I was about to drive back home from visiting my cousin. I haven't spent time with her in years and I was with her for a few days down in NC. I've always looked up to her, so leaving was really hard, and who knows when I'll get to see her again. I was also driving by myself with my 2 kids (5 and 9mos). It was my first road trip on my own. I was terrified of the 15 hour drive with a stop in the middle, finding a hotel myself, blah blah blah. I'm a very dependent person so to do it all on my own was huge.
yesterday :( I have strep really REALLY bad and my lymph nods are so swollen that my ears hurt so fricken bad, then I cried worse when I tried to call in and my boss told me if I wasn't there then I had no job... Needless to say I went to work :(
A few days ago. I cried for my mother. She has been through so much in the last several years. Her health has been going downhill, and she has gotten her life together. Her job is what has given her the power to keep going everyday. I think that is because it gives her something to do. Well, she got fired from her job. She doesn't know what to do with her life.
A couple nights ago, I was dealing with major tethered cord pain, with resulting leg spasms. It was absolutely excrutiating, and I ended up screaming and crying into my pillow. I took some aspirin (only OTC med that helps it for me), and it did absolutely nothing. I ended up not getting to sleep until about 3 a.m. because of the pain.
