Why weekends are the worst

Everyone looks forward to the weekend, right? The weekend can be a double edge sword for individuals suffering from chronic illness.

#weekend - TopicsWithPassion.blogI’m not faking being sick. I’ve been faking being well. It may look like I have my life in order, but it’s far from the truth. You wouldn’t ever guess I have suicidal tendencies.

I get to the weekend and all of that energy and effort to fake being well falls and all the pain that I’ve been pushing down comes out with a vengeance. I pass most of my weekend sleeping and resting. I’m so exhausted. The pain and inflammation is so bad I can barely move.

It’s one of the things that frustrates me the most. I am using all my energy to get through the work week, that I have none left for family.
