  •  You are combining a bunch of life stressors (5+ / 0-)

    Just from the health standpoint, there are scales of stressful events that often can lead to health problems.
    Three near the top of the list are divorce, a move and a job change.  I know I'm not telling you anything new, but combining them is heart attack territory for sure.  My field of work.  Look hard at priorities for your time, throttle back where you can and use the time you gain to try to maintain some basic health habits like some moderate exercise and even a little time - just 10 minutes a day - for meditation.  You are accomplishing more work than your new employer expects - so you really can ease up a little and still make them happy.  Protect yourself.

    •  I've gotten so little sleep.... (5+ / 0-)

      And just tonight, just minutes ago, I discovered that my spouse had been not paying the businesses bills and there's thousands of dollars (I don't even know how many) in unpaid, overdue liabilities.  Kinda freaking out and need to figure out how to handle it.

      Yeah, not an easy time... but I'll make it through.  And hopefully get to a point where I can actually get some proper sleep each night.
