    Cool Progressing understanding

    Today was my first venture into the travel ball tournaments for this year. I stayed for 2 games. I wanted to stay for the third one ut my daughter said, "Mom you have to drive home after the game do you have the energy for that if you stay". I thought about what she said and agreed to go home.

    I bearly made it to the car.
    I had to sit there quietly to catch my breath and rest before I started driving.
    I had five miles to go when the waves of nausea and fatigue hit.

    I called her and told she was right; I was glad I listened to her.


    The purpose for this post is to share this. My daughter understands. She's noticed and she knew I slept badly last night. I forgot and was ready to overdo.
    I am so proud that she is who and what she is.

    It's so hard to judge when we've done too much or are getting close. I have Delayed Pressure Urticaria and I can do something as little as opening a bottle of water and it will flare. Other days I can do more without a flare so it's very difficult to know when to stop. Plus it takes about 4 hours for it to react to whatever I've done. I can't seem to figure out what I can do and what the warning signs are before it's too late.

    Toni,
    Good for your daughter. It's a good thing that you listened.
    I get really frustrated about driving. I've always loved cars and driving. I used to think nothing of driving by myself from San Antonio to Houston or even to Dallas. Once, I even went on a three state college visiting jaunt with one daughter, and we had such a good time!
    Now, I find that I can drive from home to the mall just fine, but if I push past it just a few miles to go somewhere in Carmel, my legs start spasming and I'm a nervous wreck by the time I get to Carmel. This is just NOT FAIR for an adventurous soul.
    Hugs,
    Marla

    as much as we hate to see our children understand our disease, it is such a comfort when they notice that we feeling badly before we even notice. My daughter has done this a few times too, and i have learned to listen to her, cause each time she was correct.

    yum, yum....lunch tomorrow.
