It made me think about boundaries, especially.
My boundaries keep out my temptation to do too much for my health and wellbeing; which is self-preservation by boundaries.
A friend said “I noticed you’ve been struggling recently.” But I hadn’t been struggling, I had been pacing myself in order not to struggle (which would have happened otherwise.)
Pacing is one of my boundaries for life.
Having been forced to stop working aged 53 due to CFS, I was later diagnosed with Fibromyalgia as well. (With the added challenges of hypersensitivity to chemicals, smells, various foodstuffs, bright light, noise, etc.)
10 years later I found the Gupta Program and started my recovery. Wanting to pay back some small part of what I owe the Gupta Program I later volunteered to be a moderator in the Facebook Gupta Forum.
