I've worked in customer service as long as I can remember. I absolutely hate it. However, I do my job well and my bosses and co-workers all think I love my job. The stress of hating my job so much is eating at me. I try to focus on the positive's though, to keep me sane: good pay, full medical/dental benefits, paid vacation (amazing things, yes I am grateful) and best of all: I think my job is good for my insulin sensitivity, because it is standing and moving around the office all day.
Recently, I've been offered a promotion to a position that would be in the back-of-house: ZERO customer service (yay!) all computer work and stuff I love to do. I am so miserable at my current job that the stress is making me depressed. It's really, really bad.
I want to accept because it will make me so much happier to not deal with customers, but I'm so nervous about the sitting all day! I don't mind sitting, I'm just worried it will ruin my insulin sensitivity or make me gain weight!
Can anyone tell me if they have made a switch like that and how it affected their diabetes control or if it even made a big difference or if you have any suggestions on how I could counteract it?
For info: I don't work out with any type of consistency... I hike occasionally on wknds and that's about it... I have a gym pass, but go sporadically... I could definitely make working out a priority if I wasn't so depressed when I got home from all the annoying customers...
