I have always been too hard on myself.  Like many women of today, I bought into the you-can-have-it-all lie.  I believed I could have it all even if it wasn’t all at once.  Some days it’s all I can do to get out of bed.  Self care is hard for me at times.  It may be because of the illness, I don’t know.  I think I just need to lower my expectations.  I’ve decided instead of referring to self care as “the bare minimum”, I will call it “the least I can do for myself.”  It may not be much different, but it sounds better somehow.  More positive.  And that’s what I think I need.
