I'm pretty sure i have this;
-Boredom with working
-Finding work mentally too taxing or challenging
-Discomfort with the setting of a workplace or the interaction with others at work
-Difficulty following a set of rules typical to work, such as behavioral and performance guidelines or a dress code
-Discomfort being judged by others for the quality of one's work
-Feeling shame being seen by others performing various types of work
-Dislike of taking orders from others (also known as "Hierarchy Aversion")
-Dislike of the confinement to a schedule of fixed hours
-Refusal to give up an activity in favor of work to which patient is addicted or otherwise attached
-Loss of free time
I have all of those 'symptoms' but this is not a recognized disorder. But i cant count how many times ive seriously considered committing suicide because a life of work depresses me so much. Working your days away in some pointless job just seems like a total and utter waste of life to me. I feel human beings were not meant to spend 8 hours (or more) a day in an office/factory whatever with other human beings that they despise and thus be forced to neglect the human beings they actually enjoy being around such as your husband/wife and children. I refuse to accept this is the way it is supposed to be.
Most people would say im just lazy but i go to the gym 3 times a week, i walk my dog 2-3 times a day, i have hobbies that i practice on a regular basis, i do chores around the house, so surely im not lazy? I can honestly see why bums just sit around on park benches getting drunk all day and not giving a damn about having a job. I can also see the appeal of being a criminal, and why they would rather risk going to prison than go to work.
Does anyone else have this 'disorder'?
