Only diagnosed last Nov but really struggling to pace myself, I don't think I know the meaning of pacing myself. When you have worked for over 40 years and now some days I don't have the energy to move, but on other days I feel as if I can do anything, ha ha, just can't stop myself. I say I'm only going to do "this" and nothing else, but on I go and on and on, I'm my own worst enemy. Yesterday had the grandchildren for a few hrs, yes kids we can make cakes, big butterfly mounds, lemon drizzle and Victoria sponge butterflies, they were yummy but I was exhausted last night. Today, off I go again clearing out a walk in cupboard, heavy work moving things. I'm an idiot, totally wiped out and in tears tonight with pain. Fed up of doctor saying, I'm giving you these sleeping tablets but don't take them, duh!!! I only take them when I have had very little sleep for days. It's heaven knowing within half an hrs of taking even a 3.5 mg that you are going to get some sleep for at least 5 hrs instead of staring at the ceiling all night. Sorry it's such a long rant but needed to get it off my chest and know you will all know where I'm coming from. Help how do I start to pace myself xx
