I thought I had been having good days, boy, did I call it wrong. I had been feeling good and today went back to work from Christmas break and boss informs me that she wants to add more duties (with no more pay). I am maxed out now! After a long discussion with her I came home feeling so overloaded and used up and I just wanted to die. can she not see how much I do now. There is just not enough of me to go around! Now I am hurting, my back is killing me, my hands and feet are swelling, I feel feverish and feels very much like a flare. Does anyone ever flare after emotional stress?
