It seems that many of us who suffer from fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue are perfectionists. I know that I am.
One of fibromyalgia’s harder lessons has been pacing myself and adjusting to changing (but always lower than before) energy levels and concentration. I know I’m not the only one who isn’t as considerate of myself as I am of others.
I’ve fallen into the perfectionist trap again here with the podcast. I’ve had a hard time posting unless I feel I have something “important” to say or to release a new episode of the podcast that isn’t a certain length. I’ve been using things like the length of my partner’s podcast episodes as a standard for myself. We have different abilities and audiences, and his standards aren’t appropriate for me.
Expect an episode soon, in a new format.
