Trying to remember to pace myself!

Feeling sooooo much better after two excellent physio sessions that I went shopping straight after the last one, came home, unpacked it all and attacked my much neglected embroidery, in the meantime sorting out bits and bobs relating to Spain (not least of which is that I’ve finally got the itinerary, but due to a small mix-up, still not got my e-ticket). I am now feeling somewhat shattered and trying to persuade myself that the best thing to do is STOP. Fortunately I won’t take much persuading as I know if I keep going I’ll just put myself into another flare just in time for my little trip. So … night night everybody …

I don’t get it!

Well, I made my decision yesterday … eventually. I took the afternoon off. I continued to feel completely rotten, had to take Tiny Cat to the vet for an injection later in the afternoon (to get her a booster injection to try to put on weight – ironic really when Enormous Cat could easily spare some!), and felt rotten there. Had a rotten evening, went to bed feeling rotten and had a rotten night’s sleep … I’m sure you get the picture.

Well, I woke up this morning feeling absolutely fine, and I still feel fine at 4p.m. with almost no pain, and reasonably wide awake!

I wonder if it’s time to give up trying to second guess this benighted disease! Or maybe even if it didn’t feel yesterday as though ‘pacing myself’ was doing any good at all, it has really.
