I'm just feeling really bummed out about
my Crohns Today... I work full time in an office setting, but started a part-time job last night to try and get my bills and such under control. The job is waitressing in an upscale restaurant with the potential to make really good tips. I waitressed a bit in my early 20's and really liked having the instant cash from tips at the end of the night. However, now that I'm 39 and having problems with my joints--my body was exhausted and sore to the touch last night after my first shift. I'm at my office job today, but feel very fatigued and sore like I haven't slept in days. My eyes keep spring tears--just from being tired. UGH! I just don't think my body can physically handle this type of work--being on my feet for long hours etc. and I am just really bummed about
it. I need to make some extra money! I'm just not making it on my full-time salary right now.
I guess the point of my post is just to vent. I feel like others (family and friends) do not understand the type of fatigue I'm speaking of. They are all like--oh you will get use to it. But, I don't know. I think I'm walking a fine line to keep trying and risk going into a full on flare. Grrr... I really wanted this to work.
Thanks for listening.
