Work Stress

United States
February 25, 2008 8:57am CST
I know everyone is stressed out by their jobs (or most people are) but I feel like I am reaching my limit! It isn't really the work I have to do that is stressing me out, but one of the people I work with...oh my gosh! I swear, if I ever quit-she'll be the reason! She is the Nicest person, but she is a lot to handle. If I had ONE wish right now, it would be to find a way to make enough money off the interent so I wouldn't have to stay at this job. I'm not really lazy, but if I worked online then I would be able to spend a lot more time with my family. I could worry a lot less about sleeping (and not getting enough of it) and I could still kind of work like a "night shift." I like being awake during the night-there's a lot of good things to watch on my days off...and if I worked from home I could still do that but I could also spend more time with my family during the day. I could sleep when I need to, and see my family. Right now I hardly ever get to see them, because I get so tired I sleep during the day...they go to work and school...then I wake up, getting ready for work...maybe have an hour or two to myself, and go to work. I never go out to eat, or a movie with them anymore X.X And I love spending time with my family.

Amen to that. I got drove nuts in the workplace and that is why I am now working at home. I'm not lazy at all either and I really likes my job but not the people I worked with. I work nights online because my husband does also. I have really gotten adjusted to it. I'm not sure how much you are wanting to make though. I would like to help you somehow with some of the sites I am with but I am not sure if it is something you want to do. you can private message me if you like.

I will defeniatly private message you! I need all the help I can get in this, especially from someone who's been doing it. I want to make as much as I can, so anything you can do to help me, I would appreciate it so much. A couple things to know about me; I really hate giving out my phone number, I PREFER sites that pay with Paypal (but it is essential), and I defeniatly don't want to give out any real private info like social security number or bank info (there was actually a site that asked for this!!!)

I can't get texting on my phone, so I don't think that pin number thing will work. And since I have given my number out to some sites my cell phone has been ringing off the hook! It's quite annoying! I will check out your blog, thank you :)

I'm sorry to hear that but I honestly have never had any problems of anyone calling my cell phone after entering my number at the sites I am with. they just have to verify that you live in the United States and that it is your number is all they use it for one time and that is it.

I know exactly how you feel. I was in your shoes 2 years ago. If you really want to work from home, I suggest you start now while you are still working. Then when earnings from your work from home is enough for you to quit your job, you can do so. If you have kids then this is the safest thing to do. I have no kids and we never go on spending spree so I can afford to quit, start a home business and work online too. I don't think this is possible if I have kids since the financial responsibility will be a lot heavier.

hope you can find one and then leave the miserable job if you make a bit more from surveys maybe you can get part time instead. less money but less stress.

I have the same sentiments. I'm starting to feel stress on my job. I work 8 hours a day to earn money that its not even fit to pay for my own expenses. I spend most of the time for my job. I traveled 4 hours back and fort. spend 8 hours at work, that's total of 12 hours plus the hours for the preparation. I feel that I cannot do things that I'd like to do... I know I have to work to earn. but it will took years for me to save money to enjoy life.... I just wish I have all thge money in the world. and I'm gonna share all to you.... he he

You have to travel FOUR hours to and from work??!??!!! What do you do, if you don't mind me asking. Couldn't you find a job that is closer to you? X.X I would never be able to do that! Thank you! =P And if I happen to get all the money in the world before you, then I'll share it! hehe

I have so many stress for my daily work and i expected it to include on my daily routine. But my only way of releasing the stress are by listening music, talking to my family and friends, playing with my pets, reading books and watching tv. I have to include the list to release the tension in my body and to recover from hard work and task. You know i understand your situation on your co worker because i had expression that kind of people before.

Well I do listen to music, read books, play with my pets, spend time with family, watch tv...and that all helps me with my stress WHILE I'm doing them...but then I'm right back at work and unhappy again X.X

Lily you aren't alone in this. Though I'm gaining my success slowly but surely, there is still a penalty on time and what I'm able to do. You think your situation is bad? Lets have a friendly face-off. I haven't been out to a movie since last summer. I've not been to the bookstore in a few months and am just rereading some books in my collection. I only went electronic shopping last weekend with my bro, but before that, electronic shopping hadn't happened in a long time either. I've not been to the arcade since... I really don't know but its been long. While I almost never go out to eat, I still feel a more cooped up effect (or maybe more of a work-sleep burn out). Here's to earning the level of success we want. And here's to not just getting free time but also making that time. Its important to consider that too.

If you are truly interested in working from home, I have an opportunity that may be of interest to you. This opportunity can be worked both off and online. They give you several websites to work with. Dental, Vision, Chiropractic, and prescription coverage, extensive training, and more. If you would like to know more, send me a message and I will send you the website.
