As an attorney, I feel your pain Bo! I worked about
10 hours straight yesterday and brought home work and did about
2 hours more. It's the name of the game for some of us :( My mental fatigue is ridiculous. Of course I had a tension headache all night and today I feel like I got hit by a truck. I took half a klonopin already just to get my body relaxed enough so I charge through another long day.
I get exhausted a lot, but I try to keep a balance as much as possible. Exercise is my god send. I also make the most of my days off...even if that means just laying in bed all day and watching movies, walking my dog, sitting on my porch with a glass of wine, etc. Whatever my body wants, then that is what it gets :) And making time during my work day to talk to my coworkers and LAUGH! That sometimes makes it more tolerable.
Take care and hang in there! I know it is rough at times, but you will always find your way through it.
