I am sure some single moms can relate to this. The morning you wake up feeling sick as a dog and just want to stay in the bed all day BUT…YOU CAN’T!!!! It is what comes along with being a single mommy. I can’t lie….I have a strong desire to have a great man that will be a great helpmate and step up during times like this to take care of the daily needs. It can be so hard sometimes.
Yesterday, I woke up about 3 AM dripping sweat and my throat felt like it was on fire. I tried to take some medicine and go back to sleep but failed. Thank God I have a caring boss who I called at 5AM in the morning to say “I can’t make it in today”. She even asked if I needed anything. What a blessing.
I laid down for another hour and then got up to take my daughter to school. That’s when the fun began. I couldn’t stop going to the bathroom. I was completely dehydrated. The night before I hadn’t even eaten because I wasn’t feeling well. But I still had to cook her breakfast…still had to pack her lunch…still had to drive her to school. I was just happy that she was feeling better because a few days before she wasn’t feeling to well.
I ended up going to the hospital up the street later yesterday only to sit in a hospital bed with an IV for about a half our. They gave me a steriod too. Afterwards I considered playing in the Texans game!!! LOL!!
I tried to rest a little while as was at home and Alani was at school but you know how that goes. I ended up washing the dishes…cleaning the sheets and wiping down the whole house with anti-bacterial spray. I am a Germa-Phobe FYI! I did take a nap eventually and ate some soup, drank some tea and OJ!!
It’s a tough job but someone has to do it. I yearn for the day that I don’t have to do it alone. Until then…we keep pushing! SINGLE MOMMAS STAND UP!!!
**I feel much better by the way! :)
