Getting out of bed

I find it hard to get out of bed, shower, get dressed for the day. I just want to sleep little longer. I need coffee. I dread the long day of office work and loud chatter. Help me Jesus.

I have to focus on my work and why I’m there to get through. I’m there for myself, to help the residents and to earn money for our survival. That’s it. I may dread it some days but that’s usually because I get little sleep and know I will be on my feet and running up and down the halls for 12 long hours and sometimes longer. I just try to focus on the work and let the rest go. Wishing you peace of mind! 🙂🌷🙂

How much sleep do you get every night? Is it good, restful sleep? I've been working with my psychiatrist a lot on the sleep factor lately because she thinks my worsening anxiety and depression are partially due to not enough good sleep. I feel more emotionally balanced when I get adequate sleep, and when I don't get sleep, I'm very anxious and easily thrown off-balance. Do you have a job you hate? That might also be the issue!

Yes I hate my job. I have to get up 5am. Plus I live alone and not motivated for the day. I have been taking Ambien because body can't sleep on it's on.
