70-Year-Old Man, 'Tougher Than a Box of Concrete,' Wins 620-Mile Horse Race in Mongolia

70-Year-Old Man, 'Tougher Than a Box of Concrete,' Wins 620-Mile Horse Race in Mongolia Bob Long of Idaho said he was inspired to enter the Mongol Derby after watching a documentary about the event. “It took me about 15 minutes to decide that I could do that,” he said. To prepare, he spent several months training with previous Mongol Derby winners—riding different horses for long stretches of time, and practicing quick changes and transitions. He credits that training with giving him an edge over his competition. “Preparation trumps youth,” he told the Times. As a prize, Long received a horse, although he isn’t sure how to transport it from Mongolia back to the States.

“In western Mongolia there are no trees at all. It' s completely barren, almost like the moon, and you can see for miles. As a culture, Mongolians are incredibly close with the animals around them—they're part of their survival. This photograph was taken on the way to Dalaikhan' s winter camp in the Altai

Take a spectacular journey into the wilds of Mongolia in search of a dying tradition - the golden eagle hunters .

At first, you may have dismissed any negative thoughts you had about your job. After all, it’s called “work” for a reason. Nobody loves their job 100% of the time, right?

But as the months (or years) went on, you might have noticed yourself start changing. Maybe you found yourself sadly crawling into bed on Sunday nights feeling depressed about the week to come. Maybe you noticed the second you walked into work you were instantly gripped by anxiety that never seemed to fade. Or maybe you found yourself escaping to the bathroom to cry in private because you felt so overwhelmed.

2. You’re Feeling More Anxiety Than Ever

“I started getting major anxiety and my dream job that I absolutely loved quickly became a battlefield. I had to put up my walls and felt like I was constantly walking on eggshells.” — Alana C.

“I’d have meltdowns after work almost daily toward the end. I would bottle all the stress, then come home and yell and swear and punch my own legs. After a couple of weeks, it got even worse and I had full panic attacks thinking about going in. That was the last straw. I saw the doctor, got a note and left. In the month since I’ve been doing much better emotionally.” — Jace P.

3. You Feel Angry All the Time

“I was angry all the time. I would come home and just be in a complete state of anxiety and anger. I couldn’t function. The drama at work was more than my mental health could handle. And when I was always the one getting talked to for issues that were not my fault (negativity in the office), I started to lose it. Finally switched to a different office and have started to realize just how toxic my last job was. I knew it was in the back of my mind, but it took leaving to see just how bad it was.” — Tahany E.

“Staying awake all night antsy, losing hair in huge clumps, being physically in pain all the time, crying a lot and being irritated by everything.” — Megan H.

4. You Cry at Work (Usually in the Bathroom)

“As a prior receptionist, I noticed the red flag of me needing to step away from my desk more and more, just to cry, and get back to work. Even more so, when I went home to cry and forcing myself to go in, when I’d rather stay home.” — Tatauq M.

“I was having to constantly go hide in the bathroom to get away or cry and dreaded going to work every day. I would want to cry while getting ready for work because I already knew I was going to be miserable.” — Natalie V.

“When I started to cry at work over everything. That job took such a toll on me I was starting to get some terrible thoughts. So I found a different job and quit.” — Vanessa S.

5. Your Physical Health Is Declining

“Had a heart attack at work. Pretty much says it all.” — Rox P.

“Woke up every morning with pain in my abdomen. Stress was causing stomach ulcers.” — Dayhlaina L.

6. You No Longer Feel Safe at Work

“I worked in a call center and we got a terroristic threat call to one of our seminars. The company did nothing but brush it under the rug for the employees involved even after the police were called to the caller’s home. We still had to deal with him and help him and I was the one assigned to do it because of my high level of customer service experience. I refused. After that day I had panic attacks every morning on my way to work and then again when I got there. Ultimately it made me leave and I still get flashbacks and panic attacks when a phone rings.” — Katelyn B.

The Secret Recipe Behind Costco’s Chicken Bakes—Revealed

  The Secret Recipe Behind Costco’s Chicken Bakes—Revealed They’re one of the reasons Costco is your favorite store. Now, you can make them in your own kitchen, thanks to one former employee who spilled the beans. And we’re not judging you. The menu items may be your typical concession stand grub—hot dogs, pizza, sausages—but for some reason, they’re way tastier probably should be. Hot food sold at a big box store automatically lends itself to pretty low expectations, so anything edible with a bit of flavor would satisfy hungry shoppers. Costco’s food court? Cheap and surprisingly delicious.

“I worked in a library and the people there were kind, but I had a lot of physical safety concerns and one time I was even harassed by a patron and I reported it and it was dismissed. I talked to my supervisor a couple times about my concerns but they were, once again, dismissed, and I stopped feeling safe. After a while, I got used to it, but I realized I deserved to feel safe. It was hurting my mental health to be in that sort of environment, so I left.” — Remy L.

7. You Turn to Alcohol

“My first job was working on a magazine for an editor who was not only demanding, but also irrational and bullying. It was when I found myself coming home and drinking alcohol every night to blot out the stress that I realized I needed to resign.” — Lucy D.

8. Your Boss Is a Bully

“I had begun working there loving my job and loving what I did. I excelled at my job but there were changes in management that ended up being terrible and they were almost corrupt. They bullied the employees they didn’t like and I was one of them. I’m a very no-nonsense type of person, so I hid it very well but it definitely took a toll on me. I couldn’t understand why they hated me so much especially considering how well I did my job.” — Tina S.

9. You Have Bad Dreams About Work Regularly

“Having bad dreams related to work frequently.” — Jessica C.

10. You Dissociate at Work

“I dissociated during every shift I worked, without the usage of any mind-altering substances. I felt like I was dreaming at work, the stress and everything wasn’t even real anymore.” — Katelyn E.

11. Your Boss Doesn’t Acknowledge (or Takes Credit for) Your Accomplishments

13. You’re Struggling to Keep Up With Chores at Home

“I couldn’t sleep the night before going into work.” — Esther S.

16. You Don’t Have Time for Your Hobbies

“When I gave up all my hobbies, even eating or watching TV. I took that job because it was consistently 9 to 5, but the rest of the time, I was having panic attacks.” — Andrew P.

17. You Feel Lonely at Work

“Feeling very lonely even when hundreds of your colleagues are working side by side on the same floor.” — Mohit

18. You Hate the Job You Once Loved

“I didn’t care about it anymore. I used to love it. It was fun for me and I would bounce around at work like I didn’t have a care in the world. It was where I could go to get away from my racing thoughts and already existing trauma. Then by the time I realized it was toxic for me, I didn’t even feel like I was good at it. Or anything. I worked so much that I only had time for sleep in between shifts. I didn’t have a good thing to say about it and I couldn’t really come up with any good reason to stay. I was actually at work when I decided to hospitalize myself early this year.” — Liz S.

If you’re struggling with your mental health because of your job, you’re not alone. It’s only natural to feel overwhelmed from time to time in your job, but if you live with chronic stress, it’s worth considering your options. It might be time to consider changing departments, talking to HR or possibly even leaving your job. You deserve to feel seen and supported in your career.
