Like the title says; I had a busy weekend. The Efteling went better than expected. There were a few things stressing me out, mainly keeping track of everyone and everything around me, but besides that I was fine. We had a lot of fun and even celebrated the birthday of one of the Chill Aut board members. He got some presents from Chill Aut and I bought him a nice lunch. We also sang for him.
My sister and I both had a lot of people around us for the whole day. That’s a lot of fun, but by the end of the day we really needed some time to process it all. So instead of just going home (where there’ll be more people around us), I took my sister for a nice Chinese dinner. This was very nice and got us to calm down a bit.
Today is Mother’s Day and we prepared for a High Tea all week, so today was the day to bring it all out and finish baking some things. My mum was happily surprised and thanked us for it. We all enjoyed the High Tea. There’s still some on the table, since we always seem to make too much when we want a special meal.
Yesterday and today proved to be a lot, after not having felt well on Friday. I took it easy all the time, but it was still too much. I’m now laying down on the couch while I write this, because I’ve got work tomorrow. Fun things are nice, but I always have to pay for it with feeling terrible because of my Chronic Fatigue. I might even crawl into bed for an hour in a few minutes.
Today I don’t really have a big point to make or anything, it’s just an update, because I’m too tired. Maybe I’ll come up with something more interesting tomorrow.
By the way, I’ve been talking mainly about my Asperger’s Syndrome and less about my Chronic Fatigue. This is not because my Asperger’s is a bigger issue. Instead, it’s the other way around. I see my Chronic Fatigue as a handicap, I see my Asperger’s as simply a different way of thinking/being/living, which can be both good and bad, as is anything in life. The only reason I focus more on my Asperger’s, is simply because that’s what my blog is about. My Chronic Fatigue only gets mentioned, because it influences everything I do and also how well I can deal with things.
I’m wondering if I should keep going this way, or make a separate blog about my Chronic Fatigue, or just make this a blog about my Asperger’s AND my Chronic Fatigue. Would anyone even be interested in hearing about my Chronic Fatigue? I feel it might just be writing a lot about how tired I am and how much pain I’m in. I don’t know. I’ll think about it.
