This weekend my joint pain got pretty bad. I knew that I needed to take it easy: rest, watch tv, in general do what pleases me. However, I am not very good at relaxing. There is always some school work to be done, some errand to be ran, etc. I absolutely did not want my joint pain to progress into a full blown flare, but I also did not want to just take time out to relax because it is not something that comes naturally to me. I'm happiest when I am busy.
Today I am not feeling that well and it is the beginning of the week. Not the best way to start off. And I know I really, really need just to lay in bed for a little bit and let my brain and body chill. But it's not that simple. Spanish class starts in 45 minutes-we have two quizzes. After that I need to get some lunch and then I go to work for a few hours. Then I have homework to do-reading and a video to watch for my online class.
I need to learn how to do this. I cannot do everything. Hopefully, very soon I will figure this out.
