One of my goals for last year was to take better care of myself. Well I failed miserably at that! I suffer from hypermobility-syndrome, & currently am dealing with a massive flare up of symptoms. I've not been able to work this week & have been hobbling around like an old person. I'm not sure what has caused this flare up, the weather? Or just generally overdoing things? I woke up feeling better yesterday, but thought practically & made myself rest, rather than trying to get the housework etc done as I normally would (my house is trashed!!). I stayed in bed as its the most comfortable place to be, but cleared all the meds & rubbish off my bedside table as it was annoying me to look at them. Instead I filled it with things that I love, flowers, a candle, a cup of tea & a photo of my hubby, & I relaxed.
Until I had to do the school run & so today I am back to being in lots of pain. But instead of feeling down about it, I've lit my candle, there's a bar of chocolate next to my cup of tea & I have two new magazines to read. I've got no plans for the weekend, apart from a party on Sunday that my youngest has been invited to. I'm hoping that more rest will mean that next week will be better!
So top of my goals for 2015 is to take better care of myself, to rest when I need to, to exercise more & eat better. To get my hypermobility under control, so that flare ups like this become rarer (unfortunately this condition doesn't go away).
