I don't think I've ever been so happy that it's Friday. You see, up until April of this year I was one of those sickening people who LOVED their job. Seriously, people would ask me how work was and I would beam (most would roll their eyes at me)
Since April, when there was mass layoffs, it has progressively gone downhill. The work load tripled and everyone is on edge. Also, since then there has been a reorganization of roles and a good friend of mine moved to a different area and I got her previous workload. Although I had nothing to do with this change she blames me, we are no longer friends anymore and lately she is down-right nasty to me.
This week was the worst, I asked her for a report that she is responsible for getting out (nicely) and her response to me was vulgar, offensive and accusatory. This abuse combined with not smoking has really gotten me in a tailspin.
So needless to say the last 3 days I haven't worked out, I've eaten so-so and I've been physically ill.
I am going to use this weekend to get back on track, try to figure out how I'm going to work like this or if I'm going to have to leave which I really don't want to do since I've worked there for 7 years and other than this I enjoy my co-workers and my role. But I do know that I can't let this get me down anymore.

Day one of my quit I decided to write a goodbye letter to the cigarettes.
Farwell old foe,
Yes, foe, you have never really been a friend to me. Sure you have been there during the tough times in my life as well as all of the good times. But you have never really been what I needed just something that I did to cope, what I really needed was a friend.
You have ruined my relationships, my friendships, my health, my outlook. Well no more, I see you for what you are, a crutch and I no longer need you. I can deal with situations without you and without you I will start to improve my overall quality of life, so why would I keep you around?
Farwell old foe
