As mentioned in a previous blog post, I began my graduated return to work at Great-West Life. It's been going well. I'm able to remember some things, so that's amazing.
The problem I keep running into is my fatigue level.
I started working for 2 hours on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, but had to stay at that level longer than was anticipated. I would work (or rather: have training) for the two hours, get home on the bus, and sleep for 3 or 4 hours.
It was tough to fit in my other responsibilities. Namely housework, and other errands such as counselling and lawyer meetings (separating from Troy).
For housework, I try to help my parents since I am living with them again till I can find a new home. My Mom is also rather allergic to dogs and quite allergic to cats, so I'm always vacuuming or dusting.
My parents are not vegan, and I do much of my own cooking, meal planning and grocery shopping. Although, they are eating more whole foods, so that makes me happy.
Back to work!
I'm now working three hours. I think I'll try to keep it at that level for a couple more weeks before increasing it again.
I need to take four hours of driving lessons before I can take the road test. I'd like to get that taken care of, before I'm working more.
My intention was to blog more regularly again, but it does get tricky with my return to work (we're always pushing my fatigue-level), lawyer and mediation visits, counselling, driving lessons, and regular life stuff.
Life does get overwhelming.
