So my partner an obsessive woodturner invited one of the best woodturners in the world to stay with us from Thursday night until Sunday morning. You couldn't have met a nicer man and very appreciative of all I did for him.
However I feel that after many years of being with my partner and me having fibromyalgia all of that time he would know that what he asked me to do was too much for me, but no.
I did plan ahead as much as possible by getting the bedroom ready at least two weeks in advance but it was the cooking and time spent on my feet that has put me to bed today.
Thursday was can you do us both a meal when we get in which I feel is fair enough. Friday can we have a barbecue and I've asked 6 others but he didn't tell me till late afternoon! I had no help as they were woodturning in the shed only breaking for lunch which I had prepared!
Saturday night I was hoping that we would go out for a meal but because 2 of his friends could not afford it I was the one who had to entertain and cook for six again !
I really feel undervalued and used. So now I'm the one in bed today because I couldn't sleep for the pain. My mother and father are the only ones who truly understand my limitations!
