Struggling with extremely itchy skin today. Cotton mouth is still an issue so I’ve been chugging water. When I got home, I felt exhausted and accidentally took a 2.5hr nap.
Sometimes I don’t feel like I’m up to running a household. I work at least 9hrs a day 5+days a week. I have fibromyalgia and RA. I wake up at 5 or 6A every morning, do chores, get the kids ready, pack lunch, work all day, come home, do more chores, prepare dinner, help with homework, sign papers, pay bills, do more chores yet, and – if I’m lucky – to go bed around 11P. Some days, like today when I took a 2.5hr nap, I feel like I just can’t hack it as a parent. Let alone the head-of-household-bread-winning-home-owning adult.
The fan in the heat pump that runs our air conditioner died this evening as well. Perhaps that’s contributing to my sense of responsibility overwhelm. At least it’s not hot tonight. Tomorrow’s forecast is 96F, however.
