Seems I have fallen in to the same trap I thought I had learned to avoid! I used to work nonstop when I was employed! I've never worked more hours than I'm working now, and I used to work a LOT. I suppose this is just my "gotta do my best" personality hard at work.
I thought I had learned not to fall into that trap after Braden was diagnosed. But slowly, as Braden has been healthier, I've let it creep in and suck me in to "obsessive mode" again.
And I didn't even realize it until last night!
I think the fact that this work is about trying to save the lives of children, I've put extra emphasis on just working more and more to make a bigger difference.
I have to stop doing that. My kids are still the number one priority and I haven't been treating them like they are.
Stupid cAncer! Even in trying to fight you, you were winning!
