Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part V

It’s hard for me to get my work done and get enough sleep during the week. Actually it’s basically impossible. That’s why I cower at the idea of working 5 days a week instead of 4.
I don’t want to seem like I’m a weakling, but I have difficulties that others don’t have I guess. I can’t really imagine not having them, but yeah, I guess other people don’t.
Trying so hard to catch up on work. Depressed and spacey and tired now.

My daughter has mild adhd and works with the public in a shop environment.
She only works 3 days a week, and she sees the toll it takes on her boyfriend
who works 5 days a week.

When I was young, those first 4 years out of high school, I worked 5 days a
week, but I was working in a restaurant kitchen so didn't have to deal with
people all day. These last 13 years I was working 1 day a week cleaning a
beauty salon/spa so again didn't have to be "personable" with other people.

You're right, not wanting to deal with other people all day every day doesn't
make you weak. It means you recognize that it's not one of your strengths.
Being depressed makes it even harder to do that. I suffered from seasonal
depression for years, starting every August and lasting well into February.
Zoloft has been a tremendous help with that.

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part V

What's bothering me right now is that I'm going back into the workforce in about two weeks after a 6 mon hiatus.

I know beforehand that I will have severe difficulties spending time in one place (one chair) for 8 hours a day. When free I've been walking and biking a lot. Have spent a few hours per day working on my own stuff if my mood was right.

I find very little understanding from (few) friends and relatives about my situation. They're happy that I will be working again, so I'm hoping I won't let them (or my employer) down.

It just does not seem like a long-term solution for me. I've been considering a career change to something that is easier to do part-time (software development is not). Right now it seems like it's either 0 or 100%, why is it so hard to find something inbetween?

I need and truly enjoy some social interaction but all day/every day was absolutely draining. Also I'm not hyperactive, but at various times during the day I suddenly couldn't stand being at my desk and would jump up like a cat, and go off on some fictional "errand" to the mail room for folders or something.

I think a lot of us here find socializing exhausting including myself even though at the same time, I need people too.

Sorry your workplace tires you out so. Do your coworkers treat you poorly or is it just that they like to brag or are super competitive or something?

I work currently four days a week and have applied to change my hours to three days. I feel a bit guilty about that but I need that time to do something for myself. Like lunacie said adjusting your work so that it fits your personal circumstances is not weak. It's smart. No one benefits from a burnt out worker.

But yeah the catching up is just endless isn't it? I feel like with every passing minute that I've got more to catch up on. It's like everyones minutes have sixty seconds but mine have only 40.
