If you are having problems because of a bad sleeping schedule it's not a bad idea to pull an all nighter one night and go to bed at a normal time the following day. Don't do it too often because not sleeping is unhealthy though.

I never thought I'd be posting here because I have enough pride to choke a camel. But I'm being bullied at work. I'm a file clerk, and I really like the place that I work at. I've always helped out my co-workers and had time to get my own work done, but one of my co-workers is steadily growing more belligerent. I've had to double my hours just to scrape by with the work she has passed down on to me, and no one else working there has been very pleased with my recent work performance, including my bully for some reason.

Flashing back to the bully thread, I really don't think fighting my bully is an option here because she is a fourty year old woman in a wheelchair. But she has totally been dumping on me for the last couple months, and gets to leave work early and not put in weekends while I have to stay late and find extra days to come in just to keep my job. And I have to call in tomorrow to see if she'll give me my informal extra day off so I can finish my midterm paper. She's got me by the whatnots and I'm not too happy with the situation.

Is there any way that I can make her go back to doing her own damn work and still keep my job?

^ Report to your boss. She's just your co-worker. You won't get fired - unless she's your boss' favorite.

^^ There is also a decent chance that she's doing it because you won't say no. Being the guy that always helped she probably subconsciously singled you out as someone who she could push around a bit. It may be a better idea to talk to her in a polite manner about the situation and see if she backs off rather than going over her head first. This also shows maturity and a willingness to resolve any work related problems without running to the powers that be.

^ this is telling me that i was way too drastic about my advice. Oh yeah, follow him Gopher.

Posting it here made me ease up a bit. I think I'm gonna talk to the second lowest person on the totem pole who has been there twice as long as I have. There might be more to the situation than I know.

We are moving locations in two weeks, and if things are still bad once we've settled into the new place, I'll set my limits with her on how much of my time I can offer. I have always made it very clear that I am a student first, and I am fierce when cornered!

Well this is also a tough problem because unlike most people kicking her in the shins won't slow her down if she chases after you. She's like a mechanized hybrid of a human capable or incredible feats. Have you ever seen those guys and gals play wheelchair basketball? They are freaking incredible. I'd be afraid if I was you.

Naw, man. It's an electric wheelchair. Like TIMMAY!!! Only she isn't retarded. She's just.. bleeding me dry. I just have one more year left in school after this one and I am out of the cubicle world FOREVER! (I hope, I hope so bad...) It's like Joe Versus the Volcano... flourescent lights suck the life out of you.

Have you considered unplugging her battery then? I know what you mean about office work though. I had a co-op at a newspaper and my little cubicle drove me absolutely insane.

Yup, talk to her and tell her you'll talk to the supervisor/manager that she might have problems handling her own workload therefore needs a bit of help. Maybe she didn't realise (I'm willing to bet she is aware of what she's been doing), so she might feel mortified enough to pull her own weight and if she's decent, apologise.

There's a chance she'll pull the disability card. If she was stupid enough to try, make a friendly offer to go with her to the supervisor/manager to get her help. If you do this, she'll get the message she can't guilt-trip you into putting up with her laziness any longer.
