Yes, one of the things that I didn't take into consideration when returning to work was how much longer things take, and how much energy it takes. I am grateful that I don't do the makeup thing and that my haircut is very low maintenance. I can easily get up, wash up, get dressed, eat breakfast, make lunch and be out the door in 30 min, but even those few things take longer now, though getting much better. I forgot that because I was walking slower, I would naturally need more time. And remember that much of your body's energy is being directed at healing still. I stopped PT before returning to work just because I knew that would be way too much. I hope that you can achieve a healthy balance.I made the bed, took shower, washed and dried hair. By the time I was dressed and had makeup done I was exhausted.
