CFS makes me feel bad

Tuesday, September 27, 2011

Three days per week, I do water aerobics. I have to. I have osteoporosis and was told lack of exercise weakened my bones. Once a week is Bible study and there is no way I'm giving that up. I'm a writer and am working on a novel, but I have such little time. By the time I get home from these activities, it's time for lunch and after that it's two p.m. and I'm so exhausted I have to fall into bed for a three hour nap. By the time I get up from that, it's supper time and then I do my social networking, get ready for bed, and spend time with Jesus and the Bible. My CFS and napping make me feel like such a failure. I'm sleeping my life away! Anybody that reads this, please pray for me. I need His help so much!

    In no way are you a failure. Also, you may find after a time, which might be several months or a year, your energy will increase. I have RA, osteoporosis, fibromyalgia and MS, my energy was at zero. About one year later it changed. I will pray for you. Please know God has your very best interest at heart. Some times we have to go through an experience to learn a lesson of importance before we can move on.

    I agree it's Never a failure to listen to your body.

    Napping is not a sign of failure, it's a sign that you're listening to your body's needs. Your days sound plenty productive as it is! Hang in there and keep your chin up! emoticon

I've been ill for a couple of weeks, and have been crawling into bed every evening for a nap. I sure don't feel very useful or productive!

I pray that you will feel better, so you don't need as many naps, or you feel better about yourself if it is not God's will for you to feel better physically.
