Time flies even when you're not having fun

Wednesday, January 27, 2016

My last entry was ever so long ago and things have just gone south. I gained 30 pounds, my anxiety disorder got out of control, I lost my job as a librarian, my car blew up and my dearly beloved kitty died. I'm hoping 2016 will be better or at least not suck so much. I did get a job although not one I like and it is very physically demanding. I'm working in a brain injury rehab facility as a graveyard cleaner and food prep aid. There is so much mopping I walk about 3 miles a day now, which is a good thing. I've lost some weight and my back is stronger and I can make it through a shift without thinking I'm going to die. But it's not a job I like and it's boring. Luckily I can listen to my iPod while I'm working and because it's night shift there is little patient care. I do not like patient care, I do not like it here, I do not like it there, I do not like it anywhere. One advantage to this job is that it is local. A job more suited to my tastes would require either a half hour commute or a 45 minute one, quite possibly in bad weather and I do not have the option of moving. My life seems to be a flaming pile of crap right now. I must live in the moment and not cry about the things I've lost or worry about the future. I can do anything one day at a time. I hope.

    I'm sorry life is difficult right now. The end of 2015 was very stressful in my house, too.
    I agree with ARCHIMEDESII! Sending out resumes can't hurt. Hang in there.

    You can't see the view from the top, if you don't climb the mountain!

    I've been reading some of the replies to a post another member left about being fired. It seems many other members have recently lost their jobs. You can include me. I was laid off last week. So, I'm very sorry to hear that you lost your job as a librarian. there are too few people who love books and teach other people to love books.

    A 30 minute commute isn't bad, especially if it's for a job that you'll enjoy. Why not submit your resume ? It can't hurt to try.

    I'm sure 2016 will improve for us all
