o.k i am in a predicament .
I work as a preschool deputy and i work 23.5 hours a week and additional turn taking to do the shopping and i visit the library to borrow resources every 5 weeks .
For quite a while i have found working these hours a bit of a struggle but have managed it and have even thought in the past of reducing my hours to 19 hrs to have a day off in the week.
Anyway, this week has been extremely difficult having one of my days being an inset day which lasted from 9.30 to 4.15. I was so tired that when i came home, and looked at what needed doing i just felt overwhelmed and burst into tears and was in so much pain.
I ended up doing two more days and went sick yesterday and today.
Now i have realised that i need to cut back where i can ...... but starting next week we will be having a meeting friday after work , every two weeks and now i am dreading it, i know working all day is just too much for me but i know we need to have planning etc meetings, but every two weeks !!!???
Everyone i work with are lovely and wouldnt bat an eyelid at staying behind but i really dont want to !!!!!!!!!!!!
i cant cope with any extra !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! help !!!! what can i say !!!???????????
I knew these meetings were going to happen and although i wasnt keen i didnt say anything !
