I cannot begin to tell you how tired I am. I do home health aide work as an LNA. I am currently working for 2 companies and doing a private duty case.
I'm so tired I can't even remember how to use a computer.
Monday is my day off from everything except my private duty case. I work with him from 7-9am and then in the evening every day. We never go to bed before 11:30 and now that the Celtics are in the playoffs, some nights it is 12:30 or 1:00. He has MS and because he gets too stiff if he stays in bed too long, I am always up by 6:30 so I can help him at 7:00. Not much sleep. On Tuesday through Sunday I work anywhere from 5 to 12 hours a day with other clients in the hours between when I'm with my private duty case. I also have to pick my son up from work four mornings a week. His job is 47 miles from where I am in the morning, so it adds a couple of hours to my already busy day. Some nights I also have to take him to work if my sister-in-law is not available.
My private case is going to Milwaukee for three days in July. I am looking forward to the extra sleep. I swear that if I sit down for more than a few minutes I fall asleep.

    I'm with CartoonB... you need some time off! I'm not a good example of how to DO that... but I do appreciate those that do.
    Milwaukee??? I lived in Greenfield back in the late 70's and early 80's. Loved Brady street days back then...

    Wow! You work too hard and your hours are too long! I hope you can figure out a way to get more time off so that you can rest!
