I am right where you are. Same symptoms, same choice. Same misery of exhaustion. But I had to give up my nurse supervisor job, I couldn't keep running, literally, between floors, and I kept my .5FTE teaching job. In reality, the full time job I do for half time pay. And I am afraid I can't keep it up much longer. The weekends aren't long enough to get the rest I need, and throw in my struggle to do something fun like babysit my grandaughter for a few hours, or go grocery shopping, and my crash and go to class, crash and class cycle begins again. I need to hold on until June, then decide if I will sign a contract for next year, and my district really wants me to teach full time. And that I can't do. There is a chance to bargain for a teaching assistant, but even then, I am afraid I am 'biting off more than I can chew'. So, I am trying to accept being so sick and having no energy. But just functioning is getting to be too much of a struggle. I am sad right there with you, and I am glad you are trusting in God to work this out for you as He will for me. Prayers your way, Keep us posted,
