    I can relate to The Spoon Theory. I was forever the do all self sufficient Alaskan gal. I never needed to ask for help. Why, that would mean you're slacking! Now I realize I can't do it all and I realize I have to pick and choose my battles. Today I might not clean up the yard but I can get dishes and laundry done. Today I will get the vacuuming done but not the dusting. My biggest hurdle is at work. I work in a boarding kennel and that means 6-9 hours on my feet walking and playing with dogs. When I get fatigued I have to keep going. I have talked to the boss about fatigue and he is understanding and will delegate my work load to other employees. Still, a 9 hour work day on my feet is asking a lot. Realizing that you can't do it all is humbling and it's a lesson I had to learn the hard way.

    my husband was the same way, he would not even read up on Lupus until I was diagnosed.. and even now I am not sure how much he really looked up or read on it.
