No social life and no time to look after my house…regularly changing shift schedules at the store and at the hospital…very little sleep…and growing resentment that I no longer had time for myself.
This week, two of my co-workers at the store gave notice that they are resigning. My evening counterpart at the hospital gave two weeks notice as he found a good position with another organization. We are understaffed at both the store and at the hospital and I am being asked how I can help to cover the hours lost due to the resignations.
I can’t take on additional hours or shift changes without ruining my health or having a time conflict between the two positions.
Today, I gave three weeks notice at the store. I will finally be able to make the hospital position a priority even though I don’t know if I can make enough money to pay my monthly expenses. But perhaps I can even enjoy my life a bit more.
I hope I made the right decision.
