It's Not Happening Today!

Dear John,
 
I had a lovely, busy weekend and I've spent today paying for it. But that's okay, because it's a day off. I woke up, assessed myself, and cancelled all my plans. Everything will keep.
 
You were so good about understanding that fibro and CFS are different every day, and that every day of activity will exact its price in the future. Thank you for that. Your understanding helped me to accept my own limits. You made it easier for me to be easier on myself. I'm getting better at taking care of myself without you being here to make me do it. I suppose it's more important that I do that now, since I don't have you to fall back on if I have a major flare.
 
Thank you for teaching me so much about myself. Thank you for loving me, and so making it possible for me to love myself. If I mess up, feel free to Gibbs-slap me.
 
Love you great bunches,
Joan.
