14“There's Too Much On My Plate!”
Jessica Z said that she knows she is getting burned out when she starts forgetting everything.
“When I start getting burned out, I start to forget absolutely everything. I forget to pack certain items in lunches, I forget that I put a load of laundry on and it sits there wet
in the washing machine, I forget to turn on burners while I am trying to cook dinner… I think that there is just too much on my plate."
"I have too much to get done and my brain can’t process it all. When this happens, I start writing lists. They help a lot. However, even with the lists, I forget things. It drives me absolutely insane. When I start forgetting things, it’s a trickle-down effect and nothing gets done the way that it needs to. Mom burnout, you’ve got to love it.”
