|Feel The Pain ~Mindfulness.|
October 14, 2020
Monday 12th at 09:40 a.m., right through to 17:30 p.m. today, I have been working long hours in preparation for our first residential village afternoon tea. These were unanimously decided at this first tea, to be held twice a month on a Wednesday at 15:00.
I've been double diagnosed with M.E. and fibromyalgia. One causes chronic tiredness and the other severe constant pain. As I worked physically, so I have begun to work on the inside too. I can tolerate at lot of constant pain BUT! I need to slow the pace down substantially. So, I did. What took me two days and two hours this morning to finish, I could have completed in 7 hours if I was well. I'm not going to put myself under this sort of pressure anymore. It's not wise to.
Feeling a little better now that I have been in bed for two hours. I'm staying here until my meeting tomorrow night.
Then I'm on enforced bedrest (myself doing this to myself) until the pain of overworking has gone. It upsets my nervous system ~physiologically. Not okay.
A great deal of good things has come out of this experience though. And for that I am truly grateful. My body's had a good workout. Even though I'm sore, I feel better for the experience.
A wonderful feeling to be a social part of my village community.
Doggone tired. Had meds, time to sleep until never.
Princess Dekkie, Prince Fluff, King Sandy, Calico and Huck wave a paws "hi there" for MJ. Especially for those whose health is not good at the moment.
Much love from New Zealand.
