I'm a 40-something stay-at-home mom to five (ages 20, 18, 17, 14 and 10) and now gramma of one (just turned 1). I've been married for twenty years to a guy that puts up with all of my crazy and sticks with me anyway.
I suffer from several chronic illnesses (mental and physical) that make it hard for me to do pretty much anything. Chronic fatigue is the overwhelming symptom at the time and has stopped me from literally living.

Just a log of the meals I make and possibly eat. I have chronic fatigue which makes it hard for me to do anything. I save my energy to be able to cook for my family, but I've developed some other health issues involving food and now I'm too anxious to eat any of it.
