My day yesterday

My day at work yesterday was hella crazy. I was like, literally just in some sort of stupor. I kept dropping things and I just wanted to go home. There were parts of the day that I felt better then others. I don't know what made me feel this way but I will say it was quite the distraction and I hated it. I felt like I just needed to quit my job and was afraid I would lose my job. I'm wondering if this doesn't mean it's time for me to find another one. I will definitely miss all of my coworkers when I do leave, but well.. I was hoping not to feel the need to leave until after May. If nothing else I am going to strive through it and stay. The funny thing about it is that I usually last in a job about a year before I feel the need to leave it, which doesn't look at all good on a job history sheet. Are you the same way?

Your sugar levels may be going up and down. Tried to tell you that you need to eat 3 square meals from the different food groups. Could also be blood pressure and could be just being tired.

I know I need to especially be more careful when it comes to my health as my family has a lot of diferent histories of health related problems. Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, Cholesterol and the like. Stress is another big thing in my family. I have been eating healthier since that day and it's shown.

I was more of a stayer. I mean unless the job was really horrid. I think there are tests you can take at the job service to find out for sure what type job you would enjoy and be good in. Doing this might ensure you would stay in a job for a longer period of time. SOmething to consider anyway. You might be surprised.

Would it be at the ESC? I may have to check into that then, go down there and ask them about it at the very least. I do know if I can help it I don't want my next job to have to do with customer service unless it is stocking.

I think many can relate with his one as I feel no matter what a person is going thru or working at. I know here have been thru this situation a time or two. But really unless a person has another job lined up unless it is truly something beyond your control you need to stick it out and hope for the best from there.

About a month and two weeks ago I decided to give a two weeks notice. A coworker (superior) suggested I just get fewer hours. That's what I did and I feel better about it. I am going to ask for one more day, and I am going to hope I get it as the hours would be weird but would be very useful to one person whom sometimes it gets busy and she needs the help... She does my shift (the one I work now) except on a different day. I just wish we all could have a "I'm overwhelemed" day and be able to say do something else at that job to give ourselves a break.

When i was employed years ago i felt the same way. I was sick and tired of the situation and i was getting tired from doing the same thing everyday. I wanted to quit at that time but every time i do, i got this picture of my friends that i had to leave and the boss begged me to stay. I did stay until the company went bankcrupt.

Yes well I know that I do need to eventually find a better job but for right now I have to have the job I do now or I would just quit. I need to save and set plans in action / motion so that I can better myself. I know some co-workers would miss me if I were to leave.

Sometimes I do not even last that long, and I am feeling that way myself. I hope I just hang on. Are you doing okay? Health and stuff gets you down, I know.

I've had my good days and my bad days. Right now I am doing okay, yesterday was a wonderfully good day for me as I was all cheery. Today I am hoping will go by fast as I will have another day off. I do like my job, I do enjoy it but lately I've found that I'd rather be at home. I'm not asking for any days off until next month though, where I'll probably ask for two or three in a row off.

That's not a job I'd ever want to have.

You know what - I often feel like that when PMS hits - hee hee!! I get clumsy, feel sluggish, get negative thoughts, get down A LOT about myself, and basically feel like a complete OOF. Feels like everything is overwhelming and I just want to dig a hole and hide in it. But I think I know what you mean in a job point of view. I did that in my earlier years - but I left them after a couple short months. I was very young then, and I think my thoughts were that I over stayed my welcome as the job never felt "right" and I hadn't found my place in the job world yet. As I got older, I stuck to the jobs and stayed for a long time, even though I still felt like an OOF - hee hee.

I don't think it's PMS, I've actually not had my period in quite a bit. I just get this way sometimes and it can be distracting. Yesterday I felt as if I was being more a pain then anything and I don't want to be a pain to people. As the years have progressed I've seen to stay in a job longer, which is good, but when I frist started working it would just be months. My last job before this was only a month but that could not be helped as I was laid off.

During my working days,over 30 years back, salaries were in 3 digits and low.To remain in one job was to stagnate and especially in my profession as an architect.Therefore i had changed jobs every two years and went higher up in the scale.In every job i made great friends and thoroughly enjoyed my self.In my final job i worked 2 years in the local office in my city and then i was sent to a Gulf country to work in their branch there.Naturally i made a quantum leap from a 3 digit to 5 digit salary as i was earning petrodollars and earning valuable foreign exchange for my country.I was in that country for 4 years after which i returned to my country and city and set up my own practice which went on for nine years after which i retired.
