I'm 15 at the moment, turning 16 soon. I've just started working at this fast food place, but I feel as if it's taking a toll on my mental health, I constantly come home aching just from 4-5 hours of work, and then when i go to school the next day- Man. It's pure pain, this week- i had 3 shifts in a row, along with school, which you could imagine- wasn't a walk in the park either. And as for why I think its degrading my mental health? Well, I understand I am new to all of this work stuff- but to be honest? The rush and the pure pressure of the job just stresses me out to the point of just wanting my head to explode. And as I was going through my last shift. I realised that when I finally get my own house, it'll most likely be twice as worse- all of the anxiety and stressing out. And to add to this mess, my mother doesn't think there's anything wrong at all, she tells me all the time- 'there's nothing wrong, you dont have stress or anger issues.' My moods are up and down all of the time, but a lot of people I have talked to agree with me, which is made up of both my older friends, and the counsellors at my school. I just feel like I don't know a lot about myself and I hate not knowing. I just- im tired of crying, that's all I've been doing ever since work, just crying. Man, sorry if I just sound like a dumb hormonal teen, because I know other people have been through way worse, and I am most likely over reacting. And I'll say it again, I'm sorry.
