That's an awfully long day Invisible. What do you do for a living?

I guess all you can do is really look after yourself doing those kind of hours. Make sure you eat a good breakfast, make up a nice lunch and cook yourself a healthy nutritious meal when you get home. Cut out sugars, processed food and white carbohydrates, alcohol and coffee.

Do that for a few weeks and your energy levels will improve, then you can start doing some exercise. Walk for 30 mins at least a day, then progress to the gym or running.

When you start to eat better and exercise regularly you will feel much better and more able to cope with your job.

Hi Invisible,
They are very long hours, eat regularly and drink loads.
It's not your fault a child had a nose bleed.
You'll learn as you gain more experience.
Build up your confidence, look at all the good things you do.
Take care
