Today I am having another bad day. Darryn woke up with a headache this morning and is in a bad mood. I don't seem to be able to cope with it when he gets like this and it seems he is more often in a bad mood more often that not these days. I know he has a lot of worry and I should be able to support him on these days. Why can't I keep it together for him. I think its because I have had so much sadness in my life and my health is not very good these days with having fibromyalgia, arthritis and constant pain in my neck. I makes it hard for me to be strong for him and it upsets me that I can't stay strong. That is my problem today I think, he got up feeling like crap and so did I but I couldn't bring myself to tell him I felt just as bad as he did. Anyway, I have to go send my Mum an email. She is in hospital and I am not up to visiting or ever calling her so I will opt for an email. 🙂 I love internet, I can smile even when its the last thing I can bring myself to do. 🙂

Hi Geraldine I understand what you mean....sometimes the bad days outweigh the good. One thing I have learned as a carer....if you don't look after your health both physically and mentally how can you support your partner. You need to take some time out whether it is a couple of hours or a whole day. Maybe have a coffee with friends, go to a movie....do something for yourself, just have some downtime. Sending a big (HUG) your way!! Denise
