That's what I do. I ski a bit knowing I need a lot of resting afterwards. But it's a sacrifice I make willingly. Skiing and enjoying the nature gives me something and makes me feel good otherwise. Mind rests.
I like nature so many ways. During fall I love to go pick berries and enjoy the scenery.
It's very therapeutic!
I think it is one thing keeping me sane while handling this illness until hopefully getting treatment.
Being such a lonely wolf sometime bugs me but on the other hand I am very content just on my own as well. I do not feel anxious. I feel very good just alone reading or watching movies etc. I get more done alone as I can do things as slow or fast I feel doing so and I don't have to explain why I am slow.
Otherwise I am very outgoing and social and I enjoy having good conversations and company but only until to a certain point. Even if I were laying on the sofa , talking will wear me out.
Many people can't understand the need to be alone as they can't handle the quietness and their own thoughts. Those people are very taxing as they demand your attention just because they need someone.
I have that light sensitivity too when I am tired. Vitamin A has lessened it tho to a level I can tolerate. I figured I had vitamin A deficiency as well as it does cause light sensitivity.
Good to hear you have improved some, it gives hope that I might eventually have a bit easier life too
