- DX FIBRO
I always feel like I have to do things for people. I don't know how to say "no." So, I end up stuck in this cycle where I'm constantly doing things for others and then I'm so tired, I'm too tired to even take a shower. I used to be pretty good at saying "no" when I couldn't do something but lately, I've just been saying "yes" to everything even though I feel overextended. I don't really feel like people around me understand that sometimes, I just need some breathing room. I need some time to relax and not stress. The stress just makes everything flare up. There are times I wish people just understood that it's not like I want to feel sluggish and tired and like I just can't go any further. I want to be completely awake, completely alert, 100% on top of things and maybe that's why I say yes all the time. Does anyone else do this? When do you put your foot down? Is anyone around you understanding of your CFS or Fibro?
