Um, it happens.
Some days are way worse than others, like an alien came in and took over my normal silly happy self. My daughter notices it the most and being 14 yrs old loves to point it out when I am being “boring” or “grumpy”. I know I used to be a lot more fun and totally silly, never caring what others thought and smiling just because I was a happy girl.
Now, somedays I just wake up a grumpy cat or even in the middle of the day that cloud can creep in and steal my happy.
I notice now that I have to concentrate harder on the task at hand and cannot get distracted or I completely lose it. The days I just wake up freaking grumpy I make every effort to shake it off or even faking it. I have learned I am more sensitive, I can not multitask as much and I am not the same girl I used to be. I suppose there is a mourning process that comes with all of this MS and that could be where some of my grumps come from.
On the Bright Side
The upside to this, because there always is one if you live in my world, I have learned to be more patient, slow down, be present and keep pressing forward each day in healing my brain…..it truly has become my first job in life, without that nothing else matters.
So, maybe I am a bit of a grumpy cat now and again, maybe everyone else should cut me some slack. Just a thought.
