Stressed To Kill.

You have no idea. As I sit here at my desk, its exactly 06h30, its the third morning this week I’ve come in at this time and still I feel like I’m literally buckling under the pressure, the really sick part is that I LOVE it! I absolutely thrive under this kind of pressure, sick hey?

My line of work is very seasonal. Gaming is massive around all the holidays, so I work at a fairly even pace throughout the year, but around Easter, June school holidays and then from September to end December, I work like a demon. This week I felt the Christmas pressure start to build. My to do list has gotten so long I’m actually trying to ignore it because I fear it may bring on a full blown panic attack if I even look at it! My stomach pains and my hands shake. I’ve got so much to do I don’t know where to start! I’ve started getting cramps in my legs at night, so I haven’t had a good nights rest in a few days, I’m thinking it must be stress related as well.

I also think the stress is having an impact on my cycles. Its all rather confusing really, looks like I’m going to be having another very short cycle:

So I’m guessing I won’t be announcing my BFP this cycle either, because I think we may have missed the big O.
Oh well, nothing to do except remind myself to stay calm and not get overwhelmed by the work load.

Wish me luck!

    Hmmm have no idea what the temp chart means… I can’t remember to take my prenatal every day much less take my temperature at the same time every morning. I wouldn’t remember my name if it wasn’t on my name tag!!! Glad you’re getting busy at work, but I really hope the pressure doesn’t hinder your happy baby making :):)

    Busy and loving it – I know what you mean! That cat scares me. Reminds me of my nightmare catholic nun elementary school teacher, sister estelle, having a bad hair day. she always had that look on her face.

    So know what you mean! Hope today was not as stressful for you my friend… but we know that in reality it was 😉

    Hmmm cycle looks good – you did not insert the BD so we don’t *actually* know if you missed O day or not *nudge nudge wink wink* (sorry u know me the eternal optimist)
