Hidden Restriction.

The trouble with long term illness,
hidden illness,
is that you start to doubt yourself.
Continuous exposure to exhaustion
and loss of concentration,
makes being non-functional
become the norm.
Then when thinking about the future,
becoming particularly cautious
about what is manageable.
Underselling myself.
Setting me up
to under-perform
and later feel bad about
my level of accomplishment.

  1. I can see where this is very frustrating and can be self defeating. But look at the past thirty+ days, how you’ve learned that seeking out the positive things in each day has seemed to give you a bit more energy, you’ve accomplished a little more than you would have before, right? You are making tremendous progress Peter, keep focusing on that and feeding your soul!
