New mindset

Sunday, January 30, 2011

Today I finally decided that I am not going to let my job keep affecting my physical and emotional health. I gained weight and have been getting sick and not getting much sleep due to all of the stress. But, I have made a decision that has lightened my soul after over a year of torment.

I am on the road back.

    Thank you for your comments and support. It is hard sometimes to put myself first since I have so many responsibilities but if I don't my PhD classes will continue to suffer and so will my health I can't give all I have to everything and everyone else.

    I'm sorry to hear work is really getting to you. Unfortunately, I understand all too well how that can happen. Please remember to put yourself first and not let your job be so all-consuming. Take some time for fun, too. I wish I had more words of wisdom to share and some that would make a difference. It sounds like you are figuring out what you need to do. Take care.

    As a teacher, it is so hard not to let everything affect your life. My second year of teaching I got a new principal and she demanded alot of me as a second year teacher and expecting me to mentor the rest of the building. I ended up with alot of stomach problems. I finally got it figured out and am on daily meds. I lost alot of weight, not in a good way, and then gained it back and more from stress eating. As of last Monday, I started over and am not letting work affect me either.
    Good luck! You can do it! emoticon
