How Do You Feel Right Now #11

Recommended Posts

Question of the day:

How to remain sane and relatively happy in a totally dysfunctional work environment? 

My saving graces: 

At least I am happy outside of work
My loving husband 
My loving friends and family

But each day is a struggle at work. Each week seems to get worse there. My boss is SO uninspiring - the leadership all around is lacking and uninspiring.

The other day my boss said to us that he was conspiring to come up with an excuse to be able to leave work. He walks around glum all day and clearly does not want to be there. What kind of effect would that have on a team? A totally negative one. 

I applied for a job this weekend. That helped. My goal: one application per week.

I’m doing worse than usual because of problems at work and spending the holidays entirely alone since no one wanted me around but I got a kitten and he makes me feel better and gives me a reason to stick around, even if I’m still extremely depressed to the point I spend most of my time not working doing absolutely nothing

What's going on?  Do you feel like sharing?

The new interim boss wants me to really step up my game. My former boss left "notes" about my performance that were decidedly negative (big shock). 

There's pressure from above to inject new blood into the organization...and put the old horses out to pasture.

Welcome to DF! I have found that the best therapists on the planet walk around on four legs. I have two older cats myself. Enjoy your time with kitty!

Still sick and my eyes hurt from lack of sleep, but oddly, I don't feel tired! ...meh! Maybe a little. I know I'll definitely need a nap today, but I just ate so...yeah, no, I think I AM tired. Lol But maybe coffee will change that. Gah! How I don't envy those of you who have to work! 😛 (sorry)

Overall I feel hopeless.  This is a story where everyone thinks how could there possibly be a happy ending?

I feel hopeless most of the time too, but a little part of me makes me keep going ... 🙂

I guess anger and rage keep me going.  I'm not just alone.  The people in my life want me to fail.

I am ticked off. I have an appt with my therapist tomorrow and I just learned I have to report for jury duty.  I really, really need to see therapist as things have not been good.

Find it hard to not be depressed with all that is going on with our Government, the climate, and the world in general.  It has definitely made me feel more hopeless.  I fear for the future.

I would love to know how to do that.  Most of the space in my mind seems to be filled with bitterness and regrets and thoughts of people that have done terrible things to me.

My mind is also filled with the same.   I speak about justice all day.  I am very bitter times ten.  Only kids make me smile.

try to ignore them. when i lost friends and relatives in the past because of my illness to be honest i cried. i failed like a failure because no one could accept my problems, or understand my illness. almost 90% of the people left and i was sad, and alone. but after a while i realized them leaving me was the best thing that ever happened to me. now i don't have to deal with their attitude and thinking that this illness is in my head, that I'm not trying hard enough etc...I don't have many people I can rely on , and I think it's better this way. They say you are lucky if you find a few good people/friends in this world. I have a few that I see from time to time because people are busy, (married, etc) but compared to those who I lost, I look back and realize they were not worth it. You can't make fun of people and bring them down, especially when you have no clue what they are going through.... You are a good person and I know someday you will meet some good friends who you can count on. I also had to find the hard way that sometimes strangers are better than family..

Out of the blue I'm having major back pain. I fell in the shower 2 months ago and hurt my back then, but I thought it had healed itself. Now I can hardly move without sharp pains. I can hardly sleep. I'm seeing a chiropractor today. I really pray this can be healed. The thought of being incapacitated physically scares the hell out of me.

I read somewhere that the human back hasn't completely evolved yet for upright bipedalism, even though we've supposedly been walking on our two feet for a million years or more. Who knows. But it certainly does seem to be a weak spot. Hope yours get better soon.
