Fatigue is the closest companion to your partner "pain" and you. Fatigue is your mother-in-law that you are stuck with.. You hate her and she hates you. She loves to make your life to a living hell.. When you manage cooperate with you partner "Pain", then comes your "beloved" mother-in-law to question you what you want to do next. Just to stop you because you are supposed to stay at home with no energy..(maybe you are a married woman in a strict culture where your place is at home cooking?)
At the same time the rest of your family and your friends lives a liberated modern life with activities 24/7. They expect you to do the same.. They don't really know your partner "Pain" or your mother-in-law "Fatigue". They have just heard you telling about them, not experienced them close up...
Your kid's name is "Stress: and loved to give you trubble. The combination of having mother-in-law over and "Stress" hyperactive is a nightmare.. You can't calm down "Stress" because your mother-in-law "Fatigue" is nagging at the same time. "Fatigue" don't tolerate her grandkid "Stress" being energetic and it is always YOU who has to take care of it..
My "mother-in-law" Fatigue moved in with us full-time this year and I am soon going nuts of her nagging all the time. My "partner" Pain don't see the problem with Fatigue living with us..
I bet my real fiancé will laught loudly and long when he reads it :-P
I just felt like making a funny explanation about living with pain, fatigue and stress. I hope you enjoyed this :)
