I decided that I was going to attempt to do my own spring cleaning this year instead of hiring someone. I got about three hours into the job on Saturday and I had to quit. My body just refuses to allow me to do anything strenuous.
I guess after all of those years of constantly pushing myself, even though I was sick, my body just said, “Okay, you’re not going to listen to me then I will make you listen”. And it does.
So now I have to pay someone to come in and do all of my windows, wash down my walls, baseboards, etc.
I just keep hoping that I can be normal. I thought I had accepted the fact that I’m not.
There is always that little bit of hope there that maybe, just maybe, I can do these things.

My best friend has CFS too and she’s just starting to accept that she can’t do everything that she wants to do… it’s been very hard for her. I’m going to send her over to check out your blog!
Hi Bev! I have had it for many years and still can’t accept everything that I can’t do. Just when I think I’ve got a handle on it and have started to deal, I find myself going back to old ways.
