Now anyone who's read my posts or follows me on Instagram would know I'm a 'suck it up and deal with it'... 'Look for the positives', 'play the hand you're dealt' type of person.
But tonight - I'm feeling really sorry for myself. I'm in pain after my surgery and nothing is combating it. I think I need to go to the doctor as I've only been using over the counter meds cos it hasn't been too painful until recently.
I can't even swallow without it aching through my entire mouth so you can imagine the pain and frustration I've felt tonight looking after my boys, doing homework and getting them to bed.
Tonight I'm not enjoying being a single mummy. I want someone to look after me I've been surviving on around 4 hours sleep a night for about 2 weeks now since my surgery and it's starting to beat me down.
Anyhoo - this isn't normally the spirit I post in. I like to be upbeat and soldier on ... But tonight I'm just licking my wounds so to speak.
Feel free to share if you need a safe place as well.
Thanks for reading my sooky la la post.

The pain you're in sounds excruciating! I wish I lived next door, I'd feed you soup laced with panadeine forte and tuck you into bed for a big sleep.
I hope you can get to the dr asap and get some better pain management happening xx

Thanks for replying ladies. I know I'm my own worst enemy in terms of resting etc. I'm such a multi tasker that I don't think I actually have the ability to just sit. I can't even watch a TV show without folding washing/cooking/marking school work at the same time. I really need to learn to relax :/
