Keeping the Balance

I'm having a much better day today, in fact I'm actually getting things done.

After a day of not getting off the couch yesterday, this is fantastic.

It's important, however, to remember not to do too much, just because I feel I can. Otherwise, if I overdo things, I'm going to pay for it for days.

So, even though I'm feeling quite well, and I have a lot to get done, I'm going to intersperse all my household tasks with periods of rest.

I've found I can actually get quite a bit done this way - more than if I tackle the housework head-one and just push myself until I'm too exhausted to keep going.

  1. I don't feel so bad now I know that I'm not the only person out there like this. I feel so useless and lazy and get so very frustrated when there are things that I either need or want to do and I just can't. I also feel bad for my youngest child, she has missed out on so much, because of my illness and yet of all my children she is the most understanding. It still doesn't make me feel any better about it.

  2. I understand your frustration - there is so much I know my family needs from me - and I keep failing to do.
