  1. I could really relate to that post. Except, I usually do admit those things privately. I know it. My husband knows it. In public though, or even around friends, I am as stoic as can be. But even that is tiring and can drain me further. And again, I know that and admit that privately. But never to other folks.

  2. A good “window” into some of the areas of pain most folk don’t think about. Everyone’s condition, capabilities, mental and physical landscape make for unique experiences, and to differing extents (even from day to day). Understanding and acceptance can be hard enough when we look at ourselves so adding in the expectations of others, even more so. All that being said, we have to admit how we are feeling, unilaterally, as part of understanding our own ongoing capability and recovery. From where we’ve come from, to where we want to get to, we need every available resource at our disposal to make that as smooth and as productive as possible, part of which is being able to talk openly about how we are, which is the first part of moving forwards, and if those that listen can help, even if that is in helping us understand ourselves, then it makes it even more worthwhile.
