I can understand how being in pain and taking care of a loved goes, I took care of my elderly Aunt until she passed. Take care of yourself too. I pray they are feeling better today, I hate when my babies are sick lol and my babies are teenagers lol! Loving supportive Hug's and Prayer's headed your way!πŸ™πŸ’–

Always seem to be the caregiver when hubby & youngest daughter are sick. When I'm sick they leave me to sleep it off. When they are sick, I'm cooking, cleaning and trying to feel normal so not to complain. Ugh I hope things are better at your home now!

MKnight. You have same pain areas as I do right now. I hope you get through the bad times . Soon they will be okay. But I hope you don t get it too. I have that dry hacking cough right now and it is taking so much energy out of me😩. Take care of yourself also.
