I have done just about everything to keep my team afloat in the last 6 months and my boss who left on Friday has let me know how much he appreciated everything I've done to help him by changing shifts on zero notice, working on my days off, covering for other peoples mistakes and teaching them how to fix problems themself. It has been a constant battle since day one as we are badly short staffed.

Today I got left on my own running the helpdesk which should have 6 people on it, because of some stupid pointless meeting and ended up working almost an hour after my shift finished because they were still in the meeting room. Not to mention the fact I am covering the team leader role without any recognition or a pay rise. To top it all off I ended up in a collision after work when some idiots walked out in the road forcing the van in front of me to brake suddenly and I had no time to react. Luckily he was fine and there wasn't any damage to his van, my car on the other hand has plenty of damage and won't start. Of course though, me hitting him makes it my fault.

Sorry to sound like such an ass, I know there are far bigger problems in the world but it feels like the more I give the more I get kicked in the face for it.
Hey! You must work with me!

Do you work at CC too?

I even broke out in eczema about 4 months ago which then got infected I and couldn't walk or drive without being in sheer agony as it was on the back of my knees, but if I had given in the doctors note and taken the time off my team would have lost the contract.

Maybe I should have let them, I'd probably be in a less stressful role if I had!

Ugh, that stinks. You are allowed to have a pity party for yourself over it. The stress from a job that requires that much from you adds up and over even a short period of time impacts your health. Sorry that I don't have a way to fix the problem but at least you can come here to vent a little and have others hear what you are saying.

Exhausted! We were in Pensacola, FL all day today cashing my wife's student refund check because our bank wanted to put a 10 day hold on it. While we were there we did some shopping for Emily's birthday (she will be 5 & we are having one party Saturday while Benaiah is still with us & a smaller one next Sat when my sister from NC will be here with her little girl). I finally broke down & bought a Matt Hughes action figure! Kim got a Rich Franklin one. After we got home, I let Emily play with them for a little bit. She went over to the couch & told Grandma, "These guys are about to fight, but they're friends because they both love God and Jesus." Lol! She is such a sweetie!

I feel unsettled today and I'm not exactly sure why.

Sorry to see you have been burned by someone... People suck sometimes. I'm sure your day will turn around.
