iheartcats Posted August 3, 2011 Report Share Posted August 3, 2011 My work schedule was just tolerable because it had two 1-9 shifts so I could do Doctor Appointments and rest up those two mornings. You know how POTS likes to be worse in the AM.Well, now I've been changed to a 9-5 M-F instead (which some people think is a 'good thing'...not so much for me! I wasn't excited!). I've already fought a couple illnesses as of late and am going through fatigue/exhaustion from a bad virus right now. I don't have much time off so I really have to work around this (and it's tough) and try to limit my doctor visits (and if I am careful I can book a PCP before my morning start time if I book far enough in advance, but not my specialists).So I do all I can...but sometimes it doesn't feel like enough. This was a 'shock'- I was NOT expecting this shift change and it's going to be very rough adjusting to. I'm also to the point of having anxiety which is adding to my POTS flare. I literally feel like I am going to burst out into tears (isn't that silly? but I do feel like that).On top of that, we're short-staffed for a bit and that's extra work and extra stress. It's supposed to be temporary, but still it's adding to all this. What can I do? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
