For the last 10 days or so, I’ve had a flare up of symptoms, which includes
- Weakness in legs
- Difficulty standing, walking
- Drop falls
- Severe tiredness; struggling to keep eyes open and speech slurred.
When I’ve felt like this, I’ve had little option but to rest. I haven’t had the brain power to do anything else. There is no doubt that having a flare up is frustrating etc. No one is going to enjoy them. I had to cancel or change plans, including going to a birthday party of a good friend. Well there is never a good time to be ill though is there. So rather than dwell on it and think life is on hold, I acknowledge how I am feeling and accept it means I need to rest. That’s not wasting time. It is exactly what I need.
