So much stress, so little stretch (in my pants)

Sunday, January 29, 2017

I was offered a new job at 10k less than promised, no insurance and only a 6 month contract, but I'm so broke, I have to take it. My new boss bad-mouthed her own colleagues during my 3-hour interview in which she also answered her phone and sent emails (so rude). It's a 9-hour workday with a 3-hour daily commute. My dogs will be pissed. I'm terrified that I won't be able to keep up my newly burgeoning exercise habit because of exhaustion. I'm just having a very tough time finding the positive thoughts in the short-term $$ gain versus the many cons. My gut says DON'T TAKE IT. My wallet says, "seriously?" Arrrggghhh. Not too mention, but I will, no sick days or vacation days. I have chronic pain and it's unrealistic to think I can make it 6 months w/o a break. I'm feeling overwhelmed and lonely. Snuggling with my TENS unit as I blog (vent). Doubling down on my mantra. I am financially, emotionally, and physically-secure, happy and healthy. I am financially, emotionally, and physically-secure, happy, and healthy. Etc.

    I love the picture, I am sorry for all your stress! I hope you can take the job at least initially to help the financial burden but I am sorry about the commute and the terms. I am hoping you find something better ASAP. emoticon

    Hugs. Sounds like a tough time. I remember having to take up a lower paying job to beat joblessness. I hope you have a 1hr lunch break. Try going for 30min walks then. Keep a pair of walking shoes in the office. That will give you some light exercise
