I have a very stressful job (I guess a doctor who makes it stressful). I work in a clinic and one of the doctors is so efficient he can see upwards of twenty patients a day. But in order for him to do that, he constantly is breathing down my neck. Something is missing on his chart, he needs an MRI on this patient, bring this patient in early. Today, I wanted to scream at him. He was driving me nuts. Also, we are short staffed. My main coworker is on vacation, but she'll be back Monday. One of the techs just had a baby and isn't coming back (they haven't filled her position yet, but they are interviewing), so I was alone in the office today, registering, trying to keep on top of the phones, and trying to get some of my coworker's work done before she comes back.
I come home sometimes with headaches and I'm grouchy with my husband. The stress I experience in my work life affects every aspect of my home life. This year has been so stressful that I have managed to gain almost twenty pounds. I am also dealing with high cholesterol. I really want to start a family soon and I also want to be around for my husband. But I am scared because my health is not the greatest right now. I am afraid of dying early and missing out on what life has to offer. I get a free membership to the YWCA through my job, but have no motivation to go. At the end of the day, I just want to get home to my husband. I have considered going in the morning before work, but don't know exactly how that will work out yet. If anyone has any suggestions or motivation for me, please message me or comment here. Thank you.
