Job Misery Is a Slow, Steady Killer

Consequences of job misery are weight gain, weakened immune system, loss of sleep, ruined relationships, increased aging and on and on.

George Carlin once said, "Oh, you hate your job? Why didn't you say so? There's a support group for that. It's called everybody, and they meet at the bar."

All Carlinisms aside, job misery is a leading cause of death. That has been studied and reported in Europe over and over. Consequences are weight gain, weakened immune system, loss of sleep, ruined relationships, increased aging and on and on.

If you truly dislike you job, you either need to move on or figure out a way to tolerate it. You owe that to yourself, and your family and friends.
