Autoimmune-related stuff

Yesterday, I felt pretty energetic in the morning. Mid-afternoon, I got a call from my sweetheart, and nearly jumped out of my skin when my cellphone vibrated and rang. My response clued Morris in that I wasn't quite okay, but I didn't realize just then what was what.

You see, I was working on yesterday's blog post about poetry-related stuff, and was being very focused at the moment. I thought it was just me being startled.

But no. A bit later I got up and figured out I had hit the wall. Dropped all my spoons. Whatever metaphor you prefer, it applied, and I was fatigued.

Rather than fight it, I opted to rest for the remainder of the afternoon and evening, even taking a short nap, which enabled me to heat up dinner for the two of us, at least.

It was one of the first times I can recall being at peace with the fact that I was fatigued, even though it (once again) sneaked up on me and I didn't immediately realize or recognize it.

Today, I deliberately did creative writing stuff in the morning. Took a walk with my sweetheart after lunch, then a nap. And now, I've been using my time to do some more stuff that requires focus and energy, since it's likely I'll lose both again sometime soon.

I am, again, at peace with it. Because I can't lick it, and fighting it is senseless.

You can only do what you can do. Can't make the body do what it can't or won't. You have the right attitude towards it - pacing and acceptance. Well done. And of course, feel better.
