Even though I'm in clinical remission I find that I have days that I just can't seem to function. I call them my off days. Usually a couple times a week. The only thing I can do is just rest. I'm lucky because my children are now older and my husband is understanding. I find that if I do too much like going shopping or doing alot of cleaning I suffer for it for a day or two.
