4/27/14 Katie's Healthy Eating Journal: Tuesday

by Katie (Jenny Craig 2009 Poster Girl) 27. April 2013 22:35

I am having a LOT of work stress and the week has only begun.  This has been a considerably difficult school year for me.  I will be glad when it has come to end.  Dealing first with all my endometriosis pain, pregnancy sickness, my Dad's surgery, and then some major work stress...I just feel that I need a little bit of a break.  I am saddened because of all the medical issues in the past year I don't think I've been able to be the best teacher I am capable of being.  Every day it just seems like I'm trying to survive, make it through it, and count the seconds until my head can hit the pillow from exhaustion.  I think I'm somewhat of a perfectionist and it's been extremely hard to come to terms with the facts that I can only do what I can do.  Right now that is actually the best I can do - even though it certainly doesn't feel like it.  I feel like I'm being pulled between trying to be a good wife, daughter, and friend to everyone right now.  Sometimes I get angry because I can't help thinking, "what about me?"  At some point something has got to give.  Unfortunately I think that area may be my friendships right now.  I hope that if they're my true friends, even though they may not be able to identify with what I'm going through, they will still be there for me when I get over this.  As we get older families take precedence and friendships while hopefully are still strong, stay strong despite life's stressors.  I think I definitely need a walk to relax and make some "me" time tonight!
