Why can't I learn to pace myself? Grrr.
Have returned to work and Rheumie told me not to go from 'zero to hero' and make sure i have rest every evening but tonight i just could not stick the state of the kitchen. In the time I've been away my flatmates have created a god awful yucky mess and I just couldn't live in it. Cue an hour and a half vigorous cleaning after a full days work.
I didn't just clean and tidy. Oh no i had to pull all the fridge out and clean the shelves, wipe the walls down etc etc. at the time i felt great and was glad i was getting it done and in the back of my mind i was thinking 'well it doesn't hurt yet so i can carry on'. Within 5 minutes of sitting down i was in excruciating pain. Got into bed and was wriggling around and moaning in agony.
Still awake now as pain still going strong. I'm such an idiot and now ill pay for it tomorrow with lack of sleep.
Sooooo frustrated with lupus but more with myself - why did i have to push it? Grrrrrrrrrr.
Hope you fellow Lupies are all tucked up in bed asleep
