Last Day

So the new arthritis meds are a big fat FAIL.

I can't talk about it right now. I had no idea just how much hope I had riding on them, and I'm devastated. I want to be a good mom again, and I was *so* hoping that these meds would allow me to do that. It feels like my heart is breaking, and the tears won't stop. Briony deserves so much better than this.

I'll be strong again tomorrow. For today, I just really need to cry.

It's tough feeling like that! :o) Don't get yourself down! You might want to read this post written by a little girl with a mom who has lupus. It brought me to tears and made me feel so much better about being a mom with a chronic illness.

Oh, WOW. Thank you so much for sharing that. You weren't kidding about the Kleenex...

Awww, Lindsay, I'm so sorry to hear this. I've been getting a basic idea of what's happening through your statuses, but I didn't realize it quite so bad...you always put such a positive spin on things. I REALLY hope things get better soon. Briony doesn't need anything but you. You are an AMAZING mother who is parenting her better than most mothers who don't struggle with chronic illness. Thinking of you lots and lots (and secretly plotting an eventual visit to Winnipeg simply to see the trouble J&B would get into if put in the same room!)
