"You sure are sick alot" You sure do feel crappy, achy..or what ever alot" "but you don't "LOOK" sick" I feel like I need a tatoo across my forhead that says..."Yes I know I dont LOOK sick but trust me I am" or something like that Why couldnt I have something that made me break out in horrible rash.. so it would be easier for people to believe how badly I feel? UGH Anyway as my user name says.. I am a mom of 3 dancers.. and well as such and esecailly now that I am no longer gainfully employeed.. I "work" at the studio to pay for classes.. cleaning, making phone calls, answering phones, altering and making costumes, helping w/ advertising and back stage, consessions, flowers, tickets, you name it I have done it to help off set the cost of all of those dance classes that my daughters all LOVE. But as much as I have said and asked for notice when they need me to do something...Yes I feel obligated to help .. especaily now w/ Nutcracker in a week.. BUT I just dont have the energy...I hurt .. but yet I still feel guilty and cant seem to say no!! But on that RARE occasion that I do say the dredded word (NO) I feel as if I am given the biggest guilt trip.. "But Shannon you know how much we "depend" on you at this time" I just want to scream!!!! I know that I am just venting now but !!!!!
