So thought I'd be clever an started back to work yesterday-too soon I hear you say..... Yes you are correct but as always I know better and boy do I regret it now - I'm soooo tired I could cry. Any tips to either a) help the tiredness or b) make me less of a know it all!! :roll:

    It's all too easy to over-estimate our capabilities at times and to under-estimate how long it takes our bodies to fully recover from stuff. Remember and try to learn from it. (Also do as I say, not as I do :wink: )
    If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving definitely isn't for you.

    We all misjudge things (and in my case not only once). Now I routinely err on the side of caution, I don't get much done on a daily basis but I don't wear myself by not doing not very much! DD

    a) There's nothing you can do except go to bed early (8.30/9pm) and get lots of sleep.
    b) Nothing you can do!

    How long were you off work? I went back after 6 weeks, to just a sit down desk job, and I was exhausted. Suddenly having 8 hours a day where I couldn't do what I wanted, and having to concentrate etc was awful, but a week or so later of early nights I was back into things (really behind on TV viewing though!)

    You need to learn to listen to your body, it will tell you when it's starting to get tired and needs a break or rest. We all push past our body warning it's tired and over do it. While at work give yourself a few 10-15mins breaks if you can just to have a coffee or just stop and rest. That way you woun't burn yourself out. Hope that helps!

    Its very difficult to do anything let alone manage yourself or get enthusiastic about anything. You can cut yourself some slack, you've been hit difficult and are still pulling but you should try and quit doing nothing before it becomes schedule.
