Doeyed wrote this in one of her post. It struck me hard today. It made me stop........really caught, on pause button, stopped. I wanted to really read that again. Her perfect rant and why they are good for all of us.
Read this and then response if you care to. How did it reach you?
I also think they should document the endless problems people have with work after they are diagnosed with RLS. And they ought to photograph people's houses inside before and after RLS... I happen to have those photographs, and when I first found the older one, I cried and cried. I could not believe how beautiful my home once was. Of course, I have back problems, too. And I've gone a little crazy, too. But I also have RLS.
Yup, The picture before RLS had really taken a good bite out of me. I have asked myself that very wuuestion far too many times. It's not a good path to let your brain go, even though some days it just does.
For the most part I am a blessed and happy person. However, I need sleep, the new eyes it gives to a day. I do smile alot, even at home my furry family bring me much joy and sanity.
Yes, I have pain/wish to have the longest nails to reach that place, everyday and it builds through out the day, that is what it is in my life. At my stage of education and experience, I deal with it most of the time. Or it's an issue that is in the fore front, but is managed.
However, I so totally understanf thr unknoen butdrn you were feeling when you wrote it. It echoed through my head and I knew it.
Its been a nbig coupkle of yrs for my body, not much of it good. I have made promises and will fulfill them, but they stand in line....but at what price?
The picture of my life before the RLS grips got to tight to ignore or soothe away. I'd love to see that.
I would cry. My husband and I married (13 yrs ago) and 6 months later I broke my leg and changed our lives.
I was near lifeless at times and I know it. I understand not being able to do the most simply of tasks and crying my eye out.
A great regret in my own heart, my sweet man had married a lively, happy, smart woman. How much has so honestly changed?
Again I'm blessed, he is a one of a kind and all mine. He's proactive with my doc and my treatment, maybe better than just support, hes a small army.
I liked the comment idea and see, a good rnat can bring on something missing in our paths or matbe they are there to.
Hugs and just like the topic.
