Okay, so I've been sick before, but my family has always been able to help.
I live alone with my almost 3 y/o DS. I have the flu which includes a lovely sore throat, nausea and muscle cramps in my back that keep waking me up while i'm trying to sleep. I haven't found any medicine to make the cramping go away and I am so exhausted. I know this sounds petty and whiny but I really just don't know how to handle my child who has boundless energy while i feel so darn sick. (Yes i realize how pathetic i sound)
so, how do you other moms do it?
My mom, dad and sister all work full time now, and none of them have the time or energy to pitch in anymore which i totally understand, but it still sucks. my friends are all in college, married or single party animals or something that makes it so that they are not in a good position to help me.
and i hate, hate, hate asking for help from anyone other than family- maybe that's my problem.
anyway- how do you all cope when you are under the weather and nobody wants to/can help out? what do you do? i'm at my wits end, i was crying in the kitchen earlier cuz i'd tried going to the store to buy food and was too sick and in pain to get anything more than milk- so frustrating. so please, any great ideas? let me know!
