I know I've mentioned that I recently stepped down from being a Manager at my company and took a position as a Business Process Analyst. This meant that I lost some money, am in a lower bonus band, and went from full time telecommuter to a full time commuting back to the office.
It's been about a month now and all I can say is WOW! I'm much happier, feel more relaxed, and am enjoying working for the first time in several years. I'm not delusional. I know I have both mental health and substance abuse issues. A new job won't change that. But maybe, just maybe, I see that there is still light in the world and being a part of said lighted world is nice.
Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.
