snoozes are important

sleep recover

Note to self.

Even though you may feel like you can stay up all day, do a few chores, go visiting and generally act like everything’s normal, don’t!

Sunday was such a good day. I didn’t need to lie down once! That was my mistake.  On Monday morning I woke up late with a dull head that felt almost bruised, although there were no external signs that this was the case.

Fatigue has hit hard again. I have assigned a story to this fuzzy headed lethargy. As the remnants hanging around in my hair follicles actively disengage, other well-intentioned elements are going into battle to stop it from happening, defending the indefensible.

Imagining such a scenario is far more interesting than accepting that I overstepped the mark by thinking I could get away with not resting with my eyes closed a few times a day. No prizes for guessing what’s next on my list of things to do today.

  1. One of my biggest learnings, fairly early on in a decade of illness, was, “Just because I can, doesn’t mean I should.” Of course, I needed to learn it over and over. And again. And occasionally now, a brief reminder is necessary. Nap and rest whenever possible. ❤

  2. Don’t worry, you will slowly learn what not to do, or that if you insist on doing somethings you must allow 2days in your life to do it. 1 day to do whatever and 1 day to recover! At some point it will probably be ok. Patience. I think it is best to channel Eyore at certain points!
