    How Do I Feel About My Job? Totally Bipolar.

    I've had a few jobs in this field now. In one, my supervisor was highly critical to the point of stupidity. I don't mind criticism as long as it is constructive and leads to greater understanding and improvement, but that supervisor kept changing the rules.  Like in a...

    So far, the experience having to do with

    regular human work and rest schedules is still impossible to get accustomed to. I'm not sure if I should be thankful or not, in realizing my body and will refuse to be hypnotized by habit. To be back at work after a vacation is always difficult, in the past it's even made me...

    I love my job as a nurse most days,

    I enjoy taking care of patients and helping them to feel better, on the other hand I hate all the red tape dealing with the medical field, it seems to be getting worse as time goes by, now the joys of dealing with Ebola!

    Having done my job for 19yrs,

    I must like it. Started at 22 and at that time you retired after 30yrs. But thanks to our wonderfully inept coalition government, I now have to work until I'm 60, but paying more into my pension (13.5% instead of 11%) for far less back in return. Not to mention the constant...
