Inertia

lupus.cheezburger.com
Inertia is the tendency of a body at rest to stay at rest.  (Or a body in motion to stay in motion, but let's face it, that very rarely has any impact on me.)

I'm thinking about doing something with my day. But all the things I come up with involve changing out of my warm dressing gown, and getting my feet out from underneath a very warm hairy dog. So, this body at rest on the couch, is remaining, at rest on the couch.

I used to be a high-stress person, one who always got everything done.  Now I seem to be able to overlook lots of things that are less than perfect. (You only have to look at the typos I let go through on some of my posts to realise I've given up on obsessive perfectionism.)

My GP thinks that high-stress, perfectionist, attitude to life might have been one of the triggers for my lupus flaring in the first place. Nobody knows for certain what causes lupus, or what causes it to flare. But the constant stress of the high-achieving person who wants everything totally organised, and everything done perfectly, has to have some impact.

Whatever you're up to today, have a good day. Me, I'm going to lie on the couch a bit longer and think about what I'm doing with the day.
