Title thread says it all really.

I'm a teacher and I hate it. I used to really love it. I've had a baby and now I've gone back to work I really don't enjoy it. It's not like I want to be at home with baby either I just don't want to do my job.

DH said only really lucky people enjoy their jobs and I should be lucky that I have a job at all.

I'm well paid and only have to work 3 days

I know I just have to suck it up and do it. I don't know what I'd rather do. Feel a bit depressed I think at the moment, lack energy and motivation.

I feel like I'm letting the kids, the school and myself down. I'd rather spend the day in bed

If you used to love your job, then the chance is that you can love it again, but you're sounding really down.

Have you started to feel like this just since you went back to work, or has it been going for a while?

Just since going back. I've had the day off work today (been ill) and now dread going back to work sad

How long have you hated it?
Do you think you may be depressed?
How do you feel on the other days of the week.
