To feel like I am skiving

Feeling guilty and no idea why.
Feeling very very stressed. Mum has dementia , currently in hospital with broken hip , very poor mobility anyway.
Also 2 hours drive away. Dad doesn't cope and takes it out on me.
Husband lost his job 3 weeks ago. Thankfully looks like new job on the horizon
Uncle died last week. Mum now wants 'to die' because of this.
I have a kidney stone and have been in pain for 5 months and docs won't refer me.

Work full time covering my own job and another job due to maternity leave. Sometimes just feel like someone else should pick up the slack sometimes.

Have had a sore neck for about two weeks, over the last few nights it's got worse and now I am waking up very early and unable to get back to sleep.
I woke up at 4am this morning and didn't sleep after that .

I haven't gone into work today .

Sympathy or tell me to get my arse back to work.

Oh God I honestly think you need to get signed off OP! Go to the GP...ask for a different one! Don't take no for an answer re the kidney stone and see about your neck too...ask for two weeks off. It sounds like you're anxious due to stress. Tell the GP everything. flowers Don't feel bad! That's part of the anxiety. You've got too much on...too many shits hitting the fan as it were.

You need to rest, definitely not skiving. Sounds like an awful lot is going on and this is your bodies way of saying slow down. It may not be a bad idea to see the doctor and get yourself signed off for a proper rest.

Have a lovely day in bed, snuggle under the duvet and look after yourself. If you have a tv in the bedroom add in some crap tv too. x
