Does anyone ever feel completely alone? I mean the day to day pain and the effort it takes to be upbeat, excited about things, and keep the extent of the pain hidden from the kids (they don't need to know). I sometimes wish others would say, hey, sit down for a while, take a load off. Of course the pain makes you do sit down, but others only comment on why you sleep more lately, why can't you get everything done in a day and why can't you carry this or that. Wow, your strength has really diminished this year. I mean my husband knows of my problems, but it seems that after many years of this I would not have to explain it over and over and over to him. I mean where is the common sense? Gee, she is having a hard time carrying the laundry, it must be the fibroid or the endo, but that is never the first thing to enter his mind. It is always, why can't you do that? If I have to say it to my husband one more time I think I will scream! I wish he could look at me and say, wow, look at all she gets done in a day and still manages to smile, laugh and take care of the kids even though she is in constant pain. Just wondered if anyone else has these types of feelings.
