I do take plenty of breaks but it doesnt take long for me to be right where I was. I cannot hardly stand the house to get bad. No one to help.

I have the same problems...have pulmonary lung fibrosis.....lungs not getting enough oxygen when you over exert yourself...take plenty of rests in between what you are trying to do....

Vacuuming or mopping makes me terribly sob and very tired. I break out in a sweat, especially my head. I vacuumed yesterday and was wiped out rest of day. Going grocery shopping does the same thing. But, I've learned to only do one thing like that in a day.

Hi Linda i never push myself to do more than what my mental and body can handle. I do not work anymore so at least that’s a plus and i have adjusted to my finances as i only live off my disability check. I don’t have a schedule of my routine cleaning or errands to do i roll with the punches and have been less stress and anxious ever since this approach. Our chronic illness can make us feel, tired, fatigue, anxious and out of breath at times. I advise you to take it easy and step at a time. 🙏🏻

I dont recover overnight either. But after i overexert myself i cant sleep that night so therefore the next day is blowed. I used the duse mop on my living room yesterday and got so out of breath and weak. I thought i was going to pass out. Cant sleep tonight so tomorrow will be blowed.
