Seriously. I am so tired. It’s a don’t wanna get out of bed, ass dragging, bone tired, kind of tired. No, I am not depressed. I have strong urges to do things and am still enjoying life.
I just hurt everywhere. I know if I go do anything I will pay for it. I have been running for the past two weeks straight, between blog work, regular work, web design work, ChiTag, kids and life in general. I got behind in work because it’s that time of year when the kids are in full swing in school, they are also getting sick which makes everything stop. I caught some of it and it really hits me hard now.
It’s really hard being stuck in a body that won’t keep up with your mind or your 4 year old for that matter. I am trying to build a business that requires a lot of my attention and I don’t always have the energy to pay it the attention it needs. It’s hard to run code when your eyes are blurry. I still do it, and I do it well, just not at the speed that I would like. I have so much to do over the next 2 1/2 weeks because the kids will then be on vacation and I really like to spend that time with them.
So my question is…how do you cope? I know all mothers and fathers face this same sort of dilemma, whether you have an illness or not. How do you shake the never ending feeling of being overwhelmed? I have been a mother for 14 years now and I still haven’t found the answer. If you have multiple children like I do, how do you make sure they are all getting your undivided attention? And if you have a illness like me, how do you give that attention with out sacrificing your health?
I am going to try and shake it and enjoy the week. My daughter’s birthday is this week and my 15 year marriage anniversary is on Wednesday. Positives.
