Needing advice Encouragement

feeling overwhelmed at times with home health and endless documentation. Love it in general but wondering what other nurses are doing to stay caught up. I also struggle with fibromyalgia and find that driving around all day and then sitting up all night can be painful at times. New meds really help alot but I have to come home and rest for few hours and then sit up and chart. It kinda breaks up my sleep though. But I am prepared that paperwork is part of the hardship and that there are no easy areas in nursing. I want to stay in the field a few more years and build back up my work history as I have had breaks do to major flare ups and then maybe transition to telephonic case management. But I love community health nursing as it has allowed me to stay in nursing for the past 17 years otherwise I would have had to give it up.......
