I've been in a nasty flare the past few weeks, and have had to slow way down.
But--because of the many good 'cheerleaders' here, I've kept going and am pacing myself. There was a time when I would have stayed in bed instead!
I just have to say: Thanks for the inspiration to keep going. I had planned on attending a craft fair today with my hubby, and almost backed out. I just felt achy, tired, and irritable....but I went. And you know what? I had a great time, despite my spaciness from the meds. It turned out to be a really fun, relaxing day even though I fell asleep on the way home (no, I wasn't driving!).
So--sometimes it's so worth it to step out of your comfort zone and 'just do it.' I wasn't at my best, true, but I still had a great time and am feeling a little proud of myself (in a good way) for going on, despite feeling lousy.
I'm better now and feel refreshed.
Thanks to friends here for inspiration!!
