People in general dont understand what were going through unless they had to experience it themselves. The last time my in -laws were in town they wondered why my energy was so low and why I wasnt giving my kids extra attention. Sometimes I got to fake it till i make it when family is around. The hardest part is when all the family is offering pie and candy, ice cream and have to tell them im on a specific diet. The holidays are almost over so i can get back on track without the temptations.
