I like what I do, but I hate my job....I had this problem before I left for maternity leave, but durning my leave I thought maybe I was just a unhappy preggo woman, and maybe things would be different when I returned...nope.... I am a social worker, and. ILOVE being a social worker...but I am so tired of being treated like crap. And not appreciated by my bosses....it's not the job, it's the organization and administration.... I really didn't want to return to work immediately after baby was born to begin with....add to that having to return 6 weeks Post partum, and hating the place I had to spend 50 hours a week at and you have me....sitting in the pumping room crying..?.angry that I leave my children every day to be here .... We're also dealing with finding out my 7 year old has a learning disability and is falling way behind in school (and. He cries every night whe we get him to do his homework), plus our 5 year old just got diagnosed with aDHD, and were struggling with him....now add my guilt that a lot of thesroblems are because I leave my kids all day for someone else to raise because we cannot afford for Me not to work ft.... Sorry for the pitty party....I'm just so upset and feeling overwhelmed and un appreciated... I wonder if I'm doing the right thing.......

((((hugs))))

I'm so sorry you're miserable in your job :( I struggled last year, when my work situation kinda spiraled out of control, and I ended up resigning and taking a big leap of faith into a new job. I actually work more hours now, but a better schedule for us.

Anyhow, that doesn't necessarily help you except to know you're not the only mom who struggles w/ the return to work. You are definitely not alone. I hope that you can find a job that meets your needs better than this lousy one!

(((((more hugs)))))

One day at a time is all you can do. I knew my place had politics but being out of the fray for 14 weeks for maternity last year made it all the more clear. I am miserable each and every day with no solution in site. To top it off, I drive 100 miles round trip to be miserable every day. Just keep searching, it's all we can do.
