This has not always been evident in my life, but I strive for integrity...doing what i say I will, but today I let a friend down. he is in desperate need of help and wanted me to work fo him, and it seemed perfect; part time work, whatever hours I wanted, and take off for Dr appointments as needed. The pay even was not to bad. But this morning I told him no and went home.

Some days I nap 3 times a day. Today I slept half the afternoon. Its been an hour and I am ready for bed. When I do manage to do work, I get out of breath and tired after 10 minutes of "work". That is considered a good day, most days I do not even get started as any job seems overwhelming even if it is a small task.

What is wrong with me? My team of Doctors are NOT helping me get to the root problem.

Hi Neil,

I giggle as I read through most of this with an eye to the intelligence and the honesty. I was married to an Aspie for 20 years until he found someone else while I was in university and was told I was no longer the person he wanted. sigh. Oh and I'm currently in Toronto, Ontario, Canada..need to change the location tag. lol.
Having been married that long I have some learned responses that may help. I love permaculture, he did not.
Hugs sweetie, you have this.
