I saw this posted on Instagram and last night as I was moody, having a horrible time understanding and navigating normal, simpler tasks and having 2 nights of not good sleep I was reminded of this post I saw on Instagram by joy.energy.time and I was like that’s it, burnout.
I reflected back on the last 3-4 days in my journal I keep and I had been reading a lot. I had done my peloton a couple of times, one a 45 min class and one a 30 minute. I went to bed on Tuesday at 11pm, normally I go at 9pm latest. I skipped a nap. I had soda one day. I have just exhausted my body and brain. All the things in the picture above I have been dealing with for the last 3 days.
Someday I will really learn to pace myself and not constantly overdo things because I think I can do it. Hopefully tonight I will get good sleep. Sleep is precious to me now and my body and brain so need it. Last night my husband said I was like a drunk person the way I was acting.
Nope, just a burnt out and exhausted person and a brain injury is not required for that, it just adds to it.
