Good Morning, Friends!
I have updated my Spoonie Suggestions section so be sure to check it out!
If you’ve explored a bit of my site you would have come across the “What is a Spoonie?” post detailing what it is to refer to yourself as such.
I am a spoonie and as such I have found myself in some unusual situations with new ways of embarrassing myself or screwing up.
One such instance happened two days ago when I finally bought this (awesome) domain name and site! When I begin something I tend to go all in and work tirelessly until I have completed the task at hand. When you’re a spoonie you don’t have the luxury of perfectionism. Tasks have to be broken down into smaller, manageable steps, and that is a lesson I am still learning every day. Instead of cleaning the house top to bottom in one afternoon, it is better to break it down into a room (or even half a room) a day. Maybe Monday is the day to clean the bathroom and vacuuming will be done Tuesday, and so on.
After my foray into website developing and planning took me into the long hours of the night, I found myself doubled over in pain, wondering if I should be calling an ambulance. My husband helplessly rubbed my back and ran me a bath while attempting to hold back his I-told-you-so’s, because he did, in fact, tell me so. Thank goodness I had nothing planned the following day…
Which brings me to the following day (which also happens to be yesterday) when I woke up and had a nagging feeling that I had an appointment or something else to do that day. At around 9:36am I was so sure that I was missing something that I phoned the pain clinic and inquired if I had a scheduled physiotherapy appointment for that day. I did. At 10am. So I (as quickly as possible) brushed my teeth, threw on deodorant and the closest clothes I could find and phoned a taxi to come get me. I dialed my husband on repeat until he answered and asked him to meet me at the hospital while I fumbled myself and my cane in the taxi. Thankfully, we made it on time and the session went well, but it was a close call!
So all of this was the last two days, and now here we are!
Can you relate?
Love and Spoons,
