How do you figure out what your limits are? I am the type of person that on my good days when I have lots of energy, I get everything done I can....but boy do I pay for it the next day. My husband gets upset with me, but he has also known me since I was 15, so he knows how stubborn I am.
I used to do that and still do occasionally. I've found that if the thought pops in my head "am I doing too much?" the answer is usually yes and I take a long break or just relax for the rest of the day. To stay on top of the things to do I plan out my week and distribute my tasks throughout the week. Usually up to 3 must dos a day, if I can do more then great, but I'm usually able to manage the 2 or 3 daily tasks.
@A MyFibroTeam Member I am still trying to figure this out for myself I find that on my good days (as they are so far and few between) I feel like I need to catch up on the things I should be doing or want to do like the garden and house work. But like you I suffer afterwards and promise myself I won't do the same thing on the next good day, yet I always do I think I get excited that I can actually have a normal ish life for a day 😂 🤞Fingers crossed for you xx
I have just watched a great lecture on YouTube from an American doctor who specialises with CFS/ME and Fibromyalgia he said the ratio should be 1:3 so if you do something for 2ninutes you should rest for 6 minutes I'm going to give his recommendation a go good luck all 😉🤗
As I always say, Work, rest, work, rest, and continue on.
