39 year old, recently diagnosed. I have been a sterile processor for surgical equipment for about two years now, and have hit a creative wall. At first I was super excited to enter a new field in a fast paced environment, with much to learn and a lot of multitasking. Now, after having pretty much mastered my job and everything started going smoothly, extreme boredom set in and I just started making interpersonal problems in the department. A few impulsive comments and one long open air gripe, have pretty much made me a social outcast in a matter of a week. The atmosphere is extremely tense when I am around, but has created a new dynamic for my brain to work with and stay stimulated by. It won’t last though, and who knows when I’ll be looking for new work. In retrospect, this pattern has plagued me my whole sordid employment history.
