We know we are not considered a burden by our families but sadly we often do, it is the sigh in your voice or see the roll of your eyes or just a look may come over your face. These things tell us you really don't want to do something we have asked. So we feel we are asking too much and putting you out. Our feelings are real we can help feeling the way we are at that time
This is directed towards my daughters, my husband and my siblings not because they do or say anything intentional to upset either myself or my mum but unfortunately this is how we often feel.
I like my mum have terrific kids who do a lot for us but still at times we feel like we are asking too much.
In my head mum's problems are understandable as she is 80yrs old now. However, I am only 57 and in worse state then mum,well that's how I feel at times. I am unable to do so much like even shower myself.
Life is hard but we still keep on trying and getting up each morning trying to dress myself and face the day and I do this day after day.
