My youngest daughter has been home for a few days. Yesterday she asked her dad and me if we were coming down to Edinburgh to see her in March. I said no because of the effort It takes to get there and I’m just not up to it just now. She said to me mum you really should make more effort there are lots of people out there whose level of disability is a lot worse.
Now I still work 3 days a week but don’t have a lot of energy on my days off for other things but I try my best and I hate to think other people don’t think I’m trying hard enough.
Her comment has made me think I am not pushing myself hard enough and I am getting lazy.
My daughter is at uni but she has worked in a Sue Ryder centre and has cared for people with MS so she does know a bit about the condition.
Its been annoying me since she said it.
