I tell you all this to underscore the importance of keeping work-life balance in the forefront and doing your level best to keep your stress level down by not biting off more than you can chew. Sometimes it means tough choices. Sometimes it means disappointing someone. Sometimes it means having to say "no". As a recovering workaholic I understand your plight. But I can also say that when you truly keep balance top of mind your overall happiness and effectiveness will be positively impacted.
Be diligent in keeping the balance. It's worth it.
