I wish to be a champion mother.
I’d love to have dinner on the table each night. To be able to get up early and not look lazy. In bed with an ice pack and another migraine.
My laundry would always be done. No waiting piles to be washed or folded. The house would be spotless, company ready. My dog would get a walk and I’d get some exercise.
instead its hard not to feel like a failure when you have chronic illnesses. You’re so fatigued everything is a burden. Shopping, visiting with friends. Luckily my family is very supportive and gives me lots of help. But still, I want to do it myself.
Champion? It’s more like loser.
