I was working harder and harder, but I felt like I was spinning in circles. It didn’t matter how hard I worked, there was always more. Keeping my head down and working harder wasn’t working for me anymore.

I was exhausted, yet busy with getting stuff done both at work and home. My husband was gone a lot for either work or to help his dad. I was fearful that if I brought up my workload to my boss — especially so soon after returning from leave — I’d be told I just needed to manage my time better or it would be blamed on the fact I am a working mother. I was the only full-time woman with young kids working there at the time.
