When you have lupus, it can be so hard to find that fine line between doing what you can and doing too much.
I find I am too much of a perfectionist. Sometimes I really just try too hard. I try too hard to do, I say yes too much. I try too hard to please. I go and go and go. And then I’m stopped.
So this week, I am tired. I feel down, a little physically and mentally. Mother Nature isn’t helping me with all this ragweed, so I’m taking Claritin and Benedryl like it is going out of style.
I’ve slept about 10-11 hours every night, yet still fall into bed exhausted. I sleep and sleep and sleep. I feel like I could sleep right now.
My body is telling me to take a break, so I’m giving it one. I’m trying to eat nutritious foods and not stress myself out about it.
Sometimes you just have to let go of doing, and just take a breather.
