You haven`t got the energy to type ?
Welcome to the group. When I was a MS I was single, worked 50 hrs/week, took care of several elderly bro and sis and my house and animals and my non-witness handicapped mom. I was the accts servant, the asst school overseer, handled mikes and the sound system, was an attendant, had at least 2 meeting parts each week and gave public talks. Was also "on call" for last minute substitute Sunday speaker (got a call Sat 9pm asking me to give a public talk in the morning), made shepherding calls, worked in the prison ministry, AND put in at least 20 hrs/month field service. Oh and I frequently cleaned the entire hall by myself and frequently did outside work by myself (raking, trimming bushes, sweeping etc)
But still that was never enough. And never good enough. One Saturday I was supposed to take the group out in service but that morning I decided not to show up, and to just never go back. No one called or stopped by until about 4 or 5 years later. (New circuit overseer?) Then they wouldn't leave me alone so I wrote a letter to the elders saying I had left the organization "several years ago" and asked them not to call ad not to come on my property.

I remember that "worn out" feeling. The more you cared, the worse you got beaten.
What you need to do is sit down, light up a giant spliff and contemplate the universe.
