Getting so mad at myself and the world

Mar 13, 2017 4:02 AM

Why can't anyone understand
I try every day I get up and function (barley) I go to work I clean and cook because I'm a mum
Inside I'm in pain ,outside I'm in pain ,it hurts to walk ,it hurts to lay down ,it hurts to sleep !
But I do it. !!
And because I do it no one who knows me seems to think I'm as hurt and poorly as I am ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜กinstead it's just assumed that I moan a lot or I'm mard
It's hard enough without feeling like I can't say iv got a headache or my skin feels raw !because telling anyone a small part of how I'm feeling and getting rolling eyes ๐Ÿ‘€ make me feel like I should just give up
All I want to do is stay in bed and cry and sleep or try to
But I can't .... because too many people rely on me

Sorry had to have a vent
I'm sooooo fed up I need some sunshine and heat ๐Ÿ˜ข

Claw, it's okay to vent no need to apologize to us, we've all been in your shoes and it suckes! I have to take care of my kid's and the house work because people don't see to remember to do thier chores because"thier elbow hurt's!) Here I am in pain everywhere doing those people's chores! They don't seem to care about the health of the other person. they care only about themselves! I feel your pain, I'd love to just sit back and relax but I'm the only one who knows how to take care of the housework.

I had to learn to a saying and it sticks with me now and that saying is " I am who I am and your approval is not needed"

That saying has helped me a bunch when people try to get me angry. Hug's love and prayers to you hunni.
