  1. I already requested the day off I’m still waiting to hear if it was approved that’s the problem. My supervisor is coming out to my site to drop some equipment off and probably so I can sign off on my write up. He’s probably going to tell me the request is denied. I was thinking about being completely honest with him that I’m not happy with work and I’m trying to better myself in my career aspirations. I think he might be understanding. I don’t know how management would take it. He’s not that high up there in the company or anything. He’s just one level above me.
  2. I have a standing post at work. The place where I’m working is all automated and from what I can tell, they don’t watch cameras a whole lot. Well today I took a bathroom break that was unscheduled. Normally I do this all the time because they don’t check the cameras. Well this time they did and now I’m getting written up for it. I suspect they checked me because I checked into work late today. I was already removed from my previous account, which hit me real hard. The company already doesn’t like me because of that. Now I’m on their watch list. I want out so bad but I can’t get out. I’m on a fixed schedule, Mon - Fri regular hours. It’s hard to schedule an interview or go in for anything related to work or the application process outside of my working hours. For example, I applied for a trades union recently, and they want me to come in for an aptitude test, but I would need to get the day off of work, or call off to do it. I feel stuck and I feel like a failure for being written up and everything. If I don’t get this day off approved, I would have to call off to take this test and if I call off, I might be written up again and I don’t want that to happen to either. What do I do? I can’t take working here much longer.
  3. Pretty sure I joined because I was going through one of my terrible bouts of insomnia.
  4. The only thing that made me feel better about it, is one of the other girls at the gym who knew about my situation and knew that I was upset told me that I’m better looking than her boyfriend.
  5. I know. There’s a lot of things that I need to work on. Just the fact that I did ask her out is a huge step for me. Normally I would be to afraid to do so. Sometimes it’s just really hard to move on. Just this past week, she showed up to the gym with another guy who I’ve never seen before and a kid who I assume to be the guys son. I can only assume this guy is her new boyfriend. When I saw her with him, I jumped to the conclusion that he was her boyfriend and I was thinking about it the rest of the night at the gym. I was doing pretty good up until that point.
  6. Thank you for your response and advice, but you have to see it from my perspective. I’ve never really had a girlfriend, so it’s incredibly hard for me to move on from these kind of things. Especially because these things tend to be triggers for me. I’m okay now, but it still hurts a little. I’m actually surprised I’m taking it as good as I am.
  7. Massage. A 60 to 90 minute full body massage will feel really really good.
  8. I’ll add sleep to here. Proper sleep will help you in every aspect of health.
  9. Thank you. My job is stupid easy now. It’s just incredibly boring. I get no sense of satisfaction from it. I applied for some skilled trades. I’ve read that many people in skilled trades are happy with their careers, as they get to actually contribute to a physical, tangible product and can look at and be proud of their work. Not only that, but their work is very important. It’s also high in demand and because it is skilled, not everyone can do it. As for the weight, I’m going to experiment with a high fat, low carb, and moderate to high protein diet. For when I do exercise, I’ll increase my carb intake to provide my muscles with adequate energy for working out. Idk what I’m going to do with sleep though. That’s what concerns me the most.
  10. I thought I was doing pretty good for awhile. I was pretty happy with my job. I worked at a comfortable account. I genuinely enjoyed working there as it was low to zero stress and an easy, relaxed environment. Then this past year, the account closed. Out of my control. I knew this was happening, we had plenty of notice. After the account closed this past year, they transferred me to a higher paying account. The trade off for the higher pay, was more stress. This account was crazy. Very toxic environment with coworkers. Zero tolerance on many things and very, very serious. Not only that, but I had an unfavorable schedule that wasn’t good for proper sleep. Long story short, I got removed from the account. I fu*ked up. I don’t think I should’ve been removed, but I was. Now I took a pay cut and while my current account is significantly less stressful, I can’t help but feel like a failure. Not only that, but HR punished me by giving me a commute of 30 miles. There are numerous job sites that are 5-10 miles where I live. Not only that, but I box and I have a boxing match coming up, but I have performance anxiety and I am freaking out about cutting weight. I have to lose 6 or 7 pounds in 1 and a half weeks. I have insomnia, my body feels weak, and as a result, my training and performance is suffering. I have been feeling awful the past few weeks and I just don’t know what to do anymore.
  11. How does weed affect your sleep? It might become fully legalized soon where I live.
