Those three little words can at times make even the strongest person feel worthless.
My lower back and nerve pain has now forced me to take 3 weeks off work.
I am thankful that I can walk around, the pain is still there but its bareable. I still have trouble bathing myself and dressing myself at times so I’m still heavily relying on my husband to help me.
I feel worthless as my brain tells me I have to do everything on my to do list, but my body won’t allow me to do much at all. It is really frustrating as in many people’s opinions : “you don’t look sick.” That has to be one of the most challenging things to hear without letting it get to me. It is hard to ignore.
I feel bad enough as it is, but when that comment is directed at me, I feel so much worse.
My lack of income is hurting me financially too. It sucks.
I hate my kids seeing me like this. I should be a role model for them, I shouldn’t need them to help care for me at their young ages.
