Today and yesterday but hopefully not tomorrow.

I am trying so hard. I'm trying to make people understand my sarcasm and my jokes. I'm trying to be comfortable in social situations, talking with people that I don't know and ignoring that face they make, the I'm really trying to understand what you are saying because you have an accent and you clearly don't know how to speak french face. You know, it's not like I just started speaking the language yesterday. I am trying to say it's great to work from home when I know that I'm really a social person. A social person who can feel that her social skills have atrophied and are disappearing. I'm trying not to hate being here because I love someone who loves it here. I am trying to be positive but today, it's absolutely exhausting.

As someone who works from home and who is also only here for the man she loves, I totally hear where you're coming from. But it does get better (and easier)...eventually.

PS. I deleted my first post because of a huge typo!!
