I’ve been struggling to get anything done this week and some of the tips in this thread have been really helpful. Yesterday I spent half the day on the couch feeling awful, before I had a spurt of energy in the evening. I managed to get some meaningful work done in that time and it made me feel a lot better about my day.
One thing I wanted to add is the effect that calls and meetings have on me. I try to schedule meetings which aren’t too intellectually challenging during my down times, as they really suck my energy which makes my neurological symptoms far worse. I don’t want to spend precious energy on them. If I have important calls, I schedule them early, as I know that I won’t be able to engage in difficult discussions later in the day.
I think for those of us with neurological symptoms, interactions with others can be really challenging and draining.
