Feeling a little stressed about night shift

Jul 31, 2016 11:16 PM

I'm feeling a bit stressed about night shift tonight, I want to nap to prepare but my body won't let me.
Pain has increased since yesterday and if I wasnt just on the couch doing nothing I'd be smashing the painkillers - not that they do a lot.
I feel like I'm making myself more sore by laying around but I can't find the energy to get off the couch either.
Sigh
I wonder if this is going to get worse. Not knowing what's happening is really hard.

Tonight has been really hard. I'm almost in tears I just want to stop! Let me go home to bed!

Sorry I have no one else to cry to as it's just after 6am

Well, last night was a nightmare I only got to sit down for ten minutes of my 9 hour shift and there were so many awful things I had to do. There may have been tears. But i made it, all the way to the end, and I didnt die.

Last one tonight, I can get through this too.

Thank you! I made it through all my shifts but I'm definitely out for the count now, I'm taking a couch day.
