Today started out as a not too bad day for me with regards to feeling overwhelmed and 'down'. However, my afternoon quickly cancelled out my relatively uneventful, not-so-stressful morning, and with it my pain level has gone up the scale. My mother called me up with a rundown of all the things she needs me to do. That alone is enough to drive my stress level up and off the scale because I'm the only one who does for my mother and I just can't keep pushing myself physically to meet ALL her demands. I just get exhausted and downhearted just thinking about everything my mother wants done and it all falls upon my shoulders. Nobody else helps her out. Sure, acquaintances and the occasional extended relative drop by to visit her - when it's convenient - but other than that the buck stops with me and it's getting to me. It's getting me down and it doesn't help my level of chronic pain at all.
