I am ...well. Seems strange to say.
Though essentially doing the same job as before, my stress level has dropped considerably. I deal with a fraction of the number of customers I used to have. After two months they taught me how to handle orders from our shop, something they had just started to teach the last guy after nine. Barely three and they started to rotate Saturdays, leaving me alone to run the department once every three weeks. I handle most of the wholesale business now, including bodyshop orders, something I had no experience with before. Shops that wouldn't talk to the new guy at first already ask for me. I still don't want to do parts the rest of my life, but I seem to be good at it.
It's been difficult adjusting to the new schedule, being a night owl my entire life. I still love to go out and sing, but I've had to limit it. I have been sleeping better, though. Falling asleep much faster, but still some trouble getting up. Not nearly as much as before.
The biggest thing? I am off of all medication. No more antidepressants, no more anti-anxiety meds, no more sleep aids. Losing my insurance forced me to drop that crutch, as I knew it would. I feel better than I have in a long time. It feels like my mind can work again.
Okay, I'm tired of typing. Long story short, things are good and getting better all the time.
