Super mom of chronic crap!
I deal with chronic pain and other illnesses that people don’t like to hear about. Mostly because they don’t truly understand it or they may have a friend that has a symptom but not actually the same thing. I’m not negative I’m just being honest.
So I’ll skip the big horse crap.
I had 3 MRI’s. One showed some white spots (with contrast), however it could be because I get migraines. I will have another one on October. I dislike MRI’s! If I don’t take anything prior I will have a panic attack! I get blood work often, needless to say I’m not scared of a needle. I’m on just enough pills that don’t make me feel insane – yet. I am in pain but I tend to deal with it. I never thought I could live fairly happy with what I have because of anxiety & depression can impact me.
My responsibility is to take care of her and taking care of her needs first. I should take care of me just enough to take care of her. Because of her I have a different outlook on life. She makes me strong! Which I never thought I could be!
I do ask for help if need & my daughter basically knows I’m always sick. She pretends to call the doctor on her phone, because mama does. She plays doctor often & I wish those pretend shots and those sweet kisses would cure me! I want her to know that I’m stronger than these diseases and I will do the best I can for her!
Any mama’s out there who changed how they lived bc of someone? As well if you have a little, what do you do now differently?
