Re: Vacation Overload
No, you aren't the only one who overdoes it sometimes. I'm a member of that club and eventually I'm gonna learn my lesson.
In my zeal to prove to some people that I can function in a better state than usual I put forth a 1000% of any energy I have.
Like you, I've had to take a little more meds than prescribed to get through it, but when someone is on vacation with you and sees how you are 24 hours a day it can be quite a shock to them. So, I hide it. And then I have to dole out the meds with what I have left and all i have to show for anything is the situation you're in now.
It's almost like I automatically fall into it. Or--something happens like the toilet flooding all over the place and I have to get down on all fours to mop, clean, fix and replace all to normal. It's like I'm alone and have no choice but to get working on it. What else can I do? Then I figure--the heck with it--and keep on working at something because I know i already (through not fault of my own) did damage to my body.
No, you aren't alone when it comes to over-doing it. Somehow we get through it though, don't we?
