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

Doesn't sound like your job is anything to do with it in all honesty, if all you want to do is stay in bed that sounds more like you are potentially suffering with depression. I think a trip to see the dr may be needed...

How long have you been back? Took me a while to get my head round going back to work but once I was in a routine and DC more self-sufficient I genuinely started to feel like I had the best of both worlds. And my job's rubbish!
