I rarely miss a day here, but today I am finding myself mentally exhausted. The effects of being caught in the sandwich generation — usually defined as having to care for both children and aging parents — is sometimes more than I can bear. I think it’s taking its toll on my mental health. Plus I’m also caught sandwiched between family issues and work issues; the business stress of having to close our other location and not having anyone who can help us with the packing up of stock, the storing of unsold inventory, and the ripping apart and liquidating of store fixtures; not to mention the personal sadness that it’s over.
So keep me and our family in your prayers.
