Whole body

Jan 31, 2016 10:37 AM

Today is a really bad day, my whole body hurts. Usually it's my feet and they do hurt but my whole body hurts just as bad. Won't get anything done today and my dishes need doing. I wish my daughter would offer to help but she doesn't, and I won't ask.

Hey Bethann, maybe you should ask. There are times like today when you can't get stuff done. Why not say, hey, can you do me a favor and clean those dishes, I'm having a bad day. No harm no foul. It doesn't all have to fall on you. I wish that you felt better, I'm sorry you're having a bad day. Sending you gentle {{{Hugs}}} and prayers that the day gets better for you. 💕🙏🏻🌻

I agree with alwaz.. U could ask..if she says no well the dishes will just sit another day. Can u call a neighbor or friend that may can help u out bring u a meal and help with plates also. I suggest switch to plastc and paper goods.like paper bplates and plastic forks ect so when u eat or drink u just toss it all..it wi mean having more trash but at least no dishes..

Bethann, I'm sorry you're having a rough day. I'm in a flare so I totally understand not being able to do everything or anything. I think asking your daughter's help is a good idea. She might surprise you, hopefully. I keep paper plates around for bad times, like Newfibrogirl suggested. Sending hugs, love, & prayers for a better day tomorrow! 🙂🙏💕🌼

She works and is tired and besides she has an (asshole) boyfriend that gets pissed when I ask for anything. I will be getting some paper plates, right now I'm using paper towels, so that will keep the dishes down. I still have things to do from my vacation. It won't get done today but it will.

Take your time. It doesn't all have to be done at the same time. Hugs! 🙂🙏💕🌼
