At least that is how it is for me.
The first week home, this time, was a flurry of activity even though we vowed to just relax.
The second week saw us on the road to Virginia to say good-bye to friends and welcome home to others.
This week I can barely get out of bed. Seriously. I am utterly exhausted.
I think it is because I am not the sole person in charge any longer. I don’t have to answer every question, get in the middle of every dispute, plan all the meals, grocery shop, etc. The pressure is off.
I was in bed for 12 hours last night following a 2 hour nap in the afternoon. The night before I was in bed for 10 hours.
I thought I was getting sick, but I don’t “feel” sick. I am just bone-weary tired.
Quite frankly, I am ready for another nap.
I need to get it together soon. I have stuff to do!
Has this ever happened to you after a deployment or any other event?
