I have so many people depending on me to be functioning at my best, but all I want is to lay down and never get up again. I'm just exhausted.
Can I ever relate to this! Between a "recovery", job, marraige, and a large family, I am stretched mighty thin. We need to make taking care of ourselves a priority. We will not do those who depend on us any good if we fall apart. Take a day off, go to the beach or hike a mountain. Or just sleep all day. Do something ALONE
and for just one day don't think about the job, the family, the marriage, bills, and on and on.
"But now old friends are acting strange,
they shake their heads, they say I've changed.
Something's lost but something's gained in living every day
....it's life's illusions I recall, I really don't know life at all. "Joni Mitchell
