I'm really feeling guilty lately about my limited participation in my children's activities. Actually, they are teenagers. My son just turned 18 and my daughter is 15. I had always been very active with them. For years I took them to gymnastics & meets, tennis lessons & tournaments, piano lessons, voice lessons, dance lessons etc. Last week my daughter had dance team tryouts for school, a tennis invitational and a dance competition. I managed to get through the tennis invitational that left me sitting in the truck from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. (Because it was 34 degrees outside and my truck seats are heated.) I got out and walked around but mostly stayed in the truck. The following day she had a dance competition that lasted from 11:00 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. (we got home by 9:15p.m.) That was Saturday & Sunday. By Monday morning I could barely move. And she had another tennis match after school that was again an hour away. I just couldn't do it. So, my husband cancelled his team's tennis practice and went to her match. I've always been able to be there for my children. They know about my fibromyalgia and say "it's o.k if you don't feel like it mom." But I still feel like I'm letting them down. It makes me feel like a horrible parent. Anyone else feel this way? How do I get past it?
