After a pretty traumatic and stressful first 2 days back at work, yesterday and today have been marked more by my extreme fatigue, fragility and lack of focus and concentration.
I managed to get through the day yesterday, but then promptly fell asleep on the sofa between 5.30pm and 8pm and woke up to find hubby returned from work and eating a sandwich instead of the dinner I had promised to cook!
I still had an early night and was still tired when I woke up this morning. Fatigue is horrible as energy levels are low and concentration levels even worse. I can’t wait until the weekend when I can have a proper rest and hopefully build up some resilience ready for next week. It has to be steady progress rather than trying to rush the recovery but I am so depleted that I have to accept this and I carry on plodding on, slow but sure.
You made it through the day. Good for you!
Thank you! Every day I arrive home safe and sound, if shattered, is an achievement! 😀
Hugs, like prisoners waiting to be released we mark off the days of “I survived that one.” Hoping you get the rest to restore your strength. Cool hubby for fixing a sandwich so you could sleep. 🙂
Thank you- Yes I am building up the notches on the door for every day I return/get up! Yes, cool hubby and we enjoyed the dinner all the more on Thursday evening! 🙂
