Pushed myself too far too hard

Postby HeppiBean » Thu Dec 26, 2013 11:08 am

As the title says, I pushed myself too much yesterday. My partner has just woken me up to remind me that we're going to his grandparents in an hour.

The problem is I feel like I have been hit full on by a bus, flung into a brick wall and run over by a truck before having my head shoved in a food processor.

Dear lord today is going to be awful!

Currently laying here hoping my painkillers kick in very soon.

I'm sorry there's not really a point to this point... I guess I just needed to moan :/ xx

Hi happibean.
Aaawwww bless you. Seriously I know how you feel. I feel for you.
If I have to do anything within a time limit it just does not happen. I just cannot do it.
I have to pace myself. Ive told all family and friends not to wait for me or rely on me to be on time or get anything done. Its impossible for me. I find it difficult as it is to look after my 5 year old.
Take care of your self. God bless you.

I often describe it as being bit by a bus. Feel really sorry for you especially if you then told you've got to be somewhere! Gentle hugs. Hope your painkillers kick in sooner rather than later. Try and get some sleep today as soon as you can. Take care.

Well I have just finished getting me and the kids ready. Thankfully our lift is late anyway. Painkillers have taken the edge off but I still feel so weak. Thank you for your kind words xx

4 hours in the car yesterday, 4 hours the day before. Cooking Xmas dinner for 4 today. A shiny ffabulus bean-to-cup coffee machine and an extending folding ladder thingy amongst other Xmas presents. Will I pay for these few days of being overly sociable? Quite possibly, but stuff it, it's Xmas, it's worth it to see the families. I can't see the point of living if I don't push my boundaries. Hope you guys all recover soon.

Been a similar time for me with travelling about. 3 hours during the day on Christmas Eve to see my folks, youngest niece and my aunt. Out on the beach for an hour for doglet walkings and doglet had a rare old time running about with my niece :dogrun1:

Christmas Day was 2 hours travelling to have the day with mum~in~law, didn't have to cook dinner tho, which always makes it taste better :chicken-dance: :chicken-dance:

Started to feel a bit off early evening, so I knew payback was starting to make it's claim, but what the heck :tongueout: :tongueout: :tongueout: :tongueout: With a bit of fairy_dust fairy_dust and a dose of Doctor Who, and I managed to last until we were back home.

When we went to bed, for the first time in dog~nose how many nights, I pretty much zonked out straight away and managed to have the most sleep in one night than I have been managing in a week recently. Payback is still reclaiming what is has decided I owe it, but with Santa bringing me some of my favourite bath stuff, I'm going to try and wash the extra hurtys away. It doesn't usually help, but it does give me a good excuse to soak in the bath for a good while and enjoy all the fruity aromas from what I'll use in there :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing:

Trouble is we all think we can do all the things we used to be able to do before fibro. It can be very hard to explain that after doing very little you are totally wiped out. I have that problem with the washing up and need to sit down after 10 minutes. I also find that the effort involved in walking from my car to my office takes so much out of me that it takes my energy away. I am totally exhausted for the rest of the day x :sleep:

Did too much in the run up to Christmas which wasn't helped by my loosing my Xmas grocery slot for on line delivery. Fibro fog was obviously at work the day I did the initial booking as I forgot to press a button and so lost my slot ! I think adrenaline & pain killers kept me going until Christmas day when everything I did was finished by a sleep .

Am .... Put turkey in oven , back for an hours sleep . Uwrap presents & breakfast ....another doze ,
PM Christmas Dinner helped by No2 son and wonderful OH great fun but while others tided up I went up for "an hour" doze.
Managed to watch a bit of evening TV with everyone but went to be and slept the clock around .

Today feel like I have been hit by a truck that then reversed just to make sure .

Am on my way to bed having again slept on and off for most of the day.

Quick query do we every manage to do normal things without taking the consequences. Still can't get used to it and still can't manage to pace myself very well .

merry Christmas everyone lets hope we all have a Great New Year
