is it normal to be this exhausted each week after work or even during working hrs?
I work 45 - 50 hrs each week in Child Care and I really love my job but I am soo tired each day its crazy. If I sit down for 2 mins then I am worried that I might fall asleep at work.
I also don't get any lunch or tea breaks as I eat with the children at work.
I get 7,5-8 hrs sleep a night and thought it should be enough but when my alarm goes off in the morning its always when I am in a really deep sleep.
Guess I need an extra hrs sleep to feel better.
The thing is I come home at 6 pm at night, cook dinner, sit down for 30 -45 mins and watch TV with my partner and then I clean up the kitchen & make sandwiches for the next day, have a shower and by the time I am in bed its around 10-10.30 pm. Then I read a bit and get some sleep. I wake up at 6.50 am every day.
I wonder if I should work less hrs as up to 50 hrs seems a lot plus I drive 30 mins to work and 30 mins back home so I am out of the house for 55 hrs each week.
Has anyone any idea what I could do? I am absolutely exhausted we also are TTC and I am so tired.
I wonder if I should cut down the hrs but its impossible in my current job.
Is anyone out there suffering with this as well?
