I managed to rewrite my new schedule (hereafter called my Life Schedule rather than a Recovery Schedule). I also created a Sick Day schedule, which is stripped down to the 'must accomplish' items, assuming that all other time should be spent resting.
Comprehensive List of Tasks
- grooming = success
- meal (smoothie) = fail
- Spanish = managed to do half of it, with the aide of a cough drop
- meal (1 prep/1 eat) = made soup, ate it
- coping = read from the book How to Be Sick (see previous post)
Medication = I couldn't remember if I took my morning medications or not, and didn't want to take a double dose, so I might have skipped it. Fail here.
Sober / No Compulsions = success
TOTAL SCORE = 6.5/9 = 72% and lots of resting besides
For today's revelations, check out the previous post and what I've learned so far from this book. In a nutshell, illness, even chronic illness, isn't just the end of life as you know it; it's the beginning of a whole new life yet to discover. Take care of yourselves.
