Feeling Sorry for Myself!

Today is officially the first day of the summer holidays, for us. 

What am I doing?

Feeling sorry for myself!!

Me and the eldest have got, what I call, *time out* colds. You know, you never stop, day to day. Then suddenly you do, and it's like your body goes...................'okay, I can be ill now!'

It's not like I'm really ill, just months of running around, caring for others, has caught up. Also knowing that I won't get out much, has added to it. 

The 'leaving the house' problem has got a little better. The teen is more social than he's been in years. The tween has already gone out with friends once, and is asking to go again, obviously I said yes! I'm as pleased as punch he's getting out!

Little A has managed, around, 2 hours in total, in the back garden, over the weekend! This is a huge thing for him, as normally he won't leave the house AT ALL.

I'm still sitting here, under a quilt, feeling full of self pity though. I've eaten a really fatty take-away, which I really need not to be doing. I missed Zumba last night, and won't be going tonight, because I feel crappy. I also know I won't be getting oiut much, and feel that people will judge me for it, which makes me feel REALLY guilty.

I know I shouldn't worry what others think, but I do. 

So don't feel sorry for me. I'm doing a good enough job of that, on my own.

  5. First, I love that even though you're feeling sorry for yourself you're reporting some pretty positive things!
    Second - why would people judge you for it? I totally get the "time out" cold thing - I get that too. The week after Samaire was ill, I spent an entire day in bed unable to move! Nobody can judge you; you spend all your time running around caring for others. You deserve a couple of days on the sofa watching afternoon movies and eating junk. Take care of yourself and come back fighting fit xx
