According to patient and author David Spero, R.N., "All of us tend to push our limits, but we need to save that behavior for times when something really good or important is at stake. Otherwise we wind up with worse symptoms and worsening disease processes. We tend to believe that we can't take a break because we have so much to do, but, in fact, as we get more fatigued our efficiency drops off. It is more effective to take breaks and come back refreshed." (Source: The Art of Getting Well: A Five-Step Plan for Maximizing Health When You Have a Chronic Illness, by David Spero, R.N.
