Last night, I was in a lot of pain and was so very weak, I just felt so sick. It came time to take the children to their weekly club meeting, and because my husband was sick with a virus, I decided I could maybe be able to drive the children there. They had a lot of fun learning and playing, and when it was over, around 8:30 p.m., I was ready colapse right then and there, I was so weary and sick. My children wanted to stay and play with their friends for a while, but I just couldn't stay any longer. I started telling my 7 year old, "I'm sorry, honey, I'm just too sick to stay." After more fussing and trying to persuade me to stay longer, she finally said, "That's all you care about, Mom - your sickness!" I'll have to tell you, that really hurt my feelings. I know she didn't understand how much it hurt me or why. I tried to explain about how I have to conserve my energy, and how I have to be careful to not over-do it, or else I'll be "out-of-commision" for several days. (I'll have to explain to her the spoon theory I learned from the "Got Spoons?" website. Check it out - you'll love it!) Well, my children have just come in the door, so I'd better close for now. I hope I didn't get your shoulder too wet. God bless!
