Same feelings

Hello Ali,
Of course you know I feel your are a main backbone of this forum and I don’t want to put too much stress on you but this is a terrific thread. I know you have heard about my family in turmoil. I’m folding clothes with weights on my wrists . This is a therapy that was invented by my family. All the clothes and clutter thats around the house seems to be “Mine” because “they” all have other things to do. I did some yard work and was prunning a climbing rose that had been mentioned it needed to be cut back. I procedded to give it a limb cut and left all the main branches but when I turned around my Wife was standing there just bawling her eyes out. I asked what was wrong and she said she didn’t mean to cut it that much. It just seems as if they would only understand or try to educate just a little of the basics and some of the communication skills needed in this “disease” we could all learn to cope better. Right now there are dishes to be put up and reloaded, clothes to be folded and more to be washed & dried, childrens toys to be picked up and floor swept, leaf blower to be used on the deck then the mower put up with the blower, go to the bank and make deposit,come back and organize EOB’s to verify there were drugs bought with flex spending account,get the program set up for IVig plan to help with it, go to the Dr.’s office and get a form filled out and sent in to help with extended coverage on my insurance…… But you know what? I look fine! I never was a lazy person and still am not but when I get all of this done it will take it’s toll on me and then it will be the why are you so moody or grouchy, why won’t you get up and do something it will make you feel better! Ali your one of the most tireless and careing people I’ve ever had the chance to know. Even though your body and mind is exausted your still doing work for this GBS family. you deserve a Great Big Squeeze
