With my work (being an antique, vintage decorative arts dealer) I go to TX twice a year. Talk about stress. It cost over $6,000 to do this show. So you have to sell so much just to break even. Its under a tent and the heat of texas this time of year can be bad. I have thought about giving this show up but it does make money for me and saved my business when things were bad a few yrs back. I am at the point in my life that money is less important as this it it really taking a lot of me. Dont get me wrong, Im not "set " in life. It's just getting ready for the show is more than most would think. With CFS makes it much worse. I spend weeks stripping mirrors to give them an old world look then I use a chemical wash to give them a certain look. this is all bad for your health and with CFS makes it worse. Im now 54 and even thou many think I have a wonderful life. I am blessed in a good relationship, no major money worries but my health make me use all my energy to keep up my business and leaves what is left for my relationship (which i feel should be the other way around) I just am stuck and cant seem to find the way to restructure my life. Ive hired help so i can have time off and guess what? it just gives me time to do other chores .... like looking at estates, or picking up supplies.. banking.. etc.. what has my life become... I need to make some changes but just dont know how.
