    Marc's pretty low actually. It's a bit of a struggle atm.
    Splints at night are still odd, but I'm getting used to them - although apparently I move my hands a lot at night as I've rubbed off most of the decorations that Hazel covered them in!!!!
    However, my wrists and hands are now more achy in the morning. I'm doing my exercises though, so that's probably contributing.
    I've got Fern's GCSE options next week! It just doesn't feel real.

    I'm struggling with a few things atm and I'm feeling a little weighed down with it all itms?
    I did the letter for the MR for a friend of ours on Tuesday and it was so hard. I've known her for almost 20 years but having to ask her about all the intimate stuff was so hard, as was hearing that the experimental surgery she had to rebuild discs in her neck is failing and she's pretty much lost most of the feeling below her neck and she knows she'll end up completely wheelchair bound due to the issues in her neck was so hard.... She's slipping fast and I can't fix it....

    My Mum has heart issues and she was told last year that she had 18 months at best unless she has surgery. They have agreed to give her the surgery, but only if she fights and loses weight etc... So now she keeps telling everyone - including my sisters kids (who lost their dad and granddad within 3 months of each other 10 years ago) that she could be dead before last christmas, now before her birthday at the end of this month - same day as Ben. I've told her that she is not going to overshadow his 18th with that... But it's tough. She spends as much time as she can in bed and on Monday when I spoke to her at 11 she was still in her nighty and was 3/4 the way through a large packet of chocolate digestives...... Previously to that my little bro spoke to her and she was 1/2 way through a box of chocolates that she "had to have"... I just don't know what else I can do, but have my little sis and bro asking me to help motivate her and call her most days = which I do anyway, but haven't since Monday as I just haven't had the time...

    There's no fix to anything that's up itms? I've decided to cancel F's eye test this evening as I'm just too low on spoons to take her....
    Please always remember that I am always right. I have a framed certificate to prove it.

    When in doubt, stop and think... WWSS? (What Would Suzi Say?)

    As hard as it is, if your mum won't help herself then there's not a lot any of you can do. Can you do rest today?

    That is rough. But like Jaquaia said. If she does not help herself then all the other help won't make a big enough difference. But then saying all the things she is telling the kids is harsh too.

    Dont know what else to say other then

    Sweetheart, you cant fix everything, no matter how incredibly awesome you are . Thank you, though, for realising the eye test was a step too far
    When all else fails, use glitter instead

    Thanks everyone. I actually feel better getting it out of my head. I had a lovely surprise visit from Stella today who bought me a gift. She'd made me a box frame with a certificate that I am always right in it! It made me laugh so much.

    Am pacing...

    OK, am listening to my body and I've overdone it with my wrists today, so they are really sore and typing is really sore, so I'm off to do some self care... See you in the morning...
