Struggling with a partial recovery after a very long illness
KatyMac I'm sorry you're having a rough time. It can be tough coming to terms mentally with your state of health especially when feeling down and "Woe is me, why is my body so shit and everyone else's seems to work?"
The only thing you can do is try. Try to do one thing and see how it affects you. Don't do it again if it hurts, or do it differently/ for a shorter time if it leaves you wiped out. Try to change your mindset from "my body is shit" to "it is what it is, right what am I going to try to do today?" (hard I know). Try to rest when you can and if working, take time off when appropriate. Health is more important than work when the chips are REALLY down. Try to give yourself one tiny thing to enjoy each day, even if that is a favourite biscuit or an early night.
And do you know what, if you've tried and it hasn't worked/helped, then so what. Tomorrow is another go round on the wheel.
gobbin, understanding exactly where you're coming from.
