I feel like a candle being burnt at both ends

With every new challenge that arises, the difficulty level increases exponentially.

I feel like I’m a candle burnt at both ends and the flames are racing towards each other. 

Last night I was too stressed out to sleep but did manage to fall asleep at some point.  I woke up feeling like I hadn’t slept in a week, been hit by a train and run over my an 18 wheeler. 

It’s now well after 1 am and I’m writing for the first time in almost 24 hours because it’s just been that kind of day. 

In the spirit of keeping things short and trying to get some sleep, I’ll just say that today was an unusually difficult day. 

T-Mobile is having major issues and I can’t make a single call without it dropping.  I dropped roughly 15 calls today between Akron Children’s Hospital’s Neurodevelopmental Science Center (for Elliott’s seizures), the pediatrician for Emmett’s rash (which did turn out to be impetigo), trying to bring the boys Mom up to speed, coordinating the assistance of my amazing Mother and several work related phone calls, not to mention half a dozen calls to T-Mobile tech support. 

My brain, body and soul are on complete overload. 

In between everything, I’m trying to figure out how I’m going to make everything work with limited resources. 

I’m tired.  I’m overwhelmed.  I’m frustrated.  I’m stressed out and worried.
