Since I had the c-section I have begun to find I can't currently do as much as I did before. I get so tired. I did clothes and some Christmas shopping on Tuesday and Michaela's dr appt and some online shopping and cooking yesterday and am SO tired today, I literally feel weak and my bones ache.
I am a control freak and also can't bear jobs being left undone, I can't stand procrastinating...and there's just so much that needs to be done still even though I cleared a load of mundane jobs before half-term. So I am having a hard time accepting my limitations at the moment.
Oh sure I know I have limitations and freely admit it.
I am a procrastinator LOL so some things get a free pass for a bit while other things I must do then and heaven help those in my way!
I dont know how you accept your limitations other than to repeat to yourself that the world wont end if its not done at a certain time. That it will be alright until you can get to it and you havent failed or anything you just are prioritizing.
Awe Sharron my dear. I had a c-section with Nevaeh as well, and let me tell you it was hard! It wasn't because I wanted to do chores around the house, but because I can't stand anyone attempting to help me. I don't like feeling useless.
Just remind yourself you're human, that you need time to heal, and that indeed, the world will not end while you take a moment to sit down and heal.
Thank you ladies, I will try to tell myself those things.
It does help if I tick SOMETHING off the list each day. Even if I don't feel like going out, I have phone calls to make etc. I was thinking of going to Tesco today to get stocking fillers for Dan and Michaela, but am simply too tired. So I have phoned my old school instead to ask them to decide on a day I can come and introduce Michaela to my old class, which needed doing. At least I feel like I've ticked a job off.
I need to start affirming that my health is more important than anything else I think.
