Has this ever happened to you? It happens to me...in fact...I'm kinda going through a thingy right now.
Yesterday I was feeling pretty good and I took advantage of it. My body is kicking me now mind you and I'm feeling it hard. The weather isn't helping much either.
Have your activities of the day before ever stop you from the activities of your today? I think we've all been here and it's one of the most frustrating things about living with chronic pain.
We know our activities can knock us on our butts some days...but we can't stop living life because it will happen...we just can't...but we can learn to care for ourselves when it does happen. Give thought to what you need to help yourself recover from your activities of the day(s) before...write them down and refer to your list the next time this happens....and do at least one thing on your list to make you feel good... something to soothe your body and mind...something that allows you to heal.
Taking the time to recover from our activities is a healing thing...it does NOT make you lazy nor selfish. Living with a chronic illness means there will be days when we just can't...and we need to learn to be okay with that without beating ourselves up for it.
Be active when you can...heal when you need...and take good care of you okay?
