This morning seems to be one of those mornings

that the fear and gloom is rearing its head. I am

so tired of this, yet I know my story isn't nearly

what it is for some of you. The Lyme seems to

mess with my emotions. Part of me wants to avoid

looking at this website because it gets me

wondering what else I should be doing that I am

not. I know that part of what is going on is my

adrenals but to be honest, I feel like I am

chasing my tail some days. ONe thing starts to

feel better and something else takes its place. I

feel like I am not a good enough spouse or mother

but I just feel like I can't be what everyone

needs me to be. I feel angry with my doctor and

the other people that I pay so much money to see

and everyone seems to be telling me something

different and when am I going to be better -

that's what I want to know- where is my head!? I

guess this is mostly a rant. Thanks for

listening.

Dear Wenan,

I am sorry you are having such a bad start to your day. I have many of them.

Some days I question everything and seem to be mad at the world, while feeling guilty for not being the same Mom and Wife that I was before Lyme.

Please know you are not alone in your feelings. Mine eventually pass as I know I am doing the best job I can keeping everything together while being very ill.

Be nice to yourself. Treat yourself to something special. You do deserve it.

A good cry sometimes makes me feel better too.

I am sending you positive thoughts and prayers.

Hang in there.

Geneal

Geneal is right...have a good cry and then do something nice for yourself!

I'm sorry you're having such a rough time.

If you need to cry, I recommend hugging something--a cat, dog, person, or (my favorite) a giant plush animal.

I had the softest plush cat for over a year after my stint in the hospital. It comforted me in that hospital, and was perfect to snuggle with in treatment or on a really bad day.

If you are at all religious, pray.

Hoping for a better tomorrow,

Emily [group hug]
