And never appologize for them. I have to admit I am just horrible at this. I want to be able to do more than I can. I am still not used to this limiting condition. Aaaghh But anytime I have pushed myself way to far I have paid the price. Me and no one else. I dont step up and say, I am sorry I wont be able to do that. I feel guilty for not being able to be 100 percent. But I am learning the hard way. When I am down with a migrain from a tweeked neck and really cant walk for a couple days, its me that looses out on life, not the person I am worried about upsetting. This weekend I did an artshow and decided going into this I would just be upfront and explain I had limitations. I would be more than willing to help in any and all ways I could. I wasnt asking to be excused or pardoned from my responsibilities for participating in the show. AND you know what. They were very helpful and understanding and it made it alot easier on me. Soooo, dont give up and sit in front of the TV, there is so much fun in life. Learn about yourself and push yourself to that line. Just dont cross it. It is that ever illusive fine line, but by paying attention to your body, you will learn it.
