I think I just need to get some frustrations out.
I'm completely overwhelmed at work and I think it is affecting my whole outlook. Ugh. There are a lot of things going on that are out of my control and I am doing the best I can to keep up, but it just feels like we are attacked every time I turn around. That and we have an overwhelming amount of things to take care of and accomplish this year, with a lot of "holes" in our organization from people who have left, been terminated, out on leave etc. Lately I've really been questioning whether this is the right fit for me long-term, as there seems to be no career progression, and just a lot of scrutiny on everything I do, despite me trying to bring issues to the forefront at every step of the way.
On top of this, I received a fb email from one of my brother's friends this weekend (very concerned, asking what he can do to get brother some help). Apparently, 4.5 short months after being hospitalized for a brain injury/skull fracture, he again fell down the steps and cracked open his head, requiring 10 staples. Oh and the cops had to restrain him b/c he was so combative and refused to go to the hospital. Lovely. Just another night of drinking for him. My parents have yet to tell me anything, but I guess I did make it pretty clear to them that I was cutting him out and was not interested in being a part of his life until he accepted that he has a problem and did something to correct it.
Okay, any words of help/inspiration, or just a supportive "that sucks", would be greatly appreciated from my nestie friends. Thanks ladies.
