Feeling pleased with myself

I’m feeling almost “normal” today. The sun is shining, I got up early (for me) and stayed vertical for hours. I socialised, I helped move a wardrobe, I did laundry. I went out to buy gas for the bbq. I cooked dinner and cleaned up.

I have to remind myself to be careful today because days like this are dangerous to people like me. It’s so easy to get over excited by a reduction in symptoms and do too much.

I stopped myself from sorting out the craft room and filling the new wardrobe with stuff, as much as I wanted to. I didn’t load up the car for a dump trip. I didn’t borrow my dad’s lawnmower and mow the lawn. I was restrained and just enjoyed not feeling particularly sick or sore or tired. I enjoyed the sun and the company, and left it at that.

I think I did just enough.
