I am not able to do simple chores. I cannot vacuum. I cant do simple hygiene tasks without help. I have to go to my
Mothers house to take a shower because I cant get in our tub without hurting myself. It affects every area of my life. I feel less of a person. I cant even be a good mother to my children or be a good wife to my husband
I often feel like I would be better off dead than this non life I am living. I am worth more dear than alive....insurance. I am not suicidal or have a plan. Just a thought that entered my head.
