Since I last posted I have been doing contract work for a company for a year now. I am mainly a db admin but there are a lot of side projects I have to do outside my IT background. I am feeling a bit out of my element as of late. Just everything falls on my department when sometging goes wrong and I basically have to hold hands. I feel like to much is expected of me to get done with out doong over time. I feel insulted daily on the misuse of my departments time. I don't want to sound egotistical but when they have us doing things out of our element it is beneath us. Meaning rather it is something anyone can do and for what I am paid it is a waste of resources. But I am always behind in my actual work because I don't have the tims doing other people's jobs. I am just depressed, angry, frustrated, and fed up. I sit around thinking about blowing my brains out half the day because of these feelings. I know I can't do that because as of now I have 2 kids in my care since the last time I posted. I just can't stop my thoughts at work though.
