I’ll Confess, I Have Been Beaten Down

Beaten down by the thing I call my Job. Over a year ago my small office environment changed. My employer made cuts leaving me a 2 person office instead of 3. As you can imagine, the workflow doubled. Then there were more cuts within the company, and more work flowed my way. Let’s just say, I’ve been maxed out for quite some time.

I finally broke

It has gotten so bad that I dread going to work and almost walked out a few times. I was so grumpy by the time I got home; I couldn’t stand myself. How could I possibly expect Cranky and Bean to understand? When it came to bedtime, I couldn’t shut off my brain causing me more loss of sleep. I had to seek help!

Calling Dr. Feelgood

I’m so thankful that I have an understanding doctor who is concerned about my well-being. Not only does he treat me physically but he also serves as a therapist. He suggested an anti-anxiety medication to help me sleep and get through my day. A temporary fix but one that is very welcomed. It was also suggested that I take a break from my blogging.

I'll confess, I've been beaten down

If you recall, not too long ago Cranky lost his job thus prompting me to obtain affiliates to monetize my site. This in conjunction with the stress from work through me overboard. Perhaps a sabbatical from my blog isn’t necessarily what is needed but maybe eliminating the pressure to monetize is. I’ve always found blogging therapeutic and don’t think I could just give it up. However, I do feel the need to remove the stress of the Affiliate programs for now. Cranky is back to work, and the need is not so great that I need to slam you with products after products posts.

A mini-sabbatical

I have decided that it is in my best interest to take a bit of time off, effective immediately. I will still be in cyberland with you but just not blog hopping for a week. I am also working on a new short story and would like to get it published before summer so this break will help me get grounded.
