Sometimes I feel like a wimp

I am sick. Again. And guess what? I cried in the doctor's office. I cried on the way to the pharmacy at midnight. I'm a mom. I should be strong and brave. But it's the middle of the night, and I am sure not feeling brave or strong. I'm feeling like I want to curl up in a ball and be mothered.

For someone who deals with chronic illness, I'm not a very good sick person.



  1. I could hear the "wah" and i laughed...sorry about that! :-) but i totally get you on the mommies shouldn't get sick bit. and yet, if we didn't, how would we know how to give that mothering succor we so desire when our own kids got sick? sure we got it from our mothers, but our memories are short and it's a great reminder to me about how far a little compassion and pampering can go.

    hope the modern medicine keeps helping things to improve!!

  2. Well, duh, yeah, of course, Gin. Good thoughts. But, of course, I've been too busy feeling sorry for myself to realize that this could help me be a better mother in the long run.

  3. I could copy and paste this and call it mine. I'm a pretty sad excuse for a chronically sick person.
