Don't take it personally

So remember the Spoon Theory? Of course you read it, right?
Well unfortunately spoons also represent mental energy and emotional energy...I have always considered myself very good at communication, at keeping up correspondence and returning phone calls and emails.
I used to be very good at it.

Nowadays I have a lot of trouble keeping up with it all. 
I forget that people have called me if I don't write it down.
My eyes don't work enough hours in the day for me to respond to all my emails. 
Or I have a series of bad days where I am in a lot of pain and the thought of carrying on a normal conversation with anyone seems nearly impossible.

So please don't take it personally if you don't hear from me promptly.
I know how behind I am on my emails...and my phone calls...and hanging out with friends.
But I do the best I can on any given day.
That is all any of us can do, right? :-)
