In 2018 Summer Reboot
Jul 07, 2018
So, Thursday... the "take a pause" day... I was at work, turned a certain way and my back locked up. My body forced me to pause... The problem is, I've been doing NOTHING for the last two days and it's making me crazy. I absolutely hate being immobile and feeling helpless. All the more reason to take care of myself. I feel like I have to be busy all the time. Staying busy is my coping mechanism for all the emotional trama that I've experienced. I feel like I need to be productive all day, every day. I guess the point that I'm trying to make is this: when I get so busy that I don't take a break, when I focus so much on how much I can accomplish every day that I don't sit down until bedtime every day, when I forget to rest, my body does it for me. My body forces me to stop. I mean, when I miss a day of work, I am in bed, unable to do anything. It is extremely important to let yourself rest, or your body will force you to. I have some mobility back today and I am definitely not spending another day in bed. I was thinking about going to work, but I'm going to stay home and just do some light housework. If I go to work, I will surely overdo it again. Anyway, thanks for listening/reading ❤❤❤
Ok here is to being raw and taking the first step!
