P.J.’s to work?

P.J.’s to work?

I have gone almost 3 weeks without a flare. I type this holding my breath. I have been forewarned by my Daughter and a friend that I should nicely put “bite my tongue” – back to the whole jinxing thing. I will just try to type this holding my breath and crossing my fingers.
This isn’t saying that I have been without pain. I have – and by the end of the day (which is 8:30 bedtime) – I am beyond exhausted and have needed a heating pad.
Today – I woke up (5 a.m.), made blueberry muffins, went to work: worked-8 hours (short day), went swimming, dinner, homework (her’s not mine) and dishes.
I walked in the door at 6:00 p.m. – Went straight into the bedroom – and changed into my P.J.’s.
Daughter looked at me and said – “you are in your P.J.’s already?”
If given the option – I would wear my PJ’s to work.
It is just so darn hard to get out of the bed in the a.m. – this past weekend – I slept 10 hours straight – with no meds to help. Felt fantastic.
There is something comfy and reassuring about soft warm p.j.’s, a blanket and a curling up in ”my chair”.
I have always been told that if you get up and get dressed you will feel better. I have always lived by that. I can be sick with the flu and still change at least into sweat pants, brush my hair, brush my teeth.
I read about all of the chronic pain suffererers that spend all day in bed or their chair. They never change out of their p.j.’s.
It makes me think… which makes you feel better? Being comfy? or making yourself get up?
I personally have decided to change my views – I am going for comfy.
