Yes, I feel somewhat the same as you. I only have one child at home now, but the other four contribute to the stress too, needing money, girlfriend problems, etc. I have done many things, talked to my husband, printed out info, the whole spoon theory and truly, he says he understands, but he doesn't.He does want me to rest, but what he doesn't do is pick up any of the slack, like laundry, cooking, shopping, all the things we do as women and mom's. and then I am exhausted. I am like you, I could stay in bed all day, but take it as a blessing that you do get up and do things. I think that is better for you. Can you take a nap each day? I have found that if I lay down, whether I fall asleep or not, I am more able to face the rest of my day, like dinner...etc...
VC and DGG men have one goal and your not telling them enough to help them understand what your going threw.
Yes! And I'm not even married or living with my BF. My pain & fatigue are all over the board and don't seem to relate to exercise level, foods, or anything else that affects a lot of people. That said, I have made one correlation - my BF usually comes down Sat night and stays til Tuesday morning. My fatigue, pain and mood usually crashes Tuesday and Wednesday, and sometimes into Thursday. By Thursday evening I'm usually doing pretty good, and even if my pain is high, my coping with it is much easier. Then the whole cycle starts again w/the weekend.
He is trying to understand the fibro, but its just not working out very well. There are other issues between us as well (of course lol).
I don't have any great words of wisdom, but you are not alone!
