Day 10

Dear Wolfgang,

I’m struggling today. My joints hurt and I can’t seem to find any energy. As you get older, you’ll learn that sometimes Mummy gets more tired than the other mums.

There are days when chronic illness kicks my butt. Then there are times when I can manage pretty well, but the battle with pain and fatigue can still be pretty tough. Even though I will always give you all my love, there will be days when I’m in too much pain and need an extra rest while you hang out with Daddy. This worries me, but your daddy reassures me that it will just be your normal. I hope my illness can teach you about empathy as you grow up—I have to believe there are positives buried within the conditions I deal with.
