How do you keep trucking along when you feel so miserable?
Seriously. I'm on day 2 of my cycle (which is by far my worst day for cramps), as well as i'm on day 3 of this illness which so far is the worst day yet! i feel like i'm dying. i'm achy, my throat hurts, i'm crampy, my head feels like its swimming, i'm congested, i have a cough, and i think i'm starting to chill. (i cant seem to get warm---very unusual for me!)
I think of all of those expectant moms out there. First time mommies who are dealing with morning sickness all the time.
Or about the mommies in their second or third or more pregnancy. How in the world do you keep going and keeping up with your other kids when you feel miserable?
I think about my mom. She had her first 2 kids within between 2 and 2.5 years of another. Then my oldest brother got sick and became physically and mentally disabled. She not only dealt with that AND a toddler---but then proceeded to get pregnant again (only to miscarry) and then 6 years after my next oldest brother-- have me! while still dealing with my oldest brother's medical issues and a rambunctious 6 year old. AND THEN 8 years after me she had my baby brother. While dealing with all of that, but also a couple of TEENAGER BOYS and their mischief and sport practices and all of my only girl whining and attention needing and music lessons and softball games.
Bless her heart.
You all are an inspiration to me.
Gold medals and stars for all of you!
