For the past two weeks i have been so stressed. My body, weak from lack of sleep and then on and off headaches. I have been doing a lot of brain work, i don’t really like eating so there is not enough food in my body for strength.
If not for God i probably would have been admitted because for some days now i wake up at 5:45am but i find it difficult getting up till about 6:30am sometimes 7 am.
This morning i woke up and i couldn’t get myself out of bed for another hour. I was feeling so weak. I prayed for strength, eventually got up and then went to the hospital.
The doctor said its stress and i needed to rest, drink a lot of water and eat properly.
On my way to work i began to think about parents. I’m still single. There is no one depending on me to take care of them. All i have to do is fend for myself and i am this stressed?
I have always thought that when i get married, all i will have to do is adjust. Now i think this is beyond adjusting. There has be a special grace for parenting because you have a lot of things you are juggling and right now i think i have to start praying for that grace in advance.
My mum gave me a book titled Success Under Stress. I’m going to start reading that today and then share what i learn from it.
