I’m going to side with the YOU who’s making the less-smart choices for a second and say: even when you do make the “smartest” choice there are still those WTF days where nothing behaves as it should. So don’t beat you up. You’re doing the best you can. And it’s exhausting and continual work. I’m always proud of everyone working to manage it. It’s work.
And I laughed when you said you deleted your other post due to the harebrained suggestions. It seemed brilliant to delete it and I am glad you didn’t toss out your dairy products and then take a bunch of random stuff someone on the Internet told you to take.
That’s the rub I think. Even at 100%++ effort, sometimes it doesn’t go smoothly. And @Jen, I love your point about giving yourself slack if your chores backburnered because of health chores! Really, sometimes everything else takes a back seat.
I’m sending good thoughts out to you @allison (and everyone else here too, now that I think on it.) And I hope smoother times are ahead.
