I’m feeling miserable and the work is just piling up around me. I’ve been feeling sick this week and it just keeps getting worse. I have a fever and the worst sore throat I’ve had since I had mono is college. I know it’s not possible to get mono again, but I feel like there couldn’t be anything else that could make me feel this bad. My voice is much worse than it was on the day I took the day off work a few weeks ago, I have a dry, wheezing cough, it hurts to whisper and despite it all, I forced myself to go to the zoo today with my students. (I promised a trip to the zoo for three of my students.) I didn’t enjoy it as much as I should have because I was feeling under the weather.
I have tons of grading to do, a monthly plan, lesson plans and homework packets all to still do this weekend. I just got an e-mail from my PD and although polite, is making me fume with anger because I am so pissed because I feel myself working myself sick, literally, and when he says I need to “re-prioritize” in order to do everything the TFA way and it makes me so so angry. What am I going to re-prioritize? Personal hygiene? Sleep? I’m already not eating much at all. Thankfully I have my husband to do all the housework, laundry, grocery shopping and cooking.
