Stress Reactions

I hate to say it but I’m quite happy my poor little Poka Bear’s sick today.  I really need this time at home.

Work has been uber-stressful for a while and it’s only getting worse.  I’ve been dragging myself in sick for months.  The stress has killed my imune system.  I’ve been getting headaches all the time and drugs no longer do anything for them.  My back’s a gnarly mess of knots even my massage therapist boyfriend can’t quite get rid of.  I’ve been getting heartburn too.

So it’s good to be home.  PB’s coloring in the kitchen, he seems to be doing much better.  I get to hang out with my computer for a while.  We’re loading music on the Nano.  I’m wearing old sweats and sipping coffee.  And refusing to think about work.

About m

My ego wants to think I'm a writer but my heart knows I'm just another one of God's Kids who sometimes has words to say. 2 human kids and 3 feline kids call me Mom. Or Mooooooom. Or mewom, depending which you ask. I'm kinda-sorta busy being a student again; this time I signed myself up for a bizarre torture known as Graduate School. Theoretically in 4ish years I'll have earned some more nice letters to put with my name. Let's face it, I'm addicted to learning and probably need rehab to restore me to sanity and remove the obsession to read books. I don't remember what free time is but I think I like to spend it sleeping or playing in the mud on a river bank.

    Hi… I’m a fellow single mom… I know how the work/stress/health thing goes. i actually caused myself a problem with my vision due to stress! just wanted to tell you to hang in there; i know there must be lots of us out here handling the tremendous stress of work (especially for a lousy company or boss) and being a single mom.
