It’s good to hear that parenting isn’t as disruptive as migraines. But the loss of flexibility would be really hard – I don’t think I could have migraines AND a kid!
I didn’t mention downtime explicitly, but it’s something I struggle with. I feel ok with downtime that’s cooking or yoga or playing piano, but less so with downtime that’s stuff like reading silly novels, gardening, or watching Star Trek. Even though I really enjoy these things and find them restorative, I feel guilty for giving myself time for them. Guess I’ll have to work on that!
