Before I even opened my eyes this morning, my heart was raceing, my stomach churning and my head hurting. I feel really nervous my head still hurts, I've done some jobs in the house this morning. I feel a little better, not much, but a little. Why is this happening to me, I used to burst with confidence, but, my family started telling me I was the weak one, that I would die before my parents, they are now dead, but it was them that said it. I was the one that couldnt cope, gradually over years I think I began to believe it. And now I am left in a nervous state, I also have emma who wasnt supposed to make one year old but is now 23 with non visible disabilities which are life limiting, it all gets too much on times, I have few friends, one really good one, today I feel awful.
