I'm sorry that we don't have a better relationship. I spend so much time doing everything but resting, that it seems I don't know you well at all anymore. I'm slowly working on this. I want to be better. I don't want to go so long without you. I know I need to take a little time out from my busy schedule so I can feel better. I know that without you I won't be able to last much longer.
I know that my knee pain is due to not listening to my body's needs and seeking you out more. I know my constant exhaustion is from running away from you for fear that people will think me too weak. I know that I need to spend long weekends with you, and maybe take a vacation once in a while.
I'm committed to making this work.
