Well I had a mental break at work ! I’ve worked nonstop for 2 weeks and I just can’t do it anymore so my boss is finally going to find someone to work my shift so I can recover and get some sleep and relax. I can’t keep pretending I’m ok all the time , I never cry at work to me it’s a sign of weakness and I’m not weak I fight my body everyday all day! I just need someone to talk to who truly understands and wants to listen without rude comments... anyways
Be kind to yourself. This is not showing weakness you have a war going on inside your body. Only you know what you are feeling. Allow yourself to recover somewhat and do not be ashamed to ask for help.
Thank you everyone and today I’m home resting and sleeping most of my day and my supervisor realizes I can’t help all the time so he’s pulling from other units to cover me, I work with dementia patients. I thoughts it’s only 4 hrs I’d still have most of my day but I can’t, I guess I just get frustrated cuz a part of me feels like I should be able to do it but, I can’t. At least now I’m on a schedule I can tolerate. Thank you all kindly for chatting with me and helping it means a lot to have somewhere to go where everyone understands
