    Just Upset That I Have To Work

    I was forced out of a good teaching career by our state's lousy economy - no money for non-required classes. I'm too young to retire, so I work at a hardware store. I'm back to teaching a couple classes each day, but still need the hardware store income for another 4 years.My...

    It's Killing Me

    I want so many thing in my life, that my job has made them disappear. I work hard. And because I am good at what I do, I am overloaded, and have a lot of responsibilities. But that has made me an isolated depressed person! I want to stay home and watch stupid soup operas from...

    I Guess I Need A Bit Of Encouragement

    My boss never appreciates my work, though I am the best he's got, and probably one of the bests in my field. I have closed projects that 3 big companies failed in doing them. Yet I didn't even get a thank you!?!

    I Am A Nurse

    There are so many things I can say here about the high points of my job.  I can help others in a very tangible way.  I can bring love and comfort to those who are without love or comfort.  I can help take away pain and promote rest.  I can be instrumental in saving lives...
