What do you do for a living?

Does anyone here work? I work as an administrator in the NHS (National Health Service). I’ve always worked in the public sector mainly the NHS. I work through an agency though so it’s a contract. The pay is good, about £10.43 an hour, so I’ve decided to stick it out until they chuck me out. It’s an extremely easy going job, stress free too so I do not mind it but boy is it mind numbingly boring and repetitive lol

I’m a gardener for the parks department. I go from place to place and do parks maintenance as well as take care of the plants, prune trees, plant trees, work at the City Rose garden or the Cherry Blossom patch. It’s a new onsite location almost everyday.

I was into welding and construction until my back finally gave out. I worked myself too hard on top of having a pre-existing disc problem. I’m on SSDI now. My first job was stocking shelves at a supermarket and that was the only job I was really capable of doing, the rest of it was a disaster. I have a feeling that if I were on an antidepressant I would be functioning well enough to do a simple job like that again, but then I’d have mania to deal with. I’d like to get functioning well enough to get a part time job across the street at walmart.
