Well, I wrote this once and some how must have cancelled instead of submitting. So, I will try again. I have been a very manic and busy person; expected enormous quantities of accomplished work of myself, in just one day. I was driven; and now it is all I can do to complete one creative job, or shopping trip, or walk to the mailbox; in one day. So I have to accept that no matter how big or small the job is I have accomplished that day, that I feel good about it and not inadequate. And because of that I expect less of myself, and feel pride in that one job; if I get to do more, but pain is a real deterint, although I milk it for ounce I can stand, then I can be happier for that, and not feel so inadequate about the things I can no longer do, or the time I would have spent doing things if I was healthier. I deal with today and what I can do, and not on yesterday on what used to be; and not on tomorrow, of what could be; Just what I did Today.
