I didn't realize

It appears that I am letting a lot of personal stuff affect me more than I thought. My boss asked if I am okay today. He said I look tired. I explained that I just have a lot of stuff going on and that I am okay. So I need to try harder to get over this stuff.

I'm going through stuff with DH and I'm letting it affect the rest of my day and I need to figure out how to stop but I'm so upset about things.

I am someone who tries really hard to not bring my personal life in to my work life. I usually succeed. Good luck with your issues. If you need to rant and rave, message me. I'll listen and not judge.

I'm sorry! Hope everything calms down soon. It's been a super rough week for me, half way done!

I think when we have a lot going on we can't help but let it affect us. I hope things calm down a bit for both of you.

As hard as we may try, our lives - work and personal - ARE intertwined.  It's not always easy to completely block one of them out.  I think it's great that your boss was concerned - it's good to have support wherever you are.

Hopefully things get easier for you soon.  Feel free to reach out if you want an ear :)

Sorry you're having a tough time separating work and home. I know how tough it can be. Feel free to vent here. Writing out my issues always helps me process them

Do you have an EAP? They can be a good resource when life starts bogging you down. Even a little break in the day for relaxation or yoga can help.

I won't use the eap. If I need to I will schedule a counseling session, though.
