BustOfPallas Posted July 23, 2011 Share Posted July 23, 2011 Hey y'all. Reached something of a breaking point this week. I resigned/rejected a good paying full time job offer that also would have been a nice career move because, well I kind of hated it, and my chair was torturing me to death via my nerve damaged taint/gooch/nether region (insert chronic pain reference here). I dunno. I'm kind of in uncharted territory so you folks may be seeing a lot of me here in the days weeks to come. I think this site seems full of intelligent people (not as smart as me though) that have reached a level of healthy acceptance of their mental health state whatever it may be. Lot's of good humor here. Interesting people. I've always thought the worst thing you could be was boring so interesting is good. Although I think there is some sort of Chinese blessing/back-handed curse about living in "interesting" times... So I've been dealing with sleep deprivation (due to chronic pain), general anxiousness and a bout with extreme fear a few years back when the company I was working for was losing a long term contract amidst cronyism, lawsuits and witch hunts due to IT security issues with this ancient system we worked on. I've had some issues since then and about 18 years after finishing a rough time while in engineering school in late teens early 20's I'm back to having so much stress I might need to give another go of the mental health care "machine" again. Although I have to say that I believe that if you need that "machine" your in trouble because I wasn't that that impressed my first go around and didn't like being subjected to it. I never felt like one thing I took back then did squat for me and in hindsight it might have made me worse. I worked my way out of it by taking care of my problems i.e. education, job etc. and everything else fell into place. Anyway please to meet you all and thanks to whoever set this up. Marvelous job. Just the right tone. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
