Growth Requires Rest

Today I cleaned for a couple hours, went with my sister to Costco, took a nap, and filled out my absentee ballot. (have you?)

It’s not often I feel like I have enough energy to get anything done– I often need help showering, dressing, taking medications, eating– but the day after infusions, if I have even a fraction of energy, I go overboard and try to get all of the household tasks completed by myself which doesn’t end up going well for me because I crash. Today I asked for help and rested after the chores were completed, and I’m still feeling good– not strong, but alive and singing Hamilton lyrics (singing is always a good sign).  

I need to keep reminding myself that growth requires rest.
