I can resonate with your work issues--from the point of view of both having been a manager and having been an employee with a "challenging" manager. First of all, I would like to remind you that you are a very capable young lady, having gainful employment at age 60--no small feat in these economic times! I am encouraging you to remind yourself of the power you actually have and take control over the "sinking, sinking" feeling. You are not hapless, hopeless and helpless. You may need a little refresher course from a therapist or a good friend in living up to your potential, but you ARE capable.
In the meantime, here are some articles that may be helpful for you. What follows are links to articles about dealing with one's boss: www.mayoclinic.com/health/assertive/SR0004
I'm expecting that you will feel empowered after reading them, and you may want to schedule a meeting with your boss to present in a clear and unemotional way what your needs are. Stay in touch, okay? We've got your back!!
