I am suffering from depression due to boredom at work!
I would like to tell you my story!
I have the same boring work like you. My bosses do not share info with me, they kept all info from me. I have another boss who is a useless jerk! He knows nothing but like to behave like he knows everything! I come to work like a zombie from 9 to 6. Then I proceed home. Everyday is the same like this. I am on the verge of a nervous breakdown, not because I have lots of things but because I have practically nothing to do. I surf web from 9 to 6! I do my homework sometimes. I have even gone to the extent of stapling the papers and removing them one at a time!
I cant afford to be jobless because of the huge committment. Yet nobody knows my suffering! I am a very capable person and my competency level is quite high, yet my skills are not utilised at work!
The boredom at work is causing me depression and my family and feel it and because I starts shouting at them when back home. I get insomia on a daily basis! The thought of going to a boring workplace haunt me so much that I have thought of committing suicide at the workplace and hopefully I will come back to haunt these people!
I have tried finding other jobs but its the employer's market now, jobs are limited but takers are plentiful! I really have no idea what I should do.
If I quit now, I will have to face the tremendous pressure of being jobless (which is much worse). I cant talk to anyone here because I dont trust my colleagues at all! They have a tendancy of stabbing your back when you are not watching! Pls help!
Oh my goodness things are bad if you are talking about committing suicide. But if you really are having these thoughts then you have to ask yourself, is quiting your job REALLY worse than killing yourself? think of your family.
Have you thought about tring to start your own online business in a small way that you can do part time, evening etc. I know many people who start out this way and end up creating a full time job for themselves. It's worth thinking about.
