Sharing a problem…

They say a problem shared is a problem halved and I hate to admit it but recently I’ve been struggling. I’ve been snappy at home, slacking at work, super tired and pretty grouchy. I’d love to blame PMS but that hasn’t made an appearance for at least half a year. Nope, it’s not pregnancy either…
