Work is going better. I talked with a co-worker, who talked with my supervisor. Therefore, my supervisor has decided not to insist on me scheduling so many appointments in one day. I'm hoping this will help to decrease my panic attacks.
You should also put down the hours you work without a break or lunch. Every bit of documentation helps if you leave or get fired and they fight your unemployment hopefully it won't come to that but knowing you are prepared is less stressful.
It does sound like they want you to leave. I had that with the owners of a company once-it was like a stand off. They new I had anxiety and did everything they legally could to push my buttons to get me to quit. The owners mother fired me over some thing personal so I walked out the door and right to the unemployment office. I couldn't afford to quit and it was awful before it ended. I'm so sorry you have to endure it.
Work is still stressing me out, and I still keep getting sick. I swear, it's like some of my co-workers are trying to make it miserable enough for me to leave. In case you haven't figured it out-this is a venting e-mail. Everybody keeps pointing out everything I do "wrong." For example, I had another ultrasound scheduled today at 4:00, so I worked through lunch, and decided to leave early. Well, one of the girls said that I had to talk to the supervisor before I do that. Why? Nobody else does. I had actually called in sick this morning, then change my mind and went to work out of responsibility. And this is what I get for working so hard? Why can't people just be nice?
I've just decided to start looking for another job, I've been in this one for six months and I think that's giving it a fair go. I was with my last company for seven years so I'm hoping that this one being so short won't be a problem.
One of my biggest problems is that the person who used to do my job is still there, now that's great for when I'm stuck on things etc but she constantly undermines me, goes behind my back and just can't 'get' that it's not her job any more. And I've had enough.
And the workload is ridiculous, even the girl who works for me who has been doing her job for four years with no issues is stressed to almost breaking point.
I've been sucking back tranquillisers like they're lollies just to get through the day, and have had to start back on antidepressants after years off them.
Bad habits are like a comfortable bed, easy to get into, but hard to get out of ...
For me Spark is all about changing those habits :-)
Unfortunately, work is always this busy. Part of the problem is that I've been so physically sick lately. Another part of the problem is that I start becoming physically sick when I work so hard, but I have to work so hard in order to keep up. If I do not keep up, I become stressed and sick too. I'm screwed no matter what.
Is this overwhelming amount of work something that is temporary, in that it's just a busy time of year, where you can look forward to it slowing down at some point? Or is it always like this?
Remember legally you are entitled to breaks - make sure and use them no matter how busy that you are, get out of the office, if you can go for a walk that does well to clear the head and add a little perspective,it's important to take a step back.
I'm sorry that you in a tough spot, hang in there!
Hi, I know when I don't eat and my blood sugar drops my anxiety goes through the roof. I try to keep a package of cheese and crackers handy. I always had them in my desk when I was working just in case I got too busy for lunch. It may be worth a try to see if it helps.
Is there any way you can take a couple of days off, or would that make it worse. In the past, when I have been at that point, I had to take a couple of days and regroup myself. Try not to look at the big job you have, try and take it a little at a time. As far as your boss, goes, "kill him with Kindness", that has worked for me. Even though he is critizing you, try and take it and learn from it. Tell you appreciate it, sometimes, that catches them off guard and they think again about what they said. Pray for him and ask God's favor on you with your boss. Wish I could help more.
I had said earlier that I needed support. I'm sorry I haven't explained myself yet. This morning has been crazy. I've been seeing clients and doing paperwork all morning. I have another client in ten minutes, and have not even had time to have lunch yet! Maybe I'll have lunch for dinner! I need support because things are getting to be a little too much lately. My supervisor keeps criticizing me,and it's gotten to where I dread even coming to work, and have a severe panic attack when I think about it. The depression has gotten worse too. Help me please!
