Just promoted to senior and I’m failing at my job. I feel like I’m constantly letting my managers down since I find it so hard to be productive at home. I’m at mess and so behind on everything. I would do anything at this point to be able to work in the office and have my work life normal again.

For supply chain company drivers: What do you do if you need a rest? It's known that people who are sleep shouldn't handle heavy machinery, but we are not allowed to take breaks or stop for long periods of time as it messes with the schedule, even if we drive 10+ hours at a time.

I just have such difficulty labeling racist and micro aggressive behavior. It doesn’t make sense to me that people can be so racist when they’re this highly qualified and educated. Having my therapist and friends label that for me has been incredibly helpful. Changing my job and realizing that it was a toxic work environment has incredibly helped my mental health as well. Relocating to my new place would be the last piece of the puzzle.

Moved to industry thinking it’d be easier and less stressful. Definitely easier but the stress now is coming from never knowing if I’m doing a good enough job because I’m not as busy as I used to be.
