I was 'let go' from my previous job of fifteen years at the end of February this year and thought I would be unemployed for quite a while. I have however started a temporary job which should last around 2 - 3 months last week and am enjoying it very much. It is totally different to my previous role but I'm beginning to realise that in my previous role at the hospital I worked maybe a lot more hours without pay than I should have and put so much into each day that I was usually very tired at the end of each day. In this new role which I'm temping at, I keep asking for more work and being told that I am working too fast and trying to do too much. I am just so used to squeezing as much as possible out of myself when working that I don't know how to take it easier. When I lost my job I thought that I was probably unemployable having done the same role for so long but now I realise there is probably a better way of life out there and you just have to look for it.
