My husband was very upset today because of something that happened at his work and although I felt bad for him, I did not feel like I used to. I know that is hard to understand. It seems I used to feel for people as if their pain was my pain. If people around me were sad, I was too. I am sort of obsessed with myself it seems, or maybe not. On the one hand I want to say that I am thinking constantly about resting or taking meds or whatever, you know, taking care of me, but on the other hand, I am still doing lots for my family and turning down little. Like, I might be mostly unavailable at night after work because all I want to do is lay on my bed and watch tv, but on Saturdays I take my daughter shopping or whatever she needs. I guess it might be normal to be a bit more focused on yourself if you are ill. I am not nearly as ill as many here. I struggle some with pain and fatigue, but am not completely incapacitated a large part of the time. I work full time and have not missed any days since getting sick again a few months ago and I do laundry, etc. I just worry that I am not being compassionate to others in my life because I want them to be compassionate to me, so I should reciprocate. I just don't pamper like I used to maybe. I maybe pamper me more and them less.... just interested in y'all's perspective.
