Why is it that when our children are sick we "baby" them and when we are sick we neglect to take care of ourselves. I got sick Friday and have been ignoring it. I just thought I can fight through this, I am the Mom, and Moms don't get sick. However last night was my breaking point. I couldn't move. My sweet hubby bathed the kids and let me lay on the couch (while I felt guilty for my behavior). I agreed with my mother that I needed to go the the Dr.
Yet, when I got up this morning and felt better than last night I convinced myself not to make the appointment. My mom told me to go anyway and I am glad I did.
I have a sinus infection, bronchitis, and the verge of two ear infections.
So, I am babying myself tonight and trying not to feel guilty. I am staying home from bible study (sniff) and watching a movie with the kiddos.
I am sure I would have been better by now if I would have just gone to the Dr. in the first place. I am just always scared that they are going to look at me and say "Sorry there is nothing wrong with you, but maybe you ARE crazy!"
