Ramblings of a painfully tired mom
Today I got a brilliant advice from a coach. After being told that I looked horrible (thank you for that btw, wasn’t aware of that when I saw my face in the mirror) , he told me not to forget to take a break once in a while.
How do you take a break from being a mom, a chronic pain patient?
I have yet to figure this out.
I know they mean well, but it’s so frustrating. Like if I don’t know, I should take some time to myself. But my kids are my lifeline and my downfall. I just can’t find the balance yet. So I asked his advice on that (trying to be proactive). But apparently the best advice he could muster, was finding a hobby or taking up a sport.
Hmmmm, …. sport you say, …. you do realize that I’m in pain like, … always?(I have tried yoga and swimming) I’d been happy if he’d said : I don’t know , maybe I could talk to some of my colleagues who have children, see if they have experiences that could be of use!
Anyway, made an appointment with the doctor to see if I can change some of my medication to fight the symptoms, so I can relax my muscles a bit and then,…
a do over?
I feel rather frustrated, …. again!
with love (and frustration)
