DO NOT I repeat DO NOT beat yourself up and feel guilty if you cannot go to an event or you cannot do this or do that. Sometimes you have to put your health first and being a people pleaser I’ve learned that the hard way sometimes. Take care of your body and health, and then once that is under control you can start worrying about everything else going on in your life. It’s OKAY to say you know what? Maybe I don’t have the energy to do this today. I’m going to rest all day.
I know you’re probably sitting there hurting inside because you wanted to go to that concert, or be there for this person, or do that for your mom (and trust me I’ve felt the guilt—it’s horrible—I’ve felt guilty to the point of breaking down in tears many, many times), but at the end of the day you have to be happy and healthy too. Pace yourself, rest when needed and preserve those precious spoons.
So… Pretty sad that things that used to be fun are now things that I dread. I’m supposed to be going to the State Fair tomorrow and my family wants to stay there all day long. My dad said probably 10 hours. Wait what….?! 10 hours?
Yeaaaah. So that happened. Lol Now I’m freaking out because I can hardly handle a few hours of just sitting up, so how in the world am I going to be walking around for 10 hours? I don’t know what I’m going to do but I’ll salt and fluid load, take some steroids and hope for the best… Hoping that I can just be there a short time and be dropped off somewhere for the remainder of the day so I can rest.
Being a spoonie sucks sometimes I was actually kind of looking forward to the fair until I realized it was probably going to completely drain me. Lol
Anybody else need a vacation??? I’ve literally been go-go-go since the end of August with art shows, projects, different events… I’m supposed to be going to the fair this Saturday but I haven’t done an all-day thing like that in forever… And I’m running on fumes even at this very moment. Isn’t it awful that we sometimes dread things that are supposed to be fun?? Makes me sad.. I used to have all the energy in the world.
So..Preparing for the worst.. I may just end up collapsing there lol…. :| Really really need some good rest one of these days. & I mean like weeks of good rest. Can I get an amen?? #BURNTOUT :(
Yes it is quite scary hearing that the 2nd nurse with ebola flew on a plane and now they have to track down all the people she came in contact with. My father is a pilot and is constantly shaking peoples’ hands (not knowing if they’ve recently sneezed into their hands, etc). He now wants to be more careful though he said.
I am just thankful that it was not with his company, it was with Frontier Airlines. Praying that it does not happen on his airline or anywhere else.
The spread of this has got to stop. Just a few people having it in our country is a few too many.
A healthcare worker at Presby now tested positive for Ebola; pretty bad how there’s so much possible exposure and schools closing from the man who first came here with it (exposure to his kids—his kids to other kids at school) a homeless man who rode in the ambulance after him, and yadda yadda. Now they probably will have to go track down whoever this health care worker might’ve exposed it to. Yes, the infected person has to basically be sneezing into the other person’s face or other contact with blood and bodily fluid—but it’s still pretty scary that there’s now a second case. Knew this was coming. The first man soiled every bed in the apartment here, threw up outside his apartments—bodily fluids everrrrrrywhere. Now a second case emerges..
Living in a predominantly Christian town, you would think growing up here and going to the schools here would be great. It was quite the opposite. The kids who attended church were the kids who actually judged people the hardest (hypocrisy isn’t it), which could give any kid a horrible perception of how to live a good Christian life. Even when you’re trying to live a good life people make up rumors that you’re doing horrid things, then you slip off the path because you decide having friends who do bad things but don’t judge you is better.
Let me make one thing clear: judging someone and criticizing and making up rumors is the farthest thing from being a Christian.
Is there no in between??? How can youth these days deal with such judgement and not crack under the pressure? And how can anyone gain faith if they’re constantly being judged by the ones who are supposed to be living good Christian lives? This would make anyone doubtful and turn away. I say home-school. My brother is very smart in doing this for his two little ones and I will most likely do the same when I have kids.
