I would deff say you are burned out! Can you take a break from things and just relax? or maybe just go home from work and take a nap?

I can totally understand the pressure you are under!!! 

I think focus on doing the bare minimum that you need to with everything so that you can get through the wedding.  Honestly, it really does get better afterwards.

I hate my job too…same job in same place with a lot of the same people for 5 years.  I was passed over for a promotion and the person who is now my supervisor SUCKS, and it’s not just me, all my co-workers hate her.  I’m burnt out from the wedding planning, and now that it’s crunch time and I need to pull the details together, I could not care less.  UGH.

My ray of sunshine is that Saturday is my bridal shower and I am super excited for that!

@Goldilocks1107: I’m really sorry to hear that you’re having a tough time. I think I was right about at the same mark with my wedding. I was married in September too, and it was the middle of July when I felt like the weight of the world was on my shoulders.

You have a lot going on, but hang in there! Soon enough, you’ll be able to relax on your honeymoon! By far the best vacation you’ll ever have!

As for my methods of relaxation…running! It’s such a release for me. I do a lot of thinking when I run, but it’s also a great way to help get those thoughts out and clear my mind. Any chance you can sneak away for a quick massage after work before your wedding? That’s another thing that might be able to help you. Or…get your nails done! I find that pampering myself also helps to relieve a little stress.

Aww I totally hear ya! I LOVE my job but I do not like the people here. I do a really good job, have the full support of our board and management team but the people on the same level as me (who are older by 20 years) seem to want to make my life HELL.

I recently went through a horrible time where they were making me depressed and I finally spoke out to my direct supervisor and we came up with some ways to combat it and things have been a lot better since.

I think you need to try and take whatever days you can to try and relax, and little things, like actually leaving the office and going for a walk on your lunch break can really help. Try to leave on time and get back to the gym because that also really helps.

good luck!
