Over the past few weeks, I have had a few days where I have pushed myself through, so as to not miss out, and for the most part, it has worked out fairly well. But then I get days when I am completely wiped out. It is hard for me to understand, and harder for people around me to understand. Why quite good one day, and then hiding under the covers the next?
I am forever grateful for all the help and support I get from people. There is so much that I can do because of the help I get. My mum is always doing things for me so that I have energy to do good things, rather than chores. It is a fine line between listening to your body, and being thankful and accepting the support and advice. I am also absolutely keen to try anything, and take part in all that I can. I just know that we all need to learn how to listen to our bodies, and find a happy medium between letting our bodies heal, continuing to live life, not feeling like a nuisance, helping people help you by talking to them about how you feel, and being grateful and appreciative of people's help, and returning it when possible. We need to use the ability we do have and do the best we can with it, accept our limitations, don't use "flaws" as excuses, be kind to ourselves and rest, and make the most of what we can do.
