I've been in bed on and off for the last 4 months, had a good spell a couple of weeks ago when I first started takin gabapentin but that soon went away, now i'm back in bed with the worst fatigue I've ever had, seems to get even worse with every flare I have, I've noticed I've gotten much worse since my daughter and granddaughter moved back in with me when she split from her boyfriend in January this year.
I was doing great with the pacing myself and resting when my body told me to but my daughter is very lazy, shes a good mother but terrible at cleaning up after herself and baby so its left to me, shes also a typical teenage gobs****! which is stressing me out, if i mention anything about cleaning up after herself she goes off on one about coping with the baby and shes not always got time (she seems to think ive never had kids and a home I had to clean) so probly something to do with stress from that and feeling like my home isn't mine anymore.
I'm struggling badly to keep up with the housework because as soon as I've cleaned she wrecks it within minutes, my house never looks tidy anymore, she doesn't understand how Fibro and M.E affect me and puts on me all the time, I've tried speaking to her but I just get "WOTEVER" and she storms off, she thinks I'm always having a go at her, I'm not I'm just trying to make her understand how her not helping me with the mess she makes puts me back in bed because I'm doing too much, might as well be talking to the wall she doesn't give a s&*t
Its so disheartening when I've struggled so hard to keep my house clean and tidy and then I come downstairs to find all my hard work ruined, i used to only clean a couple of times a week and potter around the rest of the time if I felt ok to but now I'm cleaning everyday and if I miss a day because I'm too tired or hurting its twice as hard to catch up with the day after.
I used to love doing things for my mum, she had her own business and didnt get home till 9pm so I used to make tea and clean the house for her and goto school or work and look after my horse, kids are so lazy and selfish these days.
I can't ask her to leave as she has nowhere to go and I couldn't do that anyway I'd feel guilty, so now I'm just waiting for her to get her own place which could be a while and dont know how I'm going to cope in the meantime, I know it sounds silly but its really beginning to get me down in the dumps.
