Lost a job, got a new one.
« on: November 02, 2016, 08:17:53 AM »
Hello guys, long time no see. Well i lost my job at techsys corporation. They decided to move to another state and i wasn't interested in moving. So i got this new job at a company called Sanmina, they're a large world wide company and I'm basically currently being trained to repair their hand held scanners.  It doesn't pay that great, not compared to my last job and it's only a casual job with FT hrs. So the money would be a lot less if i went full-time.
i haven't slept in 2 days from first day jitters. I have work in 3 hours and haven't slept a wink.
Their training isn't exactly easy to follow, they basically sat me down with a guy who did everything and i just watched for a good 4 - 5 hrs then was pretty much told to start doing it myself.  I'm able to ask questions but I'm feeling a lot of anxiety about this job. I've gone from knowing everything about my job to knowing nothing. I hate that feeling.

any of you guys gone through this? i seem to freak out a lot with new jobs. I have no idea why, having full sleep would be far more beneficial to my health and learning speed. It's almost making me want to quit this job before I've even started it.

glad to hear from you.  just for curiosity, how much is the pays from the older job to the newer job?

since 6th grade, because of an injury from the left side of my head, i suffer from social anxiety disorder and other problems too.  that is one of the biggest reasons why i don't go to work.  my anxiety disorder makes me nervous around people.  that is another reason why i don't have any real-life friends.

i didn't know i have s.a.d. (social anxiety disorder) until early 2013 is when i realized that.  before that, i thought i was shy around people but it took around 16 to 17 years later to realized i have s.a.d.

in summer of 2001, i did work as a custodian aide for a little over 2 months.  i got stressed out from work mostly from my first boss who is mean and lazy.  i worked for her for about a month and a half before i switched boss from a different school.  this new boss is a hard worker, not lazy, and a lot nicer when he tell us what to clean in this new school.  i was a lot less stressed out from my 2nd boss, i worked for him for only 3 weeks before summer is over and i have to go back to high school again.

so you can say that is my first and last job that i ever work.  since then, i haven't work because of head injury that gives s.a.d., paranoia, lost sense of direction (like a broken compass), retardation, and i get stress out easily.  i also get irritated and agitated easily from the head injury.  it makes me become crazy and abusive that eventually led me to juvenile hall in 2000.  luckily, nearly 3 years later, i got a surgery to remove the scar on my head and the blood and oxygen can flow easily that i no longer get irritated or agitated easily.  i no longer becoming abusive except for one time i beat up my mom in august 2003 but that wasn't because of the scar on the left side of my head but from a hot shower that gives me hot head.  that was probably the last time i become abusive to anybody, i do feel bad and guilty about it though.

i used to be kind of angry that i wasn't able to work or go to school and don't have any friends to past time in this past 14 years of my life.  but this past week or so, i appreciate the free time that i have.  sure, i can't work or go to school, and am a loner, but at least i don't have to worry about school or work or get stress out from it.  i also don't have to take responsibility say from work either.  it not until this past week or so, i realized that because i don't work i don't get stress out and appreciate the free time in my hand.  at least there is a pro out of a bunch of cons that i have. :)

hopefully, you are able to sleep and get a full rest to recover from the 2 days of no sleep.  you seems pretty smart, you made me learned something new recently about volts time amps equal watts.  and you taught me that hertz means things that happen in a second.  i never knew that and you taught me.  so, i think you understand electric and electronics way more than i do.  so hope all is well for you.

Damn dude. Sorry to hear about your loss of your job. Were you this nervous when you started your last job? I'm kinda taking away from this that you aren't too crazy about this new job and the training are getting the better of you, causing a great deal of stress which is what's fucking with your sleep schedule. I think your subconscious could telling you that this probably isn't the place to be. Though I don't know what your financial situation is if you could just quit your job. I personally never leave a job unless I have something else lined up. I feel that no one should feel undue stress because of their job. And their training is absolute horse shit. You don't train employees by saying 'here's what I do' and then expect them to do it. People learn through hands on training. My dad does the same thing when "teaching" me mechanics then gets frustrated when I don't know what I'm doing, lol.
 
You aren't alone in feeling nervous though about starting a new job. We all get those little jitters. I lost a little sleep on my last two jobs from being nervous about meeting expectations. When I worked at the photo studio, it was a lot of hands on training but it was a lot to take in from learning how to pose people to learning different shots and all that jazz. My job now, I had to learn a lot of expertise with my particular job, which I had no office experience so it was a steep learning curve from going from a studio artistic setting to a corporate one. I lost a little sleep yes. But I love the company I work for and the people I work with so it all worked out in the end to the point I'm now comfortable with buying a house (which is the reason I too haven't been around much here).

Only you can evaluate your situation and make the best decision for you.

thought i'd update you guys with the latest, i'm still at the same job. Pretty much on the same money i was on at the last job now. People are awesome and i've made a lot of new mates there. Heaps of them are gamers too.  I repair 6 different units now and will be trained as a product lead soon. Although i don't really want to stay at this job as it is quite boring and i tend to watch youtube vids all day while working.

Life is good atm so can't complain.  I tend to wonder here every now and then but this place seems to be pretty dead. I don't frequent forums generally at all anymore.  Such is life.

Hows things anyway?

hello soulgrind, glad to hear that you are doing good.  glad to hear that people you are working with are awesome and you made a lot of new friends there.  i can understand on the watching youtube too much part which can be very boring.  i fractured my left palm below the thumb 4 months ago and it still doesn't heal up 100% yet.  the first 70 days when i fractured my left thumb, i didn't know it was fractured.  the first couple of weeks i kind of suspect it but disregard it and so i used my left thumb normally like washing dishes almost everyday and the ache doesn't go away.

i even washed and cleaned the refrigerator on March 3, and the containers are heavy as i poured water in it as i washed them.  i even rubbed eucalyptus oil on my left thumb and below it for 10 days straight of the last 70 days and the ache doesn't go away.  So that is when i was convinced and believed that the palm below my left thumb is fractured.  so i stopped washing dishes and tried not to use my left thumb as much as possible to let it heal up 100%.

43 days as i let it heals up, i moved my left thumb again and i was hoping it was healed up 100% by then but after a couple days later, the ache came back.  in those 2 days, i wash dishes normally and even played on the monkey bars, a zipline, practice martial arts like tae-kwon-do, and worked out in the park where there are workout equipments there and then the ache below my left thumb came back.  it made me regret moving and using my left thumb after 43 days later when i let it heal.  So obviously, 43 days of healing isn't enough.

in 12 days of the 43 days that i let it healed, i even went to a family doctor to let him permitted me to get x-ray on my left palm.  i was supposed to see him 8 days later because his clients are packed in those days and i couldn't see him sooner but on the 13th day which is 12 days later that i let my palm healed, i called my doctor and my mom talked on the phone for me and the receptionist said if i wanted to go see a doctor soon, i can come in today and wait till the doctor is done with his other clients.  i don't mind waiting so my mom drove me to see a doctor and i waited for about 2 hours before i get called into the clinic's room.  the doctor checked my left thumb and below it and when he first touched it gracefully, it doesn't hurt but like a couple minutes later it ached.  so it took like a couple minutes for it to ache.  before the ach started coming back, he said he could permit me to get it x-ray if i wanted too and i nodded and said yes.

so my mom took me to this hospital and get my left palm x-ray.  she took 3 x-rays of my left palm and that time i didn't think much of it but some minutes later after i got x-rays and my mom took me home on the way, i find that the way she took my x-rays is weird.   the first 2 x-rays she took was on the back of my palm with one shot with my fingers together and the 2nd shot with my fingers slightly apart.  the injuried was on the front of my palm, not the back so why did she took only the back side of my palm only.  i remembered asking her that time if i need to put the front of my palm up and she said the x-ray goes through it so no need.  and the 3rd x-ray she took of my left palm,  she told me to move my left palm to the side and twist it so my left palm face up but in a weird position.  at least it face up so hopefully x-ray can see it better.

Anyway, 8 days later, i received a call saying the doctor checked the x-ray pictures and said he couldn't find anything wrong with my hand or left thumb or below it or something like it.  and the receptionist also suggested that if i wanted more test, i can go see a specialist.  i don't want to see a specialist after i took 3 x-rays and they said nothing is wrong with my thumb.  i have a feeling they are going to say its normal even if i go see a specialist about it.  another weird thing is the doctor didn't check on the box of the permitted paper for my x-ray - that he didn't checked the box that said a copy of the x-ray to the CD for the patience.  if he had checked that, then i would receive a copy of it and i can view it on a computer.  but he didn't.

so after a total of 43 days later i let my left thumb heal, i was hoping it all healed up but it didn't heal up 100% and i was disappointed in myself for using my left thumb still kind of early but i didn't know so i shouldn't be too hard on myself.  in these 4 months because of the ache below my left thumb, i couldn't practice much tae-kwon-do and other martial arts, i couldn't play much on the monkey bars or zipline, especially when i found out i cracked my bone below my left thumb, i didn't dare do those fun stuffs at the park.  even at home, i couldn't play videogames because of it.  there are moments i fall into depressions because of it.  i wasted 4 precious months of my life unabe to do those fun stuffs.  especially practicing tae-kwon-do and other martial arts mostly because i am kind of old, but not too old.  i am 34 years old now but not as old as 40 years old or older, so that mean i wasted those 4 precious months and still counting of little and limited practice of martial arts.  i am afraid by the time i reach 40 years old, i worry that i might not be able to improve on my tae-kwon-do and other martial arts because i worry at that age and later is a bit too old to get any improvement on these martial arts.

during those 4 months, my family and other probably didn't believe that i fractured my palm below my left thumb and i struggled to prove to them but i explained to them in very good detail that i am not pretending that the bone below my left thumb is fractured because it doesn't benefit me much at all because it only wasted my precious time of not being able to practice tae-kwon-do and other martial arts fully.  sure i don't have to wash dishes if my palm is fractured but i rather wash dishes if it heal up 100% or not fractured just so i have something to do to past time and it makes me feel good after i finish washing dishes to see the sink is neat and tidy.  not only that but i couldn't play videogames either to past time so it doesn't really benefit me if i pretend which proof that i didn't pretend.

sorry for my long story but i have to let it out to proof my innocence.  i am not sure how long it will take for it to heal up 100% but i worry i have to restart it again worry that it might take another 2 months of healing for it to heal up 100%.  during the healing process, i could feel my left palm heal up as i could feel a cool liquid traveling inside it as it in the process of mending it.  then there are time it felt like a soothing warm liquid healing inside.  maybe when i no longer felt the liquid inside healing up, it might means its 100% heal up.  but i might not move it for like another 5 days just to be sure.  i worry i have to redo this again and it might take 2 months for it to heal up and i will give it another 5 days just to be sure.  but hopefully it won't take 2 months but hopefully in just another couple of weeks or so.  but i will see.

Things are pretty good. I too can't complain. Been really busy lately so it's tough for me to come on here except maybe once or twice a week on the weekends to help keep up with maintenance (though Kurt beats me too it, lol). Still at the same job at a party retailer in the corporate office. The cat is much bigger now but she's just as crazy as ever. Spring just sprung here in the States so when I can I try to do outside stuff. Like today I put new shocks on my Jeep and it rides much smoother. You'd never guess there is close to 174k miles on this thing! If the weather is nice next weekend, I'm going to try to build a headboard for my bed and get some more woodworking done this summer. I got lots of furniture I need to build this year before winter :) I really need to make it a point to post my projects on here. I've done a lot of things in the last year I'm proud of but I tend to throw them up on Facebook and Instagram. I need to start sharing those things with you guys.

The other thing I got into recently is home brewing. I'm loving it and have gotten a couple batches done already. I'm getting some new brewing equipment soon so I'll be doing bigger batches.

Yeah. Place is pretty dead but not any deader than it's been in the last few years, lol. We get a new member wander in once in a while either from referrals from other sites or through Tapatalk. Either way, no matter to me. It's a place for old e-friends to keep in touch. Plus, this place costs next to nothing to run and my credit card gets charged monthly automatically so it'll be up for the foreseeable future :D I barely notice the charges, lol. I was working on some things to spruce up this place but life took a turn, adulting happened and video games fell by the wayside. I have other priorities that have pulled my attention. I may do something with the PS5 but not sure yet.
