Was the class you took Bruce Campbell's? I have never had to use a cane, wheelchair or anything before but hardly being able to function has made me very willing. Though at the Dr. when I had to use the wheelchair the first time I did cry. Now I am in the mode of I am going to do what I need to do to take care of myself and conserve as much of my precious energy as I can so I can use it where I really need it. I have done some form of push/crash for 18 years and it's gotten me where I am today--hardly able to function now. I am so ready to do it a new way and use the pacing because it really seems to work. It is a challenge; that's why the support in sharing is so helpful. When I went out today to do my session it was such a beautiful day--there were so many things I wished I could do. But I am grateful that I got out in the beautiful weather if briefly and after my session my body was very clear that I needed to go home and lie down immediately! I hate feeling depleted all the time. I think another gift of doing the pacing will be that I will be doing less but feeling better more--while doing things and afterward. I'm already experiencing some of that.
