Anxious

September 3rd, 2015 at 05:09 am

I haven't posted much because my mood has been horrible and I don't know what to do. As you know, I moved to FL for a job back in March. I do not love the job. I don't hate it, but it makes me extremely anxious. I have had very little training despite being told not to worry when I was hired. It is a new field for me. The little training I do get comes after I have to take care of items (i.e. budgets). I fear if something doesn't go right, I will be fired despite it really not being my fault. We work for very entitled people and my bosses will stick up for them to make them happy even if they are dead wrong. I am purposely being a bit vague since I am airing my grievances on the internet.

It makes me sad because I moved the whole family. We are "stuck" now. My son graduates in 2017 and has settled nicely, so I need to stay here for two years. I do like the area and can deal with the job for now. I guess all I can do is keep my eyes open for other opportunities in the area. It doesn't help that my husband has not found a job here yet and isn't putting in a whole lot of effort.

I had plenty of mystery shopping work in NH, but here the options are limited, but I am filling my weekends the best I can to try and save up more money in case anything does happen with my job.

I am a firm believer in things happen for a reason, so I will try my best to be optimistic that better times will be coming soon (I hope!).

Time to quit venting and head to work. Thanks for "listening".

    So sorry the opportunity isn't as you expected. And that it makes you so anxious is unsettling I'm sure. Definitely focus on what you can do and the other opportunities available to you.

    I am so, so sorry! Hang in there, though. Things may get better, and your anxieties may be unfounded. I do understand that your lack of training is a legitimate reason for anxiety. Be sure to document everything, even if it's just a casual work diary. Your employers may not be as biased as you think, when and if it all comes to a head. Meanwhile, I would look around for a better position. Life is too short!

    I understand the stress of feel in a new-to-you, arena of endeavour. Is there anything to do, on-line course to take, for areas that you perceive as weakness? Are SA participants doing the tasks that make you feel insecure? Perhaps they can make suggestions you might find helpful.

    Often time and repetition are the most helpful. Hope you're in a more comfortable zone soon.

    I'm sorry to hear that you are not liking your new job. Hopefully things will turn around soon.

    I'm sorry the job is not working out as well as you hoped. Have you tried to approach your direct manager and ask them about further training? You may think they will react in a certain way but that may not be accurate. I think you should at least go on record as having approached your managers about the lack of training if that was something they said you would have.

    Thank you everyone. My manager is my friend's husband so I am comfortable talking to him. I had a talk with him yesterday and I am hopeful things will improve. I feel guilty whining; I know I am fortunate to make a good salary. I will definitely be sticking it out, but will be on the lookout for other opportunities. Surprisingly, I find myself missing the education field!
