All my good work yesterday resting rather than doing the things I had planned to do resulted in my being able to have a basically active and functional day today.

I took time to rest today also, both physically and mentally. I know that on Saturday I threw pacing out the window and paid for this with a day and a half of fatigue. But I have a renewed sense of looking forward to implementing my pacing system that I have been working out for myself.

Dear Self, please remember:

Feeling good is not enough. You need to take care of yourself every day, not just on symptomatic days. Please pace yourself on non-work days. At least try to take a break during mental rabbit-hole travels. And continue to enjoy doing it; you know you enjoy the results!
