Chemical Hearts. - August 17th 2017, 01:37 PM

My work is literally going to kill me eventually. Not to be dramatic or anything? .

My name is Hamed and I am fifteen minutes away from returning to work after major jaw surgery, six weeks off. I am very nervous, but I am mainly extremely tired. I normally start getting tired and going to sleep at 10:30PM. It is now 11:18PM, and I start work at 12M, until 4:00AM. I have to stay up, to take care of nephew, until 2:00PM, and be woken up before starting work again tomorrow night. I was going to make a thread talking about how this was horrendous and how I couldn't wait to be reinstated to my University in six months, so I have an excuse to resign, but the fact is, I went to the computer, which meant that my brain restricted the flow of melatonin, which means I am no longer so tired.

I will take some caffeine and the existential crisis is over, until next time.

How do you deal with the fact that your emotions are just chemical processes with yes and no answers, is that a solace to you, or do you find it dehumanising? Also, thoughts on the work gig?

Hey there, Hamed!

It's understandable that you were nervous about returning to work after a leave of absence. Speaking of which, I hope it went well and you were able to get through your shift okay!

If working from 12AM to 4AM conflicts with your schedule too much, perhaps you could speak to your manager about working a different shift? It is also your decision if you want to resign now or wait until you are meant to reinstate to your University, but you need to consider what is best for you and the situation you are in.

In regard to the existential question you asked, everyone feels differently about these kind of things. Regardless of how I feel, how you feel and how you let it affect your life is what's important.

I hope you are able to work out a solution for your work schedule soon! It's rough when you have responsibilities that conflict with your ability to take care of yourself and get proper rest. I'd also recommend that you avoid electronic screens when you are in need of sleep. As you said, it makes it difficult to do so!

Take good care,

“There is nothing beautiful about the wreckage of a human being.
There is nothing pretty about damage, about pain, about heartache.
What is beautiful is their strength, their resilience, their fortitude
as they display an ocean of courage when they pick through the
wreckage of their life to build something beautiful brand new,
against every odd that is stacked against them.” — Nikita Gill
