Just fancy a rant!!!!

It's definitely one of those days!! I hurt from my toes to my head and stroppy teenagers are just adding to my stress...I try and push myself as much as I can but honest to god sometimes I think because I do try the people closest too me think when I say I'm struggling they think I'm exaggerating or making excuses!!! I know everyone here understands just how dibilitating this horrible illness is, it's blighted my life for 28years but today it's really got to me!! I'm waiting for hear the outcome of my Atos home visit which I don't think is helping matters either so for me today is a bad day!! Sorry for the rant but I've retreated to my bedroom so I'm out of the way and writing on here as there is no way I would write this anywhere else.. Hope everyone else is having a better day than me so gentle hugs to you all xxx

Hi Kiera,

You have given yourself a couple of answers here: stop pushing yourself, and let the stroppy teens wait on themselves - it will keep them out of mischief.

You might even be able to persuade them to wait on you, if the wind is blowing in the right direction! :D

Don't worry one little bit if people infer that you are exaggerating or making excuses - that's their problem, not yours. so retreat to your bedroom and let 'em get on with it.

Hope the ATOS thing works out - that's an iniquitous system if ever there was one!

Chin up, girl!

Gentle hugs for you. Time to let those teenagers take on a bit more responsibility for themselves and for you to spend more time looking after your own and relaxation for starters.




I agree with the others, get those teens to pull their weight. It may be hard to start with but don't give in and from experience, I know it works. It is also that old statement - learn to pace. Cut out things that don't really need doing and keep time for yourself, lock yourself in bathroom for a lovely soak, retreat more to the bedroom if your feel upset. I do hope your stress gets resolved at least some of it. All this form filling and being questioned on extent of your poor health doesn't help.

Gentle hugs.


Thank you everyone, it's another bad day pain and muscle spasm wise but house is much calmer at the moment so as far as i'm concerned its a better day xx
