    I'm absolutely torn. Do I go for this interview with Apple after recently getting a job that makes me so miserable?

    Yes. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain if you're in a job that makes you miserable.

    Not well at all. Saw doctor yesterday since I was sent home from work again and told to go and see them as soon as I could. They reckon I have some sort of infection. Might have to cancel my appointment for Friday because of work. My mental health is going down hill again, spent most of last night crying wondering why I'm such a pathetic mess. Guess that it's going to take even longer to get this show on the road. :sigh:

    I currently work in a gambling establishment and my dad is very good friends with the manager, he essentially helped me get the job even though I really didn't want it. It doesn't challenge me enough, the hours are horrible for someone trying to make some sort of social life as its always late night and I'm not exactly someone who goes out late afterwards. And worst of all the people. Theres so many drunks, druggies, homeless and just general horrible people.*

    Am I wrong for leaving even if my dad is good friends with the manager? *

    If it makes you unhappy then hopefully both your dad and manager will understand. Even if they don't it's not wrong at all to want and make changes to be happy, especially for mental health purposes.

    My dad has never really understood my mental health.

    * I feel with the apple job looking at reviews of it and the kind of people they hire, I have a higher chance of making friends and having more sociable hours and doing something I enjoy. Do you think I'm wrong for thinking that? :sad:*

    Thank you. I told one of my co-workers who I have managed to become friends with and he told me the exact same thing that if it was him he would go for it or he would regret it.

    I just feel awful cause I feel pressure from my dad being friends with my boss.*

    Don't feel bad. It was nice of your dad's friend to give you this opportunity but no reasonable person would expect you to stay in one job forever, just out of loyalty :nah:

    Even if i've been there for 2 months? My dad says its just because you're new but it isn't I don't think. The work just isn't for me and I've basically learnt everything in a month and a half.*

    I really feel thankful he gave me the chance for a job but if it makes me unhappy I don't think I can keep going with it. *

    I understand why you feel so anxious but you're overthinking it. You're a bright and ambitious person and you want a better, more fulfilling job. Some people will call you and I snobs for that, but I honestly don't think there's anything wrong with being ambitious and having high(er) standards :nah:

    Yeah I've decided I'm going to go for it. If I don't I'll regret it i think. I'm not giving up the job unless I know that I have it lined up.
