As you know I am working on putting together a candida info site based on this blog. I know its hard to find the info that you may need and it can take ages to read all the posts. Pulling together all the information in an easy to use website is a big project and I didnt realise how much work it would be! But I am determined to complete it. But I’ve been foolishly pushing myself too hard. I work full time and in the evenings I have been working on the site. I have been having a break over the weekends but I’ve been so tired that taking Saturday and Sunday off didnt seem to do much to restore my energy.
I have basically forgotten one of the most important lessons that I’ve learnt over the years – listen to your body. I kept thinking that as I was enjoying the process of sorting the information and its not really ‘work’ that it was just like enjoying a hobby. Yeah right! Its still working on the pc which was what I do all day long.
Unsurprisingly my back has been aching and finally on Sunday I became ill. It was my body’s way of saying, “you’ve been ignoring me so now I’m going to make sure you listen”. I’m disappointed with myself for getting too carried away with my new project and not pacing myself. Now I’m worried that if my immune system is too low the candida may return so I’m resting and sleeping as much as I can. Its been a sharp wake up call.
