There’s tired and then there’s I drink coffee all day and still nap in the afternoon, chronic illness tired! I exercise and eat cleaner these days, I do whatever I can do, to try and get more hours out of my days.

Chronic illness tired, fatigue, is not a normal tired. It’s like the tired to your bones that you feel when your kids are first born and not sleeping through the night. The exhaustion when you’ve got a big project and pulling 18 or 20 hour days for a week. Only problem is, this tired doesn’t go away with a nice walk in the cool air or an extra cup of coffee. It is there hovering everyday. So doing too much one day, means 2 or 3 days of not being able to do anything.

One of my biggest challenges this last year has been going from having 12 or 16 productive hours in a day, down to 5 or 6. If I’m really lucky I get 8. However there are days when I wake up feeling pretty good and push too hard and then end up losing a whole day or 2 to recover. Then there are days in a row when I’m only good for 2 or 3 hours and those are the days when I really have to work to accept my new limits.

Do you live with a chronic illness? Have you learned to prioritize what really needs done?
