Working full time

Well, it hasnt been going too well with working full time and taking care of house and children. I ran for 2 weeks straight, shopping and cleaning on weekends. Oh, and yard work. Last night i almost completely collapsed. I couldnt get off the couch for an hour or so. I could barely drag by butt upstairs to bed. I am going in one more day full time and going to have to cut my hours. Its a temp job, so i thought i was doing it for a week only. As usual, temp agencies dont listen when i said i could only do full time for a week or two. I am now in week 3. Felt like throwing up last night, and feel the same this morning. Made a beet, pear and apple smoothie. Dont feel any better. Ugh! Hope i can get through the day.

Hi Natura

I am so genuinely sorry to read that you are suffering and struggling so much as a result of working full time hours, and I sincerely hope that you can get this sorted with your agency. Please take care of yourself.

All my hopes and dreams for you

Thanks ken...thought i sorted it out today. Company was willng to let me work 4 days, 5 hr days. Then i got a call from temp agency that they ended the contract. I am a little upset, but relieved that i wont be exhausted again. I now know what i can handle. I wasnt sure. i was trying to be strong. No one see's how i feel on the inside. And for some reason i keep comparing myself to my sisters that are older than me and working full time. I have not let myself off the hook for not working. I do a lot around the home, but still feel bad i cant contribute.

Worked part time last week. Only 10 hrs. Exhausted again. I worked 5 hrs today, falling asleep driving home because i was awake at 3:30 am last night. Ugh! Made it home. Slept for 2 hrs. Still tired, but able to cook dinner. I am working 5 hrs tomorrow. Will see how I do. I am a little upset how I seem to be getting more and more tired.

I dont know how i can work more than 10 hrs a week. People think i look fine, and dont understand.

Going to Disney soon and worried about my energy levels and keeping up with the family.

I am so upset. I have always been a very active person, and i am not exercising because i am too tired.
