Overwhelmed

I am feeling overwhelmed today. I have ran errands all day. I come home and want to have a little while to just relax. This NEVER happens. Everyone is so dependent on me to take care of their needs. My husband has Multiple Myeloma Cancer. He sleeps so much. He wakes up, and is ready for me to make something to eat. I am happy to do this. I just get so tired. I do have 4 dogs, that I love and adore. My 4 legged babies bring joy to my life. If I could have one wish, right now, it would be for me to have just one day where I wouldn’t have to take care of anyone but myself. In my situation a wish like this would be so hard to get! I am still thankful that I am able to do what I do.

Living with Multiple Sclerosis

Why is so hard for people to understand that I have an illness. Just because I don’t look like I have anything wrong with me, I do. I get tired in the afternoon. When I tell people I have MS and sometimes feel worse than other times. They always respond, by saying, I know what you mean, I get tired also. They cannot seem to understand this is a different kind of tired. When I try to explain, it seems to fall on deaf ears! How do I get people to understand this is a real illness?
