I am totally exhausted yet I could not sleep last night! I watched the clock and tried my best but could not sleep at all. I have had a lot on my mind with personal/family issues so that may be the cause. I have been working hard in the yard though so I thought that should have knocked me out. I am tired, my body is tired and even achey, yet I can't sleep. I did dose off for 15 mins or so a couple times thru the night but it's not enough. Finally I must have fallen asleep after 6:15 AM but then the alarm went off at 7:00! Now I am fighting sleep and just exhausted! I felt like I was going to pass out in the shower this morn! I don't close daycare much, even when sick I surely don't want to call off and say "hey I'm tired daycare is closed today" That would look terrible. I know my clients don't have anyone else. What can I do? My fear is come nap time I will pass out on the sofa or something. I thought about those 5 hr energy drinks but have never tried anything like that. I have heart palps as it is and although doc says they are ok to work with I am afraid to take something that may speed up my heart (a friend says they do that). I'm sure many of u have been in this situation so I wanted to ask what u do? What would u do in my case? Kids are coming in 30 mins and I feel like if I sit I will pass out I am so tired! I don't have coffee I do drink tea but it does nothing energy wise. What else is there?
