It sounds like you have some issues that need to be changed. I don't know how you are still working full time. I am down to 3 days (go in only 1 day & answer calls from home 2 days).
It is too bad that you have to go in so early. What do you do for those couple of hours? That would make me tired going in early every day like that.
As for getting your own office, maybe if you asked for partitions and tried that first. It might be enough to block out at least most of the things that are bothering you. Maybe not the noise, but it might lighten it a bit.
If it gets to be so bad that you are hurting too much and are unable to get through the days, then I would start thinking of SSDI. I am going to file in the Spring. I know by the way I am going now that I just won't be able to do my job anymore. I know that I cannot do the job duties I was hired for, so not working is my only other choice. You can't get an easier job. I am a Secretary/Bookkeeper and I can make my own hours and do whatever I want. I am the only one so I really have it made. It makes me sick to know that I will have to give it up. I guess when you get to a certain point, you just have to.
I hope you are able to work things out & you get to feeling better. Please feel free to ask quesions or keep us posted. We are all one big family here!
Never regret something that made you smile!
