The last few weeks I’ve been feeling pretty good, still lots of pain, but lots of energy as well. So I’ve started saying “yes” again. Yes to having people over, yes to taking my kids outside, yes to cleaning my house, yes to helping other people. It was great, but this week I have been paying the price. Will I ever learn?
My problem is that I like helping people, I like having people over, and I like going fun places with the kids. So when I am feeling good I feel the need to do everything I can. Of course this contributes to me eventually crashing and being completely unable to help anybody at all. You’d think I would have a better system worked out! It’s a constant balancing act that takes constant adjusting.
