One of the most bothersome parts of TBI is the irritability that comes when I’m foggy and tired. Like today. And last night.
I have had a really long and full week. I wasn’t expecting it to be as challenging as it has been — a lot of people have been out of the office at a conference, so it’s been quiet. Kind of.
Lots of stuff has “blown up”, though. And that hasn’t been good. I’m taking it personally, when projects don’t go as planned, even though there are whole teams of people not bothering to pay attention, these days.
So, that’s been exciting. And tiring.
Meanwhile, at home, things have been wearing, as well. I don’t get a break, when I get home. It’s more work. Everything feels like work.
Of course, if I can get some extra rest, it’s fine. But that hasn’t been happening. If anything, I’ve had earlier days than usual, lately, and that’s been taking a toll, as well.
The toll is angry outbursts.
Getting more tweaked about things that don’t normally bother me.
Blowing things out of proportion.
And then feeling terrible about myself, because I couldn’t keep my cool.
So, I’ll try again today. Take a nap later.
And keep going.
