Arguing at work over the fact that we have multiple lean/continuous improvement teams working on reviewing the same work but aren't actually all talking to each other at the same time. So, now, work that my department did has one VP saying "let's get this out to the company Friday" and another group saying "we need more data validation" and me saying "hey guys why isn't everyone talking to each other and why am I not on all the calls if it impacts my work" to which the CI people say "we already have someone from your site (different team) on the call" to which I say "go fuck yourself".

I'm so frustrated over a lot of things right now. I was up until 1:00am dealing with an extremely anxious partner the other night which involved three-fucking-hours on the phone because she's a totally different human being when she's having anxiety attacks and it fry's me for two days whenever this happens. She's amazing except when this happens.

Man I feel that. My recent ex is the most low-maintenance person in the world 99.99% of the time, but whenever she got extremely emotional it could take hours to resolve. Worth it, for sure, but definitely taxing.

Caretaker burnout is a thing that exists and isn't discussed much.

I cant take care of my partner if I'm unable to take care of myself.
