Well, I've done some things over the past year to reduce the amount of stress in my life. I know that working in this kind of job makes that very difficult...but I did what I could.
First off was getting through the surgery. I had my surgery last June 14 and have had great success. I've lost a total of 181 pounds so far
Another thing that I did was to step down as a Comm. Supervisor and go back to being a line level dispatcher. I finally realized that maybe being a supervisor wasn't for me. I think it was the right move for my dept. and I know it was the right move for me.
I disabled my password on my work email so that I can not check it at home
It's amazing how many times I would check my work email at home...not any more
I took a vacation and went up to Punxsutawney, PA for Groundhogs Day. That's the first real vacation I've taken for a while, and I spent the whole week NOT thinking about work and getting some much needed rest
