Battle of needs

I'm battling two important needs today.

My friend confessing her childhood sexual abuse brought my own abuse back with a punch to the gut. I've been crying most of the day.

I took the day off of work to pack my house & head up with a load of stuff to the new one, & unpack there, paint some more, etc.

Now it's 3pm & I'm emotionally exhausted.

Do I look out for my mental health, take a "mental health day" & just sleep & relax, maybe do some packing later?

Or do I pull it together, set emotions aside, & do what I planned to do?

I can't decide which need is more prevelant...emotional rest need or the need to get stuff done...
