Yesterday was one of those days that I don’t like, self pity day. I am sure we have all had them and yesterday was my turn.
There is plenty to get done but ever felt like your not getting the support or help you need? That has been me, of late but more often at times. I think part of it is in some ways I live alone and I dont know how to do that. You know I am married but due to an accident a few years ago, the marriage died, in a lot of ways.
I have had to figure out stuff on my own. I am still figuring things out. It’s not been easy, we have become more like housemates with benefits, but some benefits are missing.
Trying to stay focused on the positives usually help but when I am trying to take care of me, and no one is paying attention is a little hard. I ask for the help and no one listens, that is the most frustrating part. I know what I need but solving the problem is the difficult part. I make due with next to nothing but people don’t get it.
I get tired, I just wish I had someone who would take care of me just once is awhile. I need to recharge my batteries also.
Is that asking too much?
