amexdm Posted April 17, 2013 Share Posted April 17, 2013 (edited) Hello all: I would like to hear from someone who can come up with an analogy of what a day in the life of an SAH person is like when you are having a bad day. I say this because I can just not get through to my sister, several co-workers and some good friends exactly what it's like to have an SAH and have a bad day. I don't care about what other people in my life think about my condition but I would like to give an analogy to the people who are close to me so they can understand becasue they are just not getting it. I've given these people the SAH brochure already and said just read the "Recovery " part and that didnt work. So some examples I've heard on here before of a day with an SAH is like it's a 500 day hangover, flu, getting hit in the head with a baseball bat, brain hemorraghe, fatigue etc. I've used all those analogies and they dont get it.I'm sorry but it is important to me that those VERY close to me(sister, boss, good friends) know that my life is a daily nightmare and I work with it and I'm not just laying around becasue I'm "tired" or lazy. I think personally the flu is a good one. 580 day flu???You feel achy, fatigued, nauseous and dont want to get out of bed. Most "normal" people stay home in bed with the flu right? Us SAH'ers carry on as if a normal day. I don't expect them to totally "get it" but their current level of understanding is unacceptable and frustrating to me. Please help.
