Haven't felt this way for a while

Jan 09, 2016 11:13 AM

My whole body from my neck right down to my toes feels like one tight spasm knot and my mood is a zero it's all I can do to not crawl into bed pull the duvet over my head and just stay there and fighting back the tears coming from someone who almost never cries I don't know where this is coming from
Maybe I'm just having a blue day?

Sounds like it. For me, on those days, the best thing I can do for myself and the people around me, is to go back to bed. Take you a nap and the try again. It's ok to have those kinda days. We all deal with so much. Gentle hugs

Will try once the kids are in bed but I can't be much fun to be around just now I'm either happy bitting people's heads off or busting into tears Gentle hugs back at ya xx

Do u have a neighbor or friend family member that could take the kids to a movie or on some kind of adventure out if the house while u rest?

How old are your kids? I'm very lucky in that I have an 18,16 and 7 yr old so my big kids help me out A LOT! I'm having a bad day today so my son just made me some lunch and they both cleaned the kitchen for me. I would be lost without my kiddos

My daughter is 9 with her own health problems Most of my friends and family are of the mind set that" I just have to get up and get on with it" "it can possibly be that bad" So instead of crawling under my duvet and hiding from the world ive come down to my pals she's really good with me unless I'm mopping then she kicks my butt apparently she can tell the difference between the two lol Gentle hugs to everyone xx

Take it easy Tiggerhurts. Do only what you have to do. Stress can make your muscles tense all over. Try and relax your body & mind every chance you get with slow deep breathing. Tighten your muscles up and then relax them, starting at your feet and moving up to your head, slow deep breathing all the while. Hugs & prayers tomorrow will be a better day. πŸ˜·πŸŒΌπŸ™

Sweet gentle gentle hugs for Tiger,I understand you are tired and wore out. Rest, do everything you can and know to do to get it back under control....if that doesn't work then seek your doctors help..I know this is not the wanted response.. But I see that you are a strong pain warrior, and I know this too shall pass.Sounds corny huh....its also appears from your Post that you are raising a mighty strong woman there!!! Keep your faith, rest, carry on! Vent when you need too. Much love and blessings, Terri

Thank you all for your kind words I had my friend help me into a hot bath my first for a long time and it helped a lot with the pain my mood has lifted a little today but I think that has more to do with the fact that I am getting to spend the whole day today with my big sister Big gentle hugs to all and you are all right "This too shall pass!" We will get through this and because we are strong pain warriors xoxox
