My mother is always have a go at me for being tired. She call me pathetic when I struggle to get up in morning and get really annoyed when I sleep in the day. She have no sympathy for other people, especially me. I have narcolepsy, so sleep is big thing for me. She make my life very difficult sometimes.
Yep. I used to have ME/CFS. I would consider myself recovered but I have to pace myself and not overdo things iykwim. I had "friends" who used to say shit like that. I binned them. That is a pretty low thing to say about your child. Have you pulled her up on it?
Msube you would be happier if you didn't accept her offers of help and didn't talk to her about your tiredness? It's shit that she's not more supportive but if that's how she is then giving her a platform to have a go at you from is the worst thing you can do.
So sorry OP. I guess if she's over from Russia then she's staying with you and there's no respite either. Would she have the confidence to take your 3 year old out for some half day trips so you can rest at home?
Sounds like my mum. I get pip awarded and I’m told it’s alright for some being given free money for sitting on my arse. Never mind that I have spinal disabilities which cause me debilitating pain day in day out, as well as mh problems. Never mind that it will help pay for someone to do some of the things I can’t. Never mind it’ll give my dc and I a better quality of life and help us. Nope, apparently it’s free money and she resents me receiving it. Apparently the disabilities are in my head. It’s mind over matter doncha know. If I stopped feeling sorry for myself, my pain would miraculously disappear and I’d be able to walk normally and get a bloody job. Aye, alright love 🙄🙄
I have a dd with Narcolepsy. Have you had a meds review lately? A lot of meds with Narcolepsy tend to have a 'wear off' effect after a while. Sorry about your Mother. I never tell dd off for being tired. It's not her fault, it's not your fault.
