How do you react when someone, who has kids, makes you feel guilty for being tired all the time, when you don't have kids. My children are grown and gone. It's just me, hubby, and 3 cats. I have CFS/FM and for some reason, I feel guilty when people talk about all the time they spend with their kids, and I have all the time in the world and can't do anything. I know I shouldn't feel this way, and no one is actually saying anything, but I still feel this underlying guilt. Like, if I have all this time, why don't I do more? More what, I don't know. I don't know if I'm making any sense...fibrofog. I just needed to get this off my chest. I thank you all for listening. Like I said, no one is actually saying anything. It's ME thinking this. It's all in my head...negative self-talk. Thanks again. God Bless.
