Have you heard of the Spoon Theory? Probably not... Unless you have a chronic illness. Here is a quick snippet that I found on Pinterest that explains it in a nutshell:here.
Anyway, where I was going wit this is, I suffer from Chronic Migraines. Some days there is little to no pain and I'm great. Full of energy and ready to take on the world! These are the days I try to get as much for GAs, Children's Church, and my family done. I'm running and crazy and loving every minute of it.... And then there are days where I can not get out of bed. Where sounds, breathing, and even light make my head feel like it will explode! These are the days where it takes every ounce of my will and strength to take care of myself and the kids... And forget doing anything else!
Sometimes getting sick to my stomach helps, others it doesn't. Often the migraines make me unable to sleep and extremely forgetful. I loose track of my thoughts often and am in a bit of a "brain fog". It's incredibly frustrating to know that just walking HEB to do our weekly shopping wears me out. I'm 30 years old, not 80!
What really hurts the most though? On my worst days I feel so alone. There aren't many people who truly understand what I am going through and there are even some who don't care. They don't want to try to help. They just want to rub in their "normal" lives. I don't know if they do it intentionally, but it sure feels that way.
I just wanted to come and vent but, let's be real. I have a migraine right now and the light of my laptop is making it worse...
