Burning out
I suppose you're all wondering why I haven't been on Gaia as much to update, post, etc. Here's why:

My workplace is and still is understaffed, making me work odd shifts and pickups as well. So I'm burning my mental health candle at both ends just to help them out. All while having internal breakdowns left and right. I want to stay on Gaia, but at the same time, all of this is fueling a giant cataclysm that has me forgoing the site after work and burying myself on the phone.

I love you guys, but at the moment, I'm in a hole that is too deep and is swallowing me from the inside out. I hope to log on more often, yet work is pushing me past my limits, asking me to come in and laughing over how overly stressed I am. The pay and benefits as well as the short commute is why I stay.

You guys are pretty much my work in this quagmire at the moment. I'm being told that 2nd week of April is when I can resume a 20-hour work week of 1pm-6pm shifts Monday-Thursday, but this has yet to be proven. Just today, I was informed that my Thursday shift of 2pm-8pm is being thrown out the window and is being replaced with a 12pm-8pm shift instead.

Just. Bear with me. I know I'm almost going on 2 months of lackluster posts, rates, etc. on here, but I just need to weather this storm.
