I think that everybody feels it, that moment when you have seriously had enough and just wish that it would get a bit easier. I have had the flu for almost two months now, and I am quite honestly over it all. I know that I will have it more than the “regular” person (I have Hashimotos Thyroiditis) but it is all getting beyond a joke.
So changes have had to be made. Back to gluten free I go and vitamins are my friends once more. My GP has upped some of my regular medications and asked that I go a little easier on myself. And I have started my PhD.
What does this mean for me? It means that I am tired at the end of the day, particularly on the days that my body is kicking my ass. It means that I am going to be taking some time out and quilting. It means that I am going to have to learn to say “no” a little more.
I need to remember the way that I started out the year…
As for the craft side of me. I am resisting the urge to pull back my knitting, it is going to be much more blanket like when it is finished than I intended.
