Stressed or Fed Up?

April 7, 2014
I’ve mentioned on my previous blogs that I’ve been very stressed at work lately. For some, this may only be a figure of speech to describe that they’re busy at work. It’s not really the case for me though as I’ve had some serious symptoms of stress.

It’s been really busy for the past few days and it’s not even the peak season yet.

Seriously, I need to learn how to detach my personal life from my professional one. I have this annoying habit of worrying about petty work-related things. If I made a mistake, no matter how small or big it is, I will be bothered by it until I finally solve it. And because I’m bothered, I could not sleep well at night – like right about now. I just finished working out playing wii and my whole body want

Suicidal Moments at work

** name has been changed to protect the ignorant *** Phone rings * Me: Good morning! This is noemi how may I help you? L: Hi Noemi, just a quick question.
