You heard me right…all of the insanity since returning to work from my Baltimore trip has already caught up to me.
Realized it this morning when I woke up sick.
I am going to go ahead and apologize to everyone now. Since I got back from Baltimore, I have been horrible about sharing my fellow blogger’s posts, liking posts on all of your Flickr feeds and what not. My brain has been so scattered lately with my ADHD being really bad and either I can’t focus on anything for 2 minutes or else I get incredibly hyperfocused on something and lose hours to that. The fatigue has really done a number on me there.
Can we say, “Tiffany, get some damn sleep, girl!”
I’m trying to. Staffing at work has been bad…really bad. While I was on vacation, we received two more resignations and both of those people have moved on to their new jobs. I am working with the rest of the management team to get new people hired. The only problem…our training takes approximately 6 months for most new hires to complete. So while we have filled most of our positions, we don’t have our minimum number of completely trained team members to meet our minimum staffing numbers to deal with the most critical service my team provides.
Sadly, with us only having 50% of our staff fully trained, that means I am working a fair amount of nights and evenings and my body literally doesn’t know when its supposed to sleep anymore. Throw in being paged and woken up in the middle of the night and the call outs we have had lately, its hard to get a good night of rest. Most nights I am averaging about three hours of broken sleep…
And so now Tiff has the cold from hell.
I am working to get the rest I need to get better and get my brain out of this fog of fatigue. I hope you all will forgive me while I work to get there. I’m going to be a bit forgetful and may even miss things between the straight fatigue and the impact that has on my ADHD.
I’m going to get there though. If I can make it through the next seven days, I think I will be in better shape. I have a long weekend coming up. Granted, I will be having some medical tests done on that Thursday and Friday…but at least I know I will have four nights where no one can page me or call for anything as I take care of that and then get my body back in order for that Saturday and Sunday.
With that though, I am going to try to get some sleep. My eyes are finally starting to feel heavy…so I am not going to fight it.
Night, everyone… ♥
