    It don't really know how much I'm 'capable' of doing, so can't say if I tend to over or under-estimate my own capabilities. It's a real hardship with CFS, and the quacky promotion of positive-cognitions that surrounds the condition makes it much harder.

    I'm really in the minority. I'm the only one who underestimates. I guess I'm just very cautious.
