Sonia67, I know the feeling of needing to keep on top of the housework but you must remember that you work and work hard and that the housework will be there when you're not. Rest when you need to, your body is currently telling you that you need to recharge your batteries so go with it.

Don't beat yourself up! I'm a single parent to a 14 year old and as much as I love her I can't keep up with the hours of housework when my teenage daughter watches me suffer. But as a mum and a woman I know that no matter how messy my house is my daughter comes before all that and I suffer. People and family members put me down for living in a messy home...sets a bad example some say and believe I'm a bad parent! My life revolves around my daughters happiness and everything else comes later. Even without a child years ago I was messy. However this never impacts on my ability to be a good parent! Clean clothes,good food and manners and morals. I think I've done a good job even with a chronic lifelong condition She knows she's loved so I'm happy. So don't worry about mess...it will still be there when you feel able to do it. I do 15 mins cleaning 15 mins rest several times a day to help myself. If anyone needs to talk we are all here to listen and help 😊 chin up! X

I think we all can relate to this. Chronic pain sucks the life out of us. Do you take extra B vitamins? That can help with energy and nerve pain. Also vitamin D can help with energy and pain. With vitamin D you need about 15 minutes of sunshine to help activate it.

I started the whole 30 diet and it has helped with inflimation but also with my energy. Its more than a diet, its a life change. I am very happy with the results with my energy and clearing of the my fog mind. The pain, well, what seems to help the most for me ia accupuncture.

Have they checked your thyroid? That will do it for sure.

I totally understand. I have chronic pain and a sleep disorder and my house looks like a disaster area at the moment. What helps me is to break tasks up into many small parts that each don't take long on their own. That way I still accomplish something, but it's easy to stop if I can't handle doing much.

My home has been neglected so long (years) that to do most anything is overwhelming. I don't give up though. I do the 15 minutes of work but will need med help to get back to it after a rest. I often can't notice a difference in the little I've done but eventually I &My family notice a difference. Not often enough to keep it from being a mess however. When I get accepted for permanent disability (Court date in August ) i will hire a housekeeper.
