    I went to trade school for a well-paying job. I'm at the job and making good money. Therefore, I should be happy! I hate to tell this to you, but I'm not. Don't get me wrong, the money's good. But I have to kill myself every day to make it working both day and night and over the weekends. The work never stops. I've never been so depressed. I miss the simple old jobs I used to have, the Mon to Fri 9 to 5, your time was your own afterwards. Yes, I'm working from home. You think I'm lucky to be able to do that. Yes, but it doesn't stop. I stare into the computer screen 15 hours a day. I don't know what to do. Should I lose the job for my mental health? I've already asked for a light schedule, but I'm still doing heavy work. I really feel like giving up. I've failed everything. I'm exhausted now, so what's one more failure. I wouldn't even feel like looking for another job after this.

    get a note from your doctor stating the hours your work have to be decreased because of you health Get doctor to write how many hours yu are allowed to do no more if work pushes you to do more then get legal advice on how to get things change. Sometimes money is not everything can you get your old job back

    You may have a point there, as the computer is ruining my eyesight.

    It's a good thing the army makes you happy. Not everyone is cut out to join the army.
