I just find that I take on too much when I am good and then can't handle it when I go down. It is very frustrating because I never know when when I am going to cycle and I cycle often.

I had a good job where my boss wisely kept me to about 32 hours a week. Then I changed units, same company, and found myself in a disorganized place, working full time hours with staff that didn't trust or respect me. Had a killer nervous breakdown where I could hardly function.

I would love to go back to work again, but would try to find a part time job with less stress. Good luck.

I work but only like 22 hours per week. I do ok with one boss, but I also work another division/job and I don't like her. But she trying to keep my job stress free. So I guess I feel ok about my job.
