In Reply to: Sorry Guys, Stewarat is having a pity party all by herself. posted by Stewart on October 09, 2000 at 18:29:54:

Hi Stewart,
My first reaction was to hit the back buttom on my screen and leave this one for someone else to answer. I was speechless...If you were crying because you just found out you needed to have surgery, or you are in so much physical pain, or even you ran out of pain meds and your pharmacy is closed :) I might have known what to say...I know though that it's hard to accept that I am not the way I was. I could do everything and anything before. I could put walls up, sand floors, carry a child on each hip, and mop at the same time. Even when I felt my back giving up to you think I stopped. Nooooo....I kept going like a deteriorating energizer bunny. It took a lot of pain, and suffering to learn and accept my limitations. (as well as years of therapy) It still is very hard for me to say "I can't do.." but I have people around me that remind me what my limitations are, and not that I am limited. I think theirs a big difference. I still do superwomans heroic acts every now and then, but I catch myself and slow down. I'm sorry your dad did not see your limitations, but some times Stewart, we do such a good job hiding it, that it's hard for any one to see, including ourselfs. I'm sorry I can't offer you much help or advise, but I can offer you my prayers and thoughts, and wish you strength to over come yet one more thing. This is part of healing I guess. Good Luck Stewart, and I know tomorrow will be a better day. Be well. Maria (Bos)
