listening to my body

I hit the wall today.

Had a little bit of insomnia last night and that, on the heels of a hectic week, did me in.

I barely woke when my family did this morning and went back to sleep until 11:30. I spent the day in my pajamas, dressing only in time to walk the dog and pick up my son from school.

I used to push myself way past exhaustion. I can't do that any more.

Sometimes you just have to stop, don't you. I think that was one of the hardest things I learnt - that not pushing myself beyond the brink of tiredness was not a sign of weakness. It was a strategy move - saving energy today means I'll have it to do things another day. Pushing beyond means I've sacrificed some days for recovering from being over-tired.
You sound like you're dancing the line pretty well - kudos.
I sometimes miss that slower pace - if it could be achieved without cancer...
