Here goes work day number 2. Feeling like I can’t do this. My moods and sleep schedule just can’t handle it. I don’t know what to do…

      I underdstand that. Work is extremely hard for me with my manic highs and depressive lows. I try to keep a running thought of knowing that I need to have money to be able to live. I did realize that having a job that is not only fulfilling financially, (I don't make a ton of money, but enough to live) but purpose fulfilling as well has really helped. I have been a waitress, cashier, factory worker, and now I am currently an early childhood teacher. I am in love with the work I do, some days are harder than others but in the end I love it.

      Be nice to yourself and it’s okay if you can’t do something. I’m like that most times.

      Deep breaths. Use the grounding method.

      today was the first day in I dont know how long that I didn't have bad insomnia the night before. I feel so sleep deprived and crazy. I'm scared I won't be able to keep my job or stay in school because of it. I'm about to graduate with a degree in elementary ed and if I can't get it together within the next year it's over with. so I feel you 100%

      I can hardly work part time. I used to have a good career and left it behind. I moved to a small town. I mostly teach youth to ski in the winter but they didn’t hire me this year cause I resigned because of Covid. I’m semi retired and make money. Also waiting on my disability. I’m sorry you struggle with work. I understand. Try to get disability if you can.

      I completely understand. I keep having to work 12 hour days because my coworkers keep calling out. There really isn't anyone trained to fill the position so I have to either come early, stay late or get called in on my days off... I am so so tired.. I'm so tired that I cried out of exhaustion. I have slept in my car at work off the clock before going home some days.. I just need time if to get my head together.. My coworkers don't understand the effects of them calling off every week.. I feel like I might lose it..

      I know exactly how you feel. Today is my off day, but I’m always called in. I think I’m going to break if I get called in. I know it’s exhausting, however find the strength to work. Mine is my family, my dogs need food so I work so that they can eat and have toys.

      I just got fired due to attendance issues around my mental and physical health. Dr wants me to go on disability but that feels like such a failure to me personally
