I just don't want to do anything.

Maybe watch TV or something. There's a couple games I like.

Pretty grey lately.

My back hurts all the time.
A coworker makes my skin crawl because he's so unaware of his behaviour that he doesn't understand social contracts at all. He's not on the spectrum, he's just lovely and inconsiderate.

I live in an at-will state.
Thankfully my job is exempt because it is a looming cloud of dread for thousands of people.

My Gf was once fired because she and her coworker went out for lunch, coworker got drunk and the boss fired them both because "the whole thing was unprofessional."

gently caress that place, gently caress those people.
gently caress at-will employers.

I have been having random seizures that cause me to just stand/sit and stare into nothingness for hours and lose all ability to verbalize. I ended up in the hospital because I had one last night while I was shopping and they called the police because I was "acting erratic". The cops were actually super nice and called and ambulance, but now I have a HUGE hospital bill to pay and I feel like a freak that can't leave the house.

Also no driving (my one true love!) for at least a year.

My neighbors were litterally throwing themselves into the walls so hard that stuff was getting knocked off my shelves.

For three hours.
On a Monday night.
Until about 3 am.

I don't live in a crappy building so this behavior is uncommon.

It was so bad that I had to call the cops, which now makes me officially an old man.

I have two coworkers in their 60s.
They don't pay attention to the conversation in the room until halfway through and then interrupt us in a condescending way.

They're the worst employees we have and they are constantly talking about how young people are lazy.

I got called for jury duty and feel unwell about it.

I genuinely like jury duty. But then again my work is such that I don't miss out on anything and get paid in full.

It's a fun little vacation where you get to see the dumbest motherfuckers in town.
Last time I was scheduled for two days, 9-5.

Each day they excused us just after 10 so basically got two days free vacation.

Edit: It double helps that the first time I did it was a murder trial that could have been a movie. That poo poo was WILD.

I'm renting a room to a friend that's really down on his luck.

Great guy, trying really hard to scrape his life together.
He got some pet fish from a friend and a mere week later the aquarium fails and dumps water across his room and into the basement... which is also my room.

That's loving horrific management. Your manager (if they were competent) would have that info on hand. Good luck with whatever is coming :/

My boss is proud that he doesn't know what goes on in our team's day-to-day because he likes to be hands-off.
...which means that if I have an issue, he's not really equipped to deal with it.

I really don't want to work anymore.
I don't have any career path going, no real support where I'm at and no extra time/money to go after certifications or a degree.
My partner makes more than double my salary and is likely to get a significant raise soon.

I'm much more valuable maintaining the house/garden, cooking and looking after our animals.
I'm really good at that stuff but since I'm a dude, most people don't think it is viable or even appropriate. I'm just so very tired of wasting my days in a complete dead end job where, at the end of the day, neither of us have any energy left to keep the house.
She said she'd be more okay with it if we had kids... but we don't want kids and couldn't afford one with just one salary.

Sorry, I needed to vent but I feel stuck and useless.

My basement wants to flood at any opportunity.
My roommate left a hose running and the small trickle from the spigot (the hose end was on the other side of the yard) caused a puddle to form in my laundry room.

I had to have emergency construction done on my house that out me out for three weeks.

I was stuck in a hotel room with my fiance the whole time. A small room in a pandemic. She worked so I had headphones in the whole time.

I had to drain my PTO because I wasn't sure if the wifi would be stable and circumstances were such that I couldn't revoke my request.

So, no winter vacation for my birthday.
Instead I got three weeks in a stuffy room without so much as a decent laptop to keep me busy.

My anxiety is through the roof, which makes my depression worse, which means I can't do much beyond work (to stay alive).

I haven't read a book in a year. I don't draw or write anymore. I spend my free time idling wasting away and shitposting on SA.

I'm going to get a new therapist soon...ish but the next person that can get me meds in booked out to February. The pandemic has been less severe for me than most (kept my job, no family has been seriously affected) but I feel very hollow.

My partner has poo poo lungs and we cannot risk any COVID exposure because even a mild case could kill her.

I had to go in to my office to sign for some deliveries but they simply didn't show up. We set a firm time and I waited an addition 2.5 hours, just in case but they never showed.

We're all having a hard time with the pandemic but leaving my house is a very risky endeavor and I wish my job actually respected my time.

I keep running in to this issue where therapists don't believe that I'm depressed and riddled with anxiety because I'm a decently charming person. I get along with people really easily and they tend to trust me quickly because I don't manipulate people or cultivate relationships with an agenda (something I've learned is kinda rare.)

So during therapy I am "on" and can easily articulate my issues. I've told them that it's all a very well-practiced veneer that I can't really drop, so they few times it cracks, it feels somehow dishonest.

Getting meds is a loving nightmare in this state. No one I talk to really believes me when I tell them that my anxiety has dominated my life so much that I'm completely empty. Yeah I can hold down a job but that's about it.

How many therapists have you seen? If it's been more than two or three and they all are saying the same thing then maybe you don't need pills? Otherwise I'd say just go to different therapists until you find someone that will just cut you a prescription.

I've gone to a total of five over 15 years and the manifestation of the issues has changed over time. So I don't have a good enough sample size to make a good judgement.

The problem is compounded by having switched insurance just before the pandemic and I never got a new PCP established. No one is taking new patients because of COVID and none of the available therapists can prescribe and/or do not refer to folks who do.

Maybe I'm missing a critical element to this structure but American healthcare is such a clusterfuck that I'm moreorless resigned to just feeling bad all the time.

I don't have a project manager at work or even really a direct supervisor.

So I'm constantly guessing at what I'm supposed to be doing. Most days I think I could do absolutely nothing and nobody would notice.

That might be ideal for some but I love working and getting stuff done... but I can't do that without guidance.

I also now have a heart monitor plastered to my chest for a few weeks and have to carry around a second phone that is a monitor for the thing, so that's annoying.

That sucks. Deprogramming is really hard. My mom was heading towards the CHUD route but wised up soon after Trump was elected. Thankfully she didn't vote for him but it was touch-and-go for a while.

More depressing pet chat:

My oldest guinea pig is probably not long for this world. She's around 7 so pretty average age for dying but she's not showing obvious signs.
She's on some meds for issues that are not life threatening but she's sleeping much more than usual. She still eats and loves to cuddle but you can just tell.

Our first one upped and died suddenly about three months after getting him and we still don't know why. He just started coughing (something they're not supposed to do) and an hour later he was gone.

I don't want this one to pass yet. She was rescued from a hoarder that was breeding and eating them so we don't know exactly how old she is but we know she was at least old enough to have babies. Ugh.

Guinea Pigs are eaten in south america and some places in the US.

raised on farms, not in someone's overstuffed house, that is.

In South America they farm cuy guinea pigs, which are about 3X the size of American domesticated pigs.
The ones I'm talking about have nary a scrap of meat on them. She was hosed in the head and said she could only eat FRESH meat because she had MS.

Literally hundreds of guinea pigs, rabbits and dogs in Washington. Absolutely hosed.

Edit
The one in the center is part-cuy and the one on the right is a standard pet size.

My boss teed me up to talk about my project during a meeting and I get four words in before he goes, "Alright moving on..."
No explanation, no follow-up. It's not like I was going to implicate him in something, it was a simple status update.

I've given up on ever having a dream job but I sure would like one where I didn't feel like I was a bother to everyone (I'm the only non-engineer on my team, make of that what you will.)

Every job I’ve quit has been completely blindsided. They always think I’m super happy there because I must enjoy the job to be so motivated, but really I just don’t have settings that aren’t “full steam” or “so completely checked out I’m gonna get fired”

The past few months I was okay at doing kinda the minimum and skating by but now the guilt is racking up.

I just wish there was a promotion path for me but I can't even get a raise and I'm making less than average for my area.
