Janet Posted August 1, 2008 Share Posted August 1, 2008 Hi All Have finally had to come to a decision about life, work balance. As some of you know I returned to work on a phased return last June and gradually increased the hours worked to 30 a week. I have been working the 30 hours since November but it has been a struggle as most weekends are just spent recovering ready to face the next week. This latest bout of fatigue has made me realise that it can't continue, I hardly have a social life at all due to tiredness and haven't been able to get to the gym much at all this year as am too tired to go after finishing work for the day. Physchologically this has a big impact on me as I have difficulty trying to loose weight at all but at least when I was managing to make it to the gym I felt better about myself. So wish me luck everyone because when I go back into work Monday I will be asking to reduce my hours I'm hoping to cut back to 24/25 hours a week instead. This has been a hard decision to make and something Morris and I have discussed he has bless him been nagging me for months to reduce the hours I work. I am obviously very stubborn and its taken me a while to admit defeat and acknowledge the fact that I can't continue with the way things are.
