|life is meant to live.|
enjoy your journey
|sounds like it's been emotionally, mentally and physically draining.|
You do right slowing down a bit and taking that extra time out with friends and family. 17 years is long time.
I wish you all the best, peace and happiness
|i understand what you mean to be burned out at job for 34 years. i think you made the right decision, the strain on you, i can be very difficult to you on the long run.|
i didn't have too many choices to where i was in job for 34 years. back then, there was no opportunity to choice really change a better job, trying go back to school didn't work for me. things in my life back then, could work better for me.
let me in my life back then, was more wishfully thinking than anything.
i tried once to find a another job in my 20's. i saved some money up. i quit for 6 weeks from work, to look for another job, but i couldn't find one. so, i went back to my family store.
i guess i build character to make myself strong and mature to tolerance bull crap of the job over 34 years. in some ways. the job, make a better person that learn look inside myself for strength. i had to have a paycheck to live on. no choice to live.
good luck, eagle, in new job. best things in your life is experiences. your have learn a lot in your life, grasshopper! use them what you have learn!
|No matter the reason, I'm sure you helped and touched many people over the years.|
It's about time to move the needle a little from "others" towards "self"
Are you dispatching field techs for service calls?
|Welcome to the land of the living. As you know, I joined it last September, and I've got to say that it's wonderful. I actually see people that I know from places other than work, and we talk about things other than work, and I have breakfast in the mornings and eat dinner in the evenings..|
Being awake during the day is an adjustment, but after a couple of weeks it will come naturally again, and you'll start to wonder how you did what you did for so long.
I have to say that I'm a little jealous, because you get days AND weekends, where I just got the days part, but good for you. It'll make a huge difference in your life.

|Good luck with the new job, my friend. I'm glad that you are doing what you need to take care of yourself!|
|Know it's not a decision you made lightly, to leave|
after 17 years on the job. There will be some moments
of doubt most likely, recognize it and then keep on keepin' on
with your new lifestyle. Best of luck! You earned it!
|This sounds like a remarkable change of events. I myself have started a new job in the IT field. Day three and full of adventure.|
. I'll basically be the only one in the company running scheduling, allocation of resources and coordinating with vendors, escalating problem tickets for clients
This alone is an awesome feature and not to take lightly in importance and impact. My current job is similar in that I am my own department, and it makes all the difference in the world in terms of job satisfaction.
That and having weekends free.
Good luck, you'll do very well I'm sure, knowing you. Exciting times.
|Congratulations on your imminent survival!!!! You will be quite happy, I'm sure, to move onto a less stressful activity, and spread a little joy while you still can.|
