Stressful Ramblings- On

For a while now, even when I seem to get plenty of sleep... I feel sluggish and irritable. I have no energy... I can't stand the slightest noise and get angry at the slightest inconvenience. I drank a 5 hour energy shot... and 10 minutes later I fell asleep and slept for 5 hours.

Corporate told my boss to let me go, that I was costing them too much money and was working too much overtime. He refused. Then they told him to use me in some other position @ 40hrs per week at a lower pay rate. He refused.

Today when I returned to work to begin my week, I couldn't find my boss anywhere....

He was fired. Gee, I wonder who's next???

Last Friday I was rushed to the emergency room by a coworker. I was dizzy and had a terrible pain in my chest that went all the way through to my back...I was nauseous and was having intermittent pain down my arm and in my jaw. My blood pressure was 235/ 135...

Three hours later I was back at work with a bottle of blood pressure medication ...after being told I did not have a heart attack and that my blood work was good.... liver and kidney function were normal... but should make an appointment with a cardiologist for a stress test anyway.

Stress test...if my life is not one big stress test, I don't know what is....

Update....11/24/09

Today I met with the new management, and they have evaluated my performance over the last year and have decided to keep me....they have found not one thing they will not back me up on, and have told corporate that they intend to keep me as I am a valuable asset to the company...

They have also increased my expense account, and have given me more freedom in the interpretation of my capacities....

That's an awful experience; no one should have to go through that. =(<br />
I'm glad to see your update though, that at least as far as your job is concerned you're ok. Have you talked to a doctor about such a lack of energy? I hope everything will be alright and that that situation gets better soon.

WOW - AWESOME!!<br />

Speechless, I am sorry you're going through this much stress. It really IS a jungle out there right now, but NO job is worth killing yourself over. Everyone has to find his or her own way to cope. I hope you're able to find relief from stress and worry soon so you can get back to enjoying your life. We only get one.

Get that resume updated and out there my friend.. I hate corporate america! No humanity.<br />
<br />
It's gonna all work out Speechless. <br />

Here's wishing you a much less stressful Friday. And hugs!

Stress is aweful on you . I am sure thats what it is-hugs

Sounds like you really need to get away. Nobody ever laid on their deathbed and wished they had worked more. :-/ Take care, please. Just think about it.

I hear this same story over and over. It's a cruel world we live in. I vote for the margaritas though. How can you feel stressed over a margarita?

That is stress.......<br />
<br />
Come over this weekend and a bucket of margaritas will be waiting for the two of us.....<br />
<br />
Then we can let the stress go.....
