That's given me a spike of stress on top of what I already had. I am juggling full-time work in a really relentless admin job, helping her look for work, responsibility for all house-related stuff, trying to contribute to housework fairly
Also having to be amateur counsellor for my wife because her mental health is too bad to face COVID fears to start counselling or to try it online T_T it is exhausting, utterly exhausting. I know she needs my support and I want to give it!
Just feeling like I am stretched so thin, and never really able to rest. I am also trying to develop alternative work options but that requires time and energy I don't have :(
My life has been taking jobs I could get even when I didn't want them, so I have to admit it's frustrating to see my wife wanting a job but so reluctant to even look at temping, freelancing online etc. to at least fill some time during COVID
So frustrating and tiring, I get where you're coming from.
Sweet dreams John
My new job is on hold too John, it's not easy when you have to ensure you can keep a roof over your head. Difficult times.
Sorry to hear that Penelope, hope things will work out for you soon *hugs*
