...support...yeah, I KNOW it's a bad play on words, but still! <_<

I'm still barely hanging onto this job of mine, but it's a week to week thing right now, and the stress alone is giving me almost daily headaches, not to mention the medication(called strattera) I've recently started to see if it will help with attention/focus issues at work and home causing some side effects(notably even more pronounced mood swings)....

Not much is going right in my life right now; still at home trying to get a decent car, back into my apartment, and so on...and could sure use some friends about now...self-esteem's never been my thing, so any help/cheering up you could provide would be immensely appreciated, and thanks in advance!

Don't worry Mike, everyone has his bad times. I encourage you to take a deep breath, have a talk with your soulmate (and those you work with if possible) about those feelings you're having, and try different solutions: a walk in the park, snack at a peacefull bar, copying a drawing, read a book aloud, anything different from your routine. Maybe you can find something to ease your stress.

Oh, and most of all, -> #em0 <-


Small note: It would help some if you could share what you exactly do in your work. Sure that it's ok about not revealing, but saying some details could make others understand what you're having and help you better.

Well, I presently work at 1 of Chattanooga's 2 Amazon.com warehouses, formally known as 'CHA1'...it's a 'Stow' job, meaning, I'm putting stuff on the VAST aisles of bins for other workers to pick out for getting ready to send to customers...ANYthing Amazon.com sells can theoretically end up on those shelves...and that's part of the problem for me....

There's no doubt I can do the job...I know the hows, whys, etc...but you also have to keep one's rate(read: speed) up...and that's causing all the trouble for me...there's a LOT of walking involved, and while that isn't so much the issue, I'm -very- easily distracted(stupid ADHD), so that slows me down...a lot.... I think they're trying me out in a few different departments there to see if there's anything else I can do reasonably well before they have to let me go....

I'll look at the video links everyone has left soon enough!

=edit=

I love all the vid links, especially that 1st one with the song...could almost become my own theme song here....

...on a related note to another link, watching this one, for some silly reason, ALWAYS makes me feel better...:



...it also always makes me comment to myself, 'dammit, Decade!! That's not what we meant by 'dinner and a show!'' Very Happy

Hang in there! You already know you can do the job. One of the other departments should work out for you! Here's a soothing song to calm your nerves.

May 20 update/edit:

Things have gotten worse....

Job's gone as expected, and the hunt is being delayed while we look into options regarding what's left of the teeth in my mouth...in all likelyhood, I'll be getting dentures soon(at 39...), and this'll require a LOT of work(including oral surgery), which is all but assured of wiping out the money I'd been able to save since getting home last September for a possible car...I don't do dentists well to begin with, and I've been through a similar situation once before, having 7 teeth extracted via oral surgery...kept me totally out of commission for 2-3 days...; but without this work, the odds on me getting a job are slim, thanks to an old crown being out right in the middle of my lower teeth.... Crying or Very sad

So yeah; still stuck at home, no job, about to lose what little $ I'd saved on VERY uncomfortable tooth-work, and no hope for my own nice little private life anytime soon. confused

Dunno what to do anymore, so if I'm acting hostile/strange to anyone ingame, I'll apologize in advance now.... Sad
