It’s one of those days, when I’m already feeling behind on all that I have to do. My recently increased symptoms have really slowed me down. All I can do, of course, is to just keep pacing myself.
Much is accomplished, a little bit at a time, after all. Sometimes, I think chronic illness gets way too much attention for this all too common scenario in my life.
After all, maybe my age is a factor in activities taking longer for me to finish. I’m no longer in my 20’s, 30’s, or 40’s. Perhaps I’m just unrealistic about how long a particular activity actually takes to complete.
Therefore, I overestimate what I think I can get done in any given day. However, I’m convinced that having invisible forms of chronic illness plays a role in this situation.
Because I appear generally healthy, others don’t bother to stop me and to say that I’m trying to do way too much, on any given day.
