Missing work

Jul 18, 2015 8:36 AM

Yesterday I had to call in to work for the first time in a very long time. I woke up still in pain and got dressed and everything. I had tears rolling down my cheeks from exhaustion and I had just woken up. I hate calling into work because it keeps me active (5,000-8,000 steps in five hours) and I enjoy my coworkers. I went back to bed and slept another 8 hours. I am going in today and hopefully going to a movie with my honey later. I want to do so much more but I really just want to sleeeeep.

I'm sorry you're feeling so tired Sweetiepie. It sounds like you may be in a flare of exhaustion. I get that way sometimes myself. Could you rent a movie to watch at home with your honey, just in case you fail asleep? Or maybe take a raincheck and go home and sleep after work? If you can drink some green tea for energy. Hugs and prayers, hoping this exhaustion will soon please! 🙏🌼

Flappy gave you a really brilliant idea. Ditto to that!
