The past few weeks, I’ve been struggling with exhaustion. I constantly need to sleep. I feel such disappointment in myself when I need to take time to rest. I feel like I am failing as a mother and as a partner. There is so much to be done in the house. So much time that I am missing because I’m sleeping or trying to sleep. Unfortunately, I need to take the time to rest.
What is most frustrating is that I used to be like other people. I used to have a regular life. Weekends used to be wonderful, filled with activities. I still had plenty of energy and time to get things done and do them well.
Now, I feel constantly frustrated at myself. I am unable to do things the same or how I would like to. It is truly hurtful to compare what used to be and what is now.
