I have a medical excuse. One of the reasons I quit was due to stress, I am being treated for stress by a team of medical professionals. Also I don't have health insurance so that is burning through cash very quickly.
It is not a disability however. I do not qualify for disability at this moment. Honestly I'd rather just off myself, if I run out of money I will do that.
Cry me a river. I've been working asshole boss for 42 years.
I'm self employed.
It is not the stress BH but how you handle it.
I'll tell you a secret now, how do you handle it ?
You don't. You learn to let it roll off your back as some say.
If you get paid by the hour fuck it. There should be no stress. Of course there is aggravation, but it is YOUR mind that creates the stress. I can give you a similar example with anger.
If someone smacks you upside the head in a bar, you are likely to get angry and get into a fight. But what about when you are holding a baby and he/she steps on your balls with those cast iron baby shoes. AND IT HURTS. Do you get angry and throw the kid across the room ? No.
So if you can control yourself then, why not any other time ?
And stress is a form of anger, it is just not directed.
You want stress go into business for yourself. Deal with the taxman, government regulations and all that. When profits are down you make payroll out of your own pocket.
That is why they say "Don't buy yourself a job". So you make a hundred grand a year, but if you have to work ninety hours a week to get it, that is not success. Success is when it runs itself. Get a good general manager who you can trust and just collect your money. Then you can do it again, and again, thus multiplying your income without working much at all. I wish I was up to the task, but it seems like you might be.
Time is irreplaceable. Now you quit, you got time. Time to contemplate and plan and plot. Use it wisely before your money runs out. I wish I could, but I lack a few things needed to make things happen.
Don't laugh. Try it, your a smart guy. It should be easy.
You've had enough time off. lets get on the stick & become a productive member off society again. Now the time.
check this out brother...
First off I'm not your brother & second I don't need to listen that drivel.
Either your going to get off your ass & while you are getting unemployment, figure to out. your getting help & now its up to you to do something.
That or whine.
ok, I am not going to get my Cadillac in the garage by sitting on my ass.
are you a painter as a job? construction or contractor related trade job?
just wondering from your handle.
OK, I'll tell a funny story. About 18 year ago I was doing a repaint of the interior of a residence.
One afternoon I was painting their 8 year old daughters bedroom & she comes into the room to watch me. So she's sitting on the bed jabbering to me & then asks "do you like painting?"
I turn around & say "not really" & she says "so why do you do it" & I say "because I'm not smart enough to do anything else, so do good in school or you could end up being a painter".
She went to school the next day & told the teacher what I told her.
I still know the family & she remembers my advice to this day.
"She went to school the next day & told the teacher what I told her."
There is no shame in honest work. I don't care if you suck shit out of sewers. I wish I could get a real job, but my skills are outdated and my eyesight just about gone.
Painting is one thing you can do well or shitty. If you can keep getting work you are probably doing alright at least.
I was gifted with a range of talents. Electronics and most aspects of house remodeling. To say the least I could find work. On my own in fact, I have not filled out a job application since the 1980s. I did at a place called Electrasound and beat out 154 applicants. They had a comprehensive test and I rewrote it. Well actually just pointed out an error.
In remodeling, I could do everything but the roof and the cement work. I made some money at that for a while. I used to have a saying "Hell no I don't want to do it right, but I don't want to come back and do it again". I almost started a company doing electrical work, I was going to call it "Overkill Electric" but then I thought twice and figured that is not quite the right name. But I have wired quite a few houses and the work always passed inspection. In fact in spades. I was taught by real experts at it.
But not everyone gets the same exposure. What I got, I got from a family of people with many skills. That is rare. It did make me some money, but I can't even read a tape measure these days. My PC has an extra big screen just so I can correspond. I could never deal with one of those smart phones.
I would like to have a job, any job. But I can't even run a cash register.
If you paint, then that's what you do. Do it.
If you are doing good work there is no shame in that.
I don't think there are medical "excuses" to quit your job and go on unemployment. Unless a medical professional recommended that you quit your job, I don't think that you can legally receive unemployment.
And yes, I know it's chump change which is why I never bothered.
that was only option, after a few months I am getting better.
I stopped throwing up every morning, and my blood pressure went down from catastrophic levels.
it is chump change, glad you found something so quick in the situations you found yourself in.
now after talking to ex coworkers, seems company is going into the shitter, glad I left, as they have no way to boost morale at all there. just all about the cheese it was there. last company I left took a few years and they were out of business, saw the writing on the wall at that time, and have been seeing it with the other one a few years back.
Easy Brother. I'll move your ass here before you go down drain.
