Gotta get a handle....

Saturday, September 30, 2017

Hello everyone,
Quick blog regarding how stress can make a person react. Definitely Not in good ways.
Since my last blog....well really for probably a week before that...sugar has been "a must" at least once a day.
The days will start out pretty well, with deliberate plans to workout, get 10,000 steps in every day. Then something happens that's out of my control and that plan fails.
I will admit that a lot of it is my fault for allowing things to get to me. Still haven't found a reliable way to destress. Haven't really been trying hard enough either. I know there are ways. Need to start practicing them to find what works.

Still determined to find another job. Get rid of some of this stress. Am not working hard enough toward that end either. Need to work on another resume to put out, but I'm afraid that if I do put it out there that my boss will see it out there also. Then I will lose my job the harder way. I'm not ready for that.

Then again, I know they need me there. Being that there are only 4 of us that are capable of doing most of the work in our office, and two of us four are ready to retire, that means that it will be at least another couple of years of training any persons they hire to take even the two retirees places. Years that the one remaining person wouldn't be able to do this herself if I leave. Years that the two that want to retire won't want to keep working to train....and this is IF the new people even stay. We haven't had much luck getting people to stay in this business.

Sorry. Needed to get this off my chest before the rest of the weekend is over and the new week begins. Won't have any other time off until at least the end of October, when my 58th birthday hits. Still can't believe that one either.

Thanks for reading and have a good Sunday. Blessings. emoticon

    Yes, sounds like you have job security Speded2 said. I would do what makes you the happiest-don't bother with worrying about what they will think of your decision to move on. Take it a step at a time, day at a time. Try not to turn to sugar or bad foods during stressful times...I know that is easier said than done-I do it too....hard habit to break! Hope things improve for you soon on the job front and stress front. Keep going on those steps-it really helps with the stress!!! emoticon

    If you need to take a day off of work to look for another job, do it. It seems that the current working situation has not been supportive for a long time.

    You need to take care of you. No one else can do that for us. I worry about you, Jules. emoticon

    I really do have to agree w/SPEED2's point . . . . with your capabilities, you really do have them over a barrel it would seem. And TOTALLY agree that you have had so many things going on with your own health, you NEED to make that a priority . . . taking care of you.

    Lots to ponder. I find w/these kinds of situations I start with a pro and con list. That helps put things in black & white. I am SURE I'm preaching to choir, just sayin'.

    Making things fun helps you to keep doing them as it also makes you want to do them. This will help you destress

    I know exactly how you a feeling. It finally clicked with me that I need to make getting healthy a priority. There is nothing wrong with making yourself a priority... Sending you lots of positive energy vibes

    If you're the only left to train, if you're the only capable of producing, I'd say you have them right where you want them. Ability is a good bargaining tool. Maybe if the company sees your resume, they will wake up to the fact what a valuable employee you are. emoticon emoticon emoticon
