Right now I am in the middle of an ME and fibromyalgia crash, caused by trying to do too much and not saying no enough and things just happening that I have had to deal with and not enough sleep over a number of weeks. It seems a cruel irony that a fatigue causing illness should come with the inability to sleep.
I am trying not to feel sorry for myself, or blame myself too much, although I know that this is what happens if I overdo things; neither am I asking for your pity. But there might not be much interesting blogging going on for a bit while I regroup and keep practising resting. I am trying to teach myself to see resting as constructive, not simply wasting time or achieving nothing, this effort is in its early days so far.
For now I shall go back to bed, in between short times knitting, I think having something restful to do is so important with any kind of chronic illness. It provides something else to think about outside oneself and helps pass the time. Certainly I have become good at finding low-energy things to do, perhaps one day I shall have to write about it here, when I have rested that is!
