Netflix #Streamteam April

Wow, April already.

Easter is over, half term is all done and what a month it has been.

We were all SO poorly over half term. We had doctors visits and so many antibiotics to distribute. At times, I wondered if myself and Ben would survive.

Alas with the help of family we did.

Family and Netflix.

Netflix released so many epic kids films this month, from frozen, which was added for a couple of weeks, to rio 2, which is awesome because it is a family favourite.

Netflix kept us going this month, it brought a little bit of happiness with the family film love, and I think, kept us all sane.

But I Don’t Look Sick?!

I tend to find myself looking in the mirror and wondering if its all real. Its so odd because I just don’t look sick. Granted I look tired and the bags under my eyes are slowly turning into black bin bags but still, I don’t look sick.

People tend to forget hidden illnesses are equally as hard to grasp for the person who has it, as well as the passer by who simply doesn’t know better.

I find myself sitting and wondering whats going on in my head, I have been keeping myself busy because I know too much thinking can be bad, because thinking leads to wondering and wondering leads to all kinds of crazy shit!

I guess recently I have been feeling a  little low, I have so much to do, and I just cannot find the want to do it. But, at the same time I do want to do it?! Nah, I don’t get it either. 

I find it hard to express the way because “I’m tired” doesn’t cut it, but it seems to be my answer of choice. I guess no one really wants to hear that I have chronic fatigue and today, it hurts like hell.

Hey, I even tried to push myself this week, it was for personal gain as well as the family. I figured maybe I need to do more? Turns out doing more just makes things worse, it pushes you to that wall, the one you cannot go over ,under or through, so you just sit there sobbing and smelling like an old bag of potatoes. 

And lets face it, that’s not fun for anyone.

Its hard some days, not having someone who really understands. People try and I appreciate it, but some days you just want someone who feels that pain, who has hips and a bladder like yours, who understands MS and feels it too.

Some days you just feel so ‘meh’ like nothing is worth moving for, you just feel so empty.

I like to immerse myself into the girls, TV or the online world, so for a second I can take a step back from who I am and feel nothing for a while, but it is more of a something nothing as apposed to an empty nothing.

For me, by far the hardest part right now is looking in the mirror and feeling like a complete stranger. One who is not alone behind those eyes anymore, but at the same time, you just cannot see it.

My Stomach Turner

I was told I couldn’t possibly be any kind of mother because there is one thing I cannot stomach.

Some old bitch told me this.

I have to say I was not impressed.

So there is a few things us mothers have to deal with on a daily basis, there is no getting away from it.

Yes, bodily fluids.

There are many types of these vile things, however for the people who have been living under a rock since birth, I will post the more ‘popular’ ones.

First comes wee, pee, piss or urine, whatever you wish to call it it is the most common and frequent one we mothers deal with.

This one I am not adverse too, no this I can take by the bucket load (not in a literal sense)

Next comes poo, poop, crap, shit or faeces, again whatever you call it, at one time or another I have had this somewhere on my person.

Again not fussed by this either!

Next comes snot, bogeys, candles sticks, loogie or mucus, whichever word you use this one is also a big one. Most of my clothes have some form of it on them, whether wet or dry.

This one also does not phase me in the slightest, in-fact getting rid of this, out the nose of a small child, when dry, gives me great satisfaction (my own child, not yours)

Here comes the last one in my list, yup; sick, vom, puke or vomit. The ones is not a frequent as the others put still a biggie.

You guessed it, this one is my downfall, my stomach turner. This one is the one the old bitch criticised me about.

Now I am not talking baby sick, that is fine. I am talking full on bits of pizza, carrot or sweetcorn, the real “hard stuff” kind of puke. This I cannot stomach, I walk into the room and immediately turn around and flee the scene. God bless my husband. I cannot even stand my own!

So my question to you is, do you also have a stomach turner? I can’t be alone can I?

Can I?!
