My kids are 10 and 12, and although my boy rarely even notices it when I'm sick (although I'm sure he does but he is just so easy going and very sweet), my daugther not only notices but has such a hard time with it. Especially when I'm in a flare up and can't do anything with her or take her anywhere. Granted she is at that age where it's all about her, all of the time, but I feel bad enough most days, and especially about not being "healthy" for her, but at the same time, I feel frustrated and a little mad about it, because it's hard enough just to feel like shit most of the time (pardon the word "shit" but I'm afraid that word comes to mind to best describe it). I still do all the things that absolutley have to get done, and many days I do things I would rather not, but to appease. Of course, my husband gets frustrated too, especially when I'm in a flare up, but that's another discussion. Sometimes I feel like I just want to be left alone, and although I am so blessed to have my great husband and great kids, it also makes fibro even that more challenging. Just needing to vent my friends. Thanks:).
