i am 52 years old and have been sick since i was 28 with crohns and then hep c and then one thing after another and now fibro and arthritis since like earlly ninetys or so... anyway mom comes here to live after katrina ruined her place and she wants me to take her here and there... like i am just a ball of energy... grrr!!! i tell her over and over that i can maybe- do one big thing a day, and thats it, and not go here and there like she wants... so today i get up my energy and go walking with me and dog in woods, very private ahhhh!!! and lovely and come back to hear, '' well you sure seem to have energy to do more than one thing a day when 'you' want to...''... well! we all know that feeling dont we? another knife stuck in the back by a family member. i am sooo beyond tired of it. i wonder- and yes, it sounds alful... but would many of us be in better health- if we wasnt around family members allll the time? even my own sis and dh throws stuff up to me. . i am sick of crying and sick of being upset and sick of them treating me like i am a liar or dope addict. but of course.. they all say that they really believe that i am sick when i ask.. HA!!! what a lie there. im sorry everyone... it just boiled over and i had to come see you all tonight.
