I have been feeling pretty low about my job for a long time now. I work in an office and am really bored and fed up and now it is really starting to eat away at me. I have been feeling like this for a long time now, probably a year or so. I am taking steps to change career and have done part time courses and do volunteer work which makes me a little anxious but I am happy about these things because they help me to move on from the office work in the end.
Often I have a terrible feeling of dread and find it difficult to get up in the mornings. Even at the weekend I find myself sleeping for hours and not wanting to get up to do any things I used to enjoy. I have lots of hobbies but I can't really be bothered anymore. I feel as though I am being dragged down by my full time job but I am trapped by it because of financial commitments, I know one day I will get out of it and I will be able to change career once I finish studying but that is a few more years down the line and I feel as though I cannot make it through. It feels like forever.
I have avoided going to the doctor so far because I don't want to depend on tablets or anything but now I am thinking that it is getting harder and harder to get up and face the day maybe I need to. I also get chronic migraine and have had this for years and am seeing a specialist about this and also having hormone tests because this could be part of the problem.
Thanks for reading can anyone give me some advice?
