So...I've had some pretty crappy luck with my health this year. I've had 2 surgeries, been in physical therapy, and have been on several different meds.
My doctor has commented on my shitty health, which I don't mind. He's been really helpful and he doesn't think I'm crazy. family has been less than supportive. I don't expect my husband to bend to my every whim, but I would appreciate a little attention. I go to school 3 days a week for 7 1/2 hours a day. I take care of my son, who is almost 16 months old. I try to keep up on the housework as much as possible. I do everything I possibly can, but it doesn't seem like its enough.

My father-in-law says that if I was a work horse, they would have shot me years ago. I find this offensive. He didn't laugh when he said it. He was being 100% serious. He always has something negative or derogatory to say about me. Its not like I'm asking for all of these problems. I'm 22 years old and my health is worse than my 67 year old grandma.

I feel like I'm becoming a burden on my family, and I don't want that. I don't want my husband to end up hating me because most of these problems didn't start occuring until after we got married. As of right now, I can't hold a job. I can only work if its a desk job (hence the going back to college).

So..what would you do to cheer yourself up if you were in a similar situation? How would you deal with everyone? Oy.
