    The job is ok, I mean it can get a bit dull, however I feel sad sometimes ever since I finished uni and started working. I mean I understand the job and there is not much to learn as of yet just bits and bobs as you go along.

    But sometimes I feel so isolated and sad like there is nothing going on in my life, just boredom then work, I sometimes do nights which is worse because I do nothing during the day and then go to work.

    I still socialise with my friends but still. I get this horrible feeling before I go to work. I work in a call centre.

    What is this feeling ? How can I overcome it ?

    It's okay. Plan things that you'll be able to look forward to

    Feeling sad isn't really a mental health problem. It has to get much worse to be considered depression. From what you have said it just sounds like you feel like everyone else who has a rubbish job. I know I felt like that when I did rubbish jobs that bored me to death (unsurprisingly one of them was also working in a call centre which I hated).

    Im not saying it is a mental health problem it was the only sub forum that seemed relevant. I know where your coming from but its horrible, I wouldnt have thought working a crap job would have this impact.

    Unfortunately it does. Just try and get through the day (or night) and make sure you enjoy your free time. The worst job I ever had wasn't because of the work itself (that was easy I basically spent all day reading books or newspapers) but because I didn't get on with any of the people who worked there. Its amazing what getting on with people does for your sense of wellness.

    If you really hate your job keep working there but in your free time take the time to look for another job. I did temporary work for a year and it was great I basically got a new job every month so I never got really bored with one particular job and if I did I knew I could change it any time that I wanted.
