Everyday’s a battle

And today I lost the battle, but I’m not ready to lose the war.

I’ve been in bed most of the day so far. My headache is outrageous. I took 1,000 mg of ibuprofen, and that made the pain slightly more bearable, but I still can’t function normally.

Thank goodness my kids are amazing. They’ve been quietly entertaining themselves all day. I made them some lunch, but that’s as useful as I got. This was the last day of the holiday break from school that I have with them, and I’d planned to take them somewhere fun, but the pain decided differently. I’m just glad I didn’t promise the kids anything beforehand. I guess I’ve learned my lesson on that one.

I hate this. Hate isn’t even the correct term… I despise, maybe? I don’t know, but I just want to live my life happily, and give my kids the attention they deserve.

  1. Hang in there! I had my worst parenting moment last night when I couldn’t even stand up. My daughter cut her finger with a knife trying to make her dinner. All I could do was cry. It’s times like this for both of us that make us filled with anxiety.

  2. My thoughts are with you. Although I do not have your particular issue, I feel that I kind of know how you feel.

    You may have lost that battle, but the war isn’t over yet.
