I feel so run down. I've had several bad days at the new job. I've made some mistakes, due to just not knowing everything yet. And several of the people have been short with me. I'm very sensitive, and do not take raised voices, or harsh criticism well. Especially when it's due to misunderstanding, or just not knowing something. After work I went and bought a soda, came home and had a good cry and a nap.

Besides that, I've been sick for nearly a month now. My lungs were giving me fits, then I started a new medicine which made me feel absolutely horrible, now I've got a bad head cold. Sigh. I just want to feel like myself again.

The fencing guy did come out. He can't start until two weekends from now. And then it takes at least a week to finish. So it won't be done until December. Also he raised his prices a bit, so now I need to come up with another $500. Which is really going to push my goals back even farther.

I get easily stressed and flustered, so all these things that have come up are really dragging me down. Today I need to be working on my web design clients, but I would much rather just lay around and relax on my "day off." It's been hard to get motivated, or focused to get anything done.

    Aw, take good care of yourself. I hope that you feel better soon. Working with critical people can be a challenge. It is easy to say to not internalize, but it can really make you feel bad about things.

    {{{Hugs}}} all these challenges are so much harder to cope with when you're not feeling well and have a horrid head cold. Hope you'll give yourself a day off, set the goals aside for a few hours and look after yourself. Do whatever you can to relieve cold's discomfort, put on some music and take a nap. Sleep helps

    Hoping you feel better soon! And if not a day off, what about watching a funny movie or some other 1-2 hr destress activity?

    Sorry you're having a rough go of it.

    I second the suggestion for a nap. When you are sick it makes everything that much harder.

    Ugh, I feel you! I'm sure my illness is nowhere as bad as yours, but it's been dragging on for 2 weeks now and I'm feeling very self-pitying. And trying to do just enough work to not get super behind!
