Dear Kathy & Michelle,
I have been reading your all's posts the past week or so. Both of you seem like such sweet folks.
Is their a possibility that you would mind being my friend?
I have been a member of Spark since April of this year. But since August I have been on Spark very little. August 27th I lost my mom, now I have only my husband, children & brother.
I was already depressed when she passed away, but since then the depression on a lot of days has been almost unbearable.
Just this past year I have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgea (sorry about spelling), Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, migraine headaches, Scoliosis and Osteoarthritis. The depression I have been dealing with on/off for years but it has really intensified this past year.
I take care of my physically disabled husband & mentally challenged daughter 24/7, with only a 10 hour a week break. I use that time to go to my doctor appointments and/or do grocery shopping. Very, very little time (if any) to myself.
I enjoy being on my computer, reading, going to church and crocheting. But I do not get to do much of any of those things.
On most days, it is a major struggle just for me to pull myself out of bed and get dressed. So to do everything else that I do is done because I am FORCING myself to do it.
I sleep very little, don't get much rest, am ALWAYS tired and often fight being sleepy. I am SO SICK of always being tired/exhausted and having to fight just to get everyday simple things done. I am only 48, but on most days feel like I am a hundred!!
Well I guess that I will close here. It is time to get my husband up out of bed, dressed and fed. He has a doctor's appointment a 2 hour drive away today. And as usual, I am exhausted before I even get started.
I hope you all will have a wonderfully blessed day, and that you would not mind being my friend.
