Maybe I overdid it a bit :(

    Just realized that I did the following already this year:
    1. Changed jobs when I didn't want to and now work much harder for the same pay.
    2. Paid for a trip for 4 to Puerto Rico to attend my brothers wedding with less than two months notice.
    3. Spent said trip in a house full of family. In particular my very difficult aunt, her very difficult friend, and my very difficult mom and Difficult Child. Top that off with my father who I haven't been very happy with for a while now.
    4. Took in a foster child for 3-4 weeks and got her to multiple court dates and doctor appointments.
    5. Best friend and family moved to the other end of the country.

    Maybe there is a reason I am irritable and stressed right now? I have jumped through a ton of hoops already this year. I know that mental health wise I needed the medication change I got this morning but maybe I also have a right to be worn out from dealing with all this drama?

    Dang I need a nap :)

    Yes you do!

    It's SO hard to look after ourselves. But we have to... somehow.
