Having a Bad Day

Mar 23, 2015 12:46 PM

I'm having such a hard time today... I am so exhausted and tired of being in pain. I guess I'm having a pity party. It's just that every now and then, after 22 years of 24/7/365 pain, anxiety, depression, loss of my old lifestyle, I get overwhelmed and just sit here and sob. (Which doesn't help the migraine I have and plugs up my nose!!!) I SHOULD be focussed on the fact that the sun is shining, the sky is blue, I'm alive and breathing, have a roof over my head, family and friends and all of YOU wonderful people who are always together to help one another with love, understanding and compassion. Guess I just have to let it all out, cleanse myself shedding these tears and then just relax and try to take a nap. Well, I'm off the soapbox now and I'm going to TRY to follow my own advice and relax. I hope you're all having a blessed, peaceful day with a light pain load. 💕😊🌻🙏🌺

AlwayZ, It's ok to have a pity party, especially when we feel our worst. And remember what I've been saying, that "crying (tears) is opening the release valve on the pressure of us living with chronic issues." It sort of comes from Ecclesiastes 3... A time for everything. I think we're all catching it rough with this crazy yo-yo weather. I know the past 2 weeks have been my toughest in a long time.

Now that you've released the pressure go do something very relaxing like read a book, watch a movie, take a bubble bath, or nap etc. Or do what I'm about to: eat a dark chocolate Hershey's mini bar with peanut butter...mmmm! I'm praying you'll have a better evening and day tomorrow! 🙏🌼

I think having a pity party must be in the air. I have been focused all day and have be tolerating the pain like a champion, but now I am so tired. I am tired of dealing with the constant pain. It's never ending. I guess this is my night of weeping as I try my best to head to the gym to get in the water. Joy will hopefully be here in the morning.

I understand totally, there are days that I would say just itmy foot off it hurts so bad from the nueropathy or everything hurts as usual but lately even standing and walking hurts more and more every day! It hurts to stand and cut vegetables for soup or salad so I sit in my wheely chair and do so but yet have the cRe giver do a lot of that for me as well, I am glad I have someone come in and help me practically every day. And yes I have a potty party every once in while because without letting my feelings out either out loud or in my journal I would be in bed never ever getting out. When that's just going to far for me!

Oh my I was crying today that I want my life back, that this is not fair and so on. I keep saying I can't take the pain anymore but I will and I have to. It is going around...as I tell myself chin up buttercup tomorrow is a new day. Wishing you some relief!

Hey guys I think all of this crazy weather that we have been dealing with this year has a lot to do with this. I believe if the sun will come out to stay. We will all start feeling better. When we can start getting outside piddleing in our yards and gardens we will all feel better. Keep you all in my thoughts and prayers.

Thank you all very much for rallying by my side as you all have since I found this wonderful community. I wasn't feeling much better this morning but I am now. (FlappsyLady, Hershey Special Dark is my fave and I JUST had a mini with peanut butter!! YUMMY... You and I are so much alike, it's almost scary...LOL!!!) everyone is in my thoughts and prayers and thanks again. 😊💕
