I've worked as a temporary worker at the local Kraft-Heinz, loading plastic cups into the machines, getting boxes for people who are loading the cups, taking cardboard to be baled, and general clean up surrounding that whole process.
It's not hard. Well, at least not for the normies. If I were healthy, it'd be the perfect job to basically get paid, and more than minimum wage, to be a mindless zombie for six hours at a time.
For me, it can be taxing. The pain, feeling slow, and just not having the energy. Plus, how I'm affected mentally, apart from just the sluggishness, it's hard to wear a mask for my coworkers, especially the ones that are abrasive.
I just want to tell them to go **** themselves sometimes. lol
I'm trying to get on at the hospital though, somewhere in the dietary section - either in the kitchen, or as a catering assistant, one of the people who delivers meals. Applied for both.
That latter would be better, because the shifts are only like 3.5 hours (just around meals), and I wouldn't have to wear a mask for very long, more than just a smile and the one or two lines of greeting and/or small talk, and dealing with an extra orders the people make when I deliver the rest. I worry about having trouble remembering my way around though.
Now, the other position pays more, and would require me to be less of a peoppe person, and I'd likely stay in about the same area every day, which would be good, but I've no doubt those things come at a higher cost = more hours in a day, more work.
Either one would be nice though, 'cause the truth is, I'd want to be working there anyway, if I weren't sick. I'd still like to be, if/when I'm not, or at least not as much.
That said, just being in the building and being able to call myself an employee would give me so much inspiration. Oh, and let's not forget that the pay will be better, even at such an entry-level position.
But, honestly, I doubt I'll make it past the phone screening. I just can't function fast enough to hold up a real conversation in person. I'm going to prepare, but I don't know how I will be feeling in that moment, what all will be asked, etc.
I will try though. Sigh.
Sorry for making that about me. I mean, you asked, but I kind of just went on and on.
I don't want to be working, not really. It hurts. I wish I could just stay home, get all the medicines I'd like, do all the health things, and try to get better, but I can't. I live with a relative rent-free, but no one cares enough/can afford enough to pay for what I need, not even me really.
I have to work, otherwise it's live sick, which isn't living at all.
It's hard finding something that works, yeah. Nothing too hard on the body, nothing too reliant on the mind, and nothing involving a huge amount of customer service, and also, if you can, nothing that pays like garbage.
Jobs like that take time and luck.
Again, sorry for the wall of text. YOU MADE ME DO THIS.
