Learn to say "No"

I'm up and running (well, not running; walking) again, although I still feel like I'm running on empty.

Right now, I have no choice but to keep going. My thesis submission date is approaching fast, and my first draft isn't complete. I just keep telling myself I can rest when my uni semester is over.

In the meantime, I've learnt to say "No". Like many CFS patients, I'm one of those over-committed over-achievers; I try to do far too much with too little time. On top of that, I find it difficult to say "No" when people more of me.

But at busy times like this, I simply have to.
