Crook, tired and stressed

9:02 PM Edit This 1 Comment »
Just after lunch yesterday (Wed) I started feeling quite ill. All headachey, like I could just put my head down on my desk and fall asleep right then and there, throat a bit swollen and sore. Came home early and went to bed pretty much straight away, slept until 7.30ish when the girls called me for dinner. I didn't want to get up, but had to of course. The girls reckoned if I didn't get up now, I would wake up in the early hours and not be able to go back to sleep......WRONG!

I should have listened to my body, I couldn't get back to sleep no matter what I did, the clock ticked away and the last time I glanced at it I think it was somewhere around 3.30am!!!

I got up a few times, had some cheese, 'cause I read somewhere that it's got some tripto something or other that helps you sleep - another excuse for a binge - but it either did the trick, or my body just exhausted itself! I slept in this morning and came into work late - I am so grateful for such a wonderful team and boss, they're so understanding!

Plus, had two meetings I had to attend this afternoon.

I'm so stressed at work at the moment. So much to do, two major projects with very tight deadlines along with the usual day to day helpdesk and policy stuff. I'm feeling quite overwhelmed, I can't help thinking if this myserious illness is stress related.

One of the projects, of which I am in charge of, I am absolutely PANICKING about. I just don't know what I am doing and everyone has all this faith in me and thinks I know what I should be doing. I don't want to let anyone down, my boss, my team, my reputation, myself. It's really getting to me.

All this damn politics drives me NUTS!

Oh well, that's my vent for the day. No exercise, ate "ok" so far.... but as we all know....anything can happen in the wee small hours.....
