I don't know where to really put this but it kind of applies here because I can't stop thinking what a terrible no good decision I made.

I had the opportunity to see my new office before I accepted this position and I didn't even think about it, I was so blinded by the prospect of working three miles from home. I should have looked though. I should have looked and seen that this office is 12 x 24 and has two other people sitting in it, one of whom is a loud talker (and loud breather, if we're going there). If I had seen this, I would have told the guy to not even bother calling me, the answer is no. But I didn't. So now I'm here. The loud talker is out of the office working from home three days a week but when he's in the office he has three to four hours of meetings on the phone each day and I feel like I'm going to end him at some point.

The worst part is that my wife and son both love the fact that I'm here. My wife can see me for lunch and my son likes that I'm home sooner. So I guess that's a good thing? I think about doing five years here (my son has 8th-12th grade still yet) and I can't even fathom it. Five years where I sit and wonder if LB is going to get a new job? I feel like I've shot myself not in the foot here but in a major organ and I'm losing blood.

I'm at 15 years working towards retirement so it's not like I can just up and leave either. I don't know what kind of mental trick I need to do to make my brain stop thinking like this and instead focus on something else. I'm barely sleeping, barely eating...I finally found a shrink that I hope can prescribe something because I am so tired of this.

Don't stay in a job you hate, bune.

That's death.

This is awful. Do you have misophonia?

Yea. Im assuming, maybe incorrectly, that you had other options before grabbing this job. Its never too early to back out and you can always reach out to others again. You already seem to be struggling with some depression as it were and staying at a place like this you absolutely despise.....nope.

I mean, I could leave but like I said I'm at 15 years and (as a Fed) I only have to go 5 more to hit retirement eligibility. (I did the research and even though I couldn't start drawing retirement, I could 'retire' and save my place in line. Get a job outside of the Federal service, maybe at the state or city level. I could - theoretically - do another 20 there and retire twice.

It's not the job per se, but lots of little things around the job. Death by a thousand cuts, as it were.

Yes, but I'm pretty sure that even Mother Teresa would want to shank this guy. It's not normal office noises at all, and it sounds like he's got sleep apnea but he's awake.

I did have an option, but that option was "nothing". I was in my last position for a little over four years and I was passed over for a promotion already so I figured "what's the worst that could happen?" :shake:

I have talked to a few people at my old job because I know there are a lot of retirements coming up. I've also looked around here for other Federal positions and there are a few, I just need to apply for them.

Being away from my family on that two-week detail really applied a x10 multiplier to how depressed I was. I've been away before but this just couldn't have come at a worse time; I was getting less than four hours of sleep a night.

My boss is out today but it is something that I want to talk to him about. I understand that space is at a premium - literally every office except for management has more than one person in it - but they should stop hiring people at this point. And I know that there are at least four more people being hired in the near future and potentially four more in the slightly less near future so where the hell are they going to put these people? I wish I knew the status of the lease here because I know we don't own the building so it's gotta have an expiration date.
