Five days ago, I went home from work and collapsed on the couch. And I mean, I was out. No energy, no appetite, my body just went into complete shutdown mode. No fever, no aches, just exhaustion. It felt like when I had mono in college, but I'm 60 and that's not supposed to be a possibility at my age. I struggled to eat about 4 bites of soup a day. I pretty much laid there 24/7 until this afternoon.

Today I was able to go to work a few hours, but now I'm really weak from not eating enough and I feel dehydrated. I just want to feel okay again. Just not hungry, just like when I had mono. I slept for 6 weeks back then.

I'm sure this is caused by stress and overwork. Been working 7 days a week in our business for two months plus business trips plus a variety of other major stresses - death in family, family moving in with us, crazy violent neighbor, two small claims cases, granddaughter in and out of psych facility, plus more. I've stayed positive through all of this, continued my role as encourager and fixer and I have a strong support group of family and friends. And typically I sleep very well, 8 hours a night. I don't have any health issues and I'm not on any meds. Yep, I thought I was invincible.

Anyone else ever go through something like this? Any suggestions on getting my strength back?
Don't blame this on your work. It's your drama that did it.

Lock your door. Turn off your phone and relax for a couple of days. You'll be fine. Or, take a trip to the local casino and have a little adult fun gambling. Let somebody else deal with the drama for a while.
