I'm ranting, not complaining - I think

During one of my attempts at napping today it came to me that I have been sick now for three consecutive weeks. Not just a couple of days.

I fought hard with DH about this. To the point that hurtful things got said and an ultimatum was thrown. DH caught much hell for that last part, cause he did it.

I have not been in contact with my friends. I'm sure that you all believe me to be avoiding you or something.

Yes, I am. But only so that YOU don't catch whatever it is that I may have. Neither you nor your children nor your families need this.

Once I can get this crap out of my system - and fingers are so crossed that is soon - then I will resurface and contact you. Promise!

The only person I have spoken to in my friendship circle was Dita this past Friday. She can tell you that during our conversation my voice started to weaken and I got quieter and quieter as I spoke. She knows that it was an effort on my part to even make the call.

My only complaint is that I do not have someone who can run the kiddlings for me to and from school so that I can rest.

So I take my rest as it comes. When I only have one child, or when they can show me that they will entertain themselves.

Unfortuately, Friday, BBK decided that it was time to play in the bathroom sink and soak the bathroom, the hall, her bedroom and herself. ARGH.

Oh, and one person HAS caught this crap from me - my mom. The poor thing!

And as lluna_girl discovered and wrote about - you can't just take care of you - when you are a parent, everyone else becomes your first priority - to the exclusion of even your own illnesses. Except that all my life I have put other people first. Which is why I pointed a finger at you Terri dear and laughed. Cause I totally understand where you are coming from when you say you're like this too.

So, I'm off to lie down on the couch, at an angle where I can keep my eyes on my children (and the bathroom to prevent further watering episodes).

You also
are sick with a compromised immune system.
It will take you longer to get better because of the stress.

Re: You also
We know you are unable - because right after the interviews BOOM - you are sick.
Coincidence ?????

it will take you another 4 weeks to get all the way better - unless you totally relapse.

Re: You also
Just cause WE know it, doesn't mean that SSA will accept it until I've been out of work that long.

I've been starting to feel better then relapsing repeatedly these past three weeks.

It took Papaw over 8 weeks to get better. I think I got this from him.

Only dif between him and me is that he has the choice and ability to remain home and take naps whenever.

My house is a wreck. There are no clean jeans to be found for CJM and that kid has more jeans than anyone in this house. So...off to NOT rest and do house work.
