It's Very Draining

Times are hard for the employed and especially the unemployed. So many people are hanging onto jobs that make them miserable. Just a paycheck and nothing new on the horizon.   Depression and feeling like this is all it's ever going to be.   What a wonderful feeling to go to a job you love..really look forward to. I think those workers are healthier too .Hating a job leads to hopelessness .Switching to new opportunities is the best idea but not's just a gamble if you can find any new work at all.  Maybe this is a reason for more depressed people then ever before?   I have to remind myself to be grateful for what I have..I want to do a good job even if I don't like it everyday.

Anxious is right .What a sickening feeling.Plus, how healthy can it be?

Yep! Me as well.I'm trained and I have skills. Everyday I feel down because I don't want to go in. Looking for a new field is fine.. I just don't see anything..Stuck in a rut. & being afraid to face the job PabloHoney, is so terrible. I hope it turns out alright for you. It sounds seriously sad.
