I listen to people talk about their busy schedules and it makes me exhausted just listening.Women holding down full time jobs, then dealing with several children and a hubby.Active in churches or other organizations and they never seem to stop. I feel as though i am lazy or something cause I am at home all day and may or may not find the energy to shower and get dressed.I know I am like this because of FM but it has been so long now I can't even remember my life when I could do alot of these things.Most people really can't understand how much we hurt and how exhausted we are especially if we look reasonably healthy. My doctor always greets me with a big "HI, HOW ARE YOU DOING? YOU LOOK GOOD"I just want to slap her and say,"Well I don't feel good".Am I suppose to look like a monster to prove I am not feelin well?? For me that is one of the last things I got to hold on to.Next month I'll be 43yrs old, but I admit I look younger while feeling way older. I actually got carded the other day in the liquor store. It made me laugh cause I think the clerk should've put on her specks.
