Hey everyone, nice to finely be apart of the ATS community, sorry for this depressing introduction.
I'm a 22 year old male and I come from the United Kingdoms, I would like to make my introduction as well as ask some other members of the community a
few questions as I have been searching and searching yet nothing is ever related directly towards my questions.
I'm working Night shift (have been for a year and a half) and it is causing problems with me and my house mates I am never there to go shopping, I
barley get a say in the house hold because I am never there, its causing aggression problems as well due to the nature of the other worker I am
working with (He will sit around for hours on end and do nothing but when its time for him to work, he will come over and have a go at me for sitting
around because he actually has to do some work, the way he speaks to me as well infuriates me to no ends) I am being paid an extra 30 pounds a week
(Not a day, a week) to give up my social life and also my family life.
I feel stressed out to the point that I am barley eating correctly I start work at half past 6 and then I end up not eating till 12/1 oclock and
sometimes I even have to go to sleep because I try to eat and my stomach doesn't want any of it. I do not eat microwave meals (I don't believe that
something that can be popped in the micro for 10 minutes, radiated and then tastes like rubber is healthy) so I am left with a very weak diet and
anything I want cooked I have to do the night before or in the morning once I finish. I went from being 11 stone to 9 stone.
I'm tired of doing this fight day in and day out and was wandering if anyone could give me some form of advice, whenever the topic is raised with my
boss "I can do it so why can't you?" and the conversation ends with him saying "I'll have a look into this" or "I'll have a look into that"
yet he does nothing and I am left to suffer, to the point of emotional wreck as its been going on for quite some time, last year was slightly easier
but its got to the point that my emotional and mental stability is worth more than my job but if I leave it then it will be like before, I will be
forced down the ladder and to start from scratch (Not a professional ladder) but a life style wise, I would need to give up my dog, my house and then
go back to where I started 2 years ago.
If anyone else works night shift and has devolped problems through working the mong shift, then please all the advice would be welcome as I really
need to get myself out of this ditch.
