Burnout

Woke up this morning feeling tired. I think its the compounded lack of sleep plus the high brain cell burn rate over the last couple of weeks. Each and every single thing i have to think about will bug me badly. Every SMS i receive makes me wanna throw my phone at someone.

Could not drive to church and even during the service i felt unwell. Then at mid afternoon, my mind and body gave up. I felt horrible. My body stopped responding me. I had to head home.

Stumbled to bed… and crashed. Not sure what happened after that. Only remembered my wife caring for me.

I thank God for my wife constantly, she somehow managed to nurse me back to health with ginger water and a soothing medicated backrub. Ready to get back to work on monday for another week.
