when your body says stop

Well, it happened. I’ve officially hit a wall. That invisible wall that pops up when I have pushed myself too far.

I am not sure if I have mentioned this before, but I have chronic fatigue syndrome. I know guys, it sounds fake. But let me assure you, it’s not. I was diagnosed at a young age with Epstein Barr. In other words..I have chronic mono. It comes and goes, usually worsened by stress. And guys, it’s NO BUENO right now.

I have zero energy. My short term memory is gone. I have enough mental capacity to get the minimum at work done…and even that is not going so well. I have lost complete conversations I have had with family members. I have made my husband think he’s lost his mind because I can’t remember simple things he has told me.

We love to travel, go to concerts, see new things, go out with our friends. But my body has said, STOP. REST. I need to get my body back to normal, and my brain back in working order!

So, this weekend is going to be just that. Quiet. Rest. Sleep. I can’t be more excited about that!

I hope you guys have a great weekend!!

xoxo

    I’m sorry you’re going through this, but it’s great you’re able to recognise when you need to slow to a gentle stop. I hope you feel better soon 🙂
