Motherly Matyrdoms

I took my beloved and full-of-flu G to the doctor today, and then muscled in on his appointment to have my own chest checked out - surely, the stabbing pain/agony I've been getting when coughing and moving around is muscular, right?
I was so relieved to hear the doctor's diagnosis I started crying - bronchitis, chest infection and pleurisy! Wow! There's a reason I have been feeling so crappy. I now have permission to feel as lousy as I have been feeling! And I don't have to feel guilty about not doing everything that needs to be done!!
Another case of the Motherly Matyrdoms diagnosed and treated.
And now I'm back off to bed.

  1. Sam - sorry, but I've just read your post. You poor thing, hopefully you are well on the mend now. Yes we all suffer from matrydom at times. Take care. cheers Wendy

  2. You poor thing - and I haven't seen you in so long I didn't even know you were unwell. I sympathise big time, having had pleurisy myself many years ago. Do hope you're all recovered by now.
