What would make you feel better in this situation?

I am feeling great today but yesterday and the day before I was feeling completely worn down and stressed out. I felt like my body was actually breaking down but it appears like nothing a days rest and good night sleep couldn't rectify. I said to my husband and daughter if I could only sleep for half an hour I think I might feel better and I will then make dinner. To their disappointment I went up to bed. I was woken up in an hour but just fell back to sleep and when I kind of woke about another half hour later I heard my daughter leaving to go home. About another hour I came down stairs and my husband went out to order pizza for us and our one granddaughter who is staying over for the week. I still didn't feel great I felt drained, weak and vulnerable to a breakdown. At least this is how I felt and I am not sure why because really I have a easy life. Hubby went out to get pizza. I felt like crying because I had wished he would have just made some dinner himself. Or my daughter could have instead of everyone waiting for me. Yes I should appreciate he went out to buy dinner but we eat out quit often and really what I needed was someone to not take the easy way out and some how say we understand by making me dinner. So I felt like take out was a slap in the face. Is that weird of me to feel this way? Do you think I am just ungrateful? I just felt like gee sure you don’t' feel like cooking so you can go get take out. I mean I know I could of done the same thing but really if I had asked it would of been a bit of a grumble; for example will we ate out the other night can't you make something. And I would have said yaw but I didn't feel like crap the other day. Am I spoiled, ungrateful and selfish or what?

I think sometimes we think a lot about a situation and put more into it than is really there. He probably just had a craving for pizza so went out and bought it. Men don't think about stuff nearly as much as women. Don't beat yourself up over it. Glad to hear you are feeling better today.
