    Hey everyone! After a long fight with depression I finally found a job that I love doing, a few months ago I fell into a really bad slump of depression where I didn't want to do anything, and I mean anything. Basically all I wanted to do was sleep and it really worried not only myself but my Fiancée as well. After many fights and disagreements we were able to determine it was my job that was the focal point of the depression, I was working 60 hours a week to be promoted and it was wearing me down. I began to find myself in my kitchen every night cooking to just enjoy life again. My fiancee sat me down to talk about possibly leaving my job and working at a restaurant again and seeing if I wanted to even go to culinary school down the road.. I can honestly say it was the greatest decision ever. No I'm not making close to what I was making but I'm a lot happier in life and I think that is the most important part.
