Could somebody give me a kick up the backside please? I seem to be falling into a deep cavern of self pity. I don’t feel that I have anyone I can talk to as I don’t want to upset them (bore them to death more like). I’ve been struggling to sleep well, spasms in legs waking me up and taking ages to stop. I’m pretty sure that’s one reason why I’m upset. I’ve tried baclofen but it makes me feel spaced during the day.
I’ve been struggling to chat well recently. I have about an hours conversation in me with people I’ve not seen in a while and then I’m spent. I struggle to think of words that I want to say and my husband has now started filling in the ‘blanks’ for me which makes me feel like I’ve got dementia (please don’t anyone be offended).
ive been married 15 years and conversation with my hubby is now pretty limited, mostly talking about our kids and not much more than that. I just don’t seem to have any conversation to give? There are support groups around and I attend one which is pleasant enough but I can’t quite accept that I’m one of them and not a normal healthy person anymore. I visited my aunts recently, she commented that she knows someone with ME and she thought she was no way as poorly as I am. Am I that bad? I still walk, I swim well, how does it come across that im so ‘poorly’. We are going on holiday soon and there are nine of us going so we are taking two cars. It’s a four hour drive and most of the time I feel like I could drive half of it but no one else in my family think I can, am I that bad!? It’s like I’ve been shelved.
