I work too much for the way I feel which I know needs to change. However I am so frustrated with people saying things like 'how did you forget that' or 'you're really not with it today' or 'calm down it's not a big deal'. I can't multi task very much now, I have to concentrate so hard on things because I feel I'm trying so hard to push past my exhaustion that it's hard to focus on much else! It's like I'm in a different place half the time!
Anyone understand this feeling?
Had a bad day at work ! 😫
Yes I understand completely! I am currently writing my PhD thesis and I had a couple of days this week where I just couldn't put a sentence together. I couldn't even understand the checklist I'd written down.
It's such an awful illness and it's so hard to explain to others - I'm already at a disadvantage at work because I'm female in a male-dominated lab so I can't speak to anyone there about being unwell because I'd have no hope of being taken seriously in my future career!
