    Morning!

    During my first month or so anywhere outside, especially the town, was very difficult to cope with and I couldn't believe it was happening to me! It took me a while, even with Ann, my Fiancee, accompanying to go far or stay out for long.

    Until my GP signed me unfit for work, I was getting by each day (in total denial) by increasing my social life or totally withdrawing, drinking, smoking and eating comfort food. I was spiralling down and down, killing myself because the work situation and one or two eejits there! I had my own office (with window) and could distance myself from the other two managers, one in particular who was undermining me.

    So yes, in answer to your question the work element is a major factor with your stress. As far as I can see they are not being responsible for showing a (legally required) duty of care for your welfare, while at work, by the conditions you have to work in.

    I appreciate that you want to wait until after an event so, best prep yerself for that new job and perhaps when you do leave give them something to buck there ideas up by reporting them - you never know they (in my humble opinion) should compensate you for your illness obviously (if not) caused by them, then exacerbated by them.

    Got those posters up yet matey?!

    Regards,

    David

      im deffo worse here. i have put a poster up in fact right in front of me. when i do leave here it will hurt the company no end. altho they put on me what they dont realise is the moment i leave the place will quickly fail as they are not clever enough to realise that i hold all the strings as it were. so foolish to treat me this way. but then ive let it happen. David would you say the the Cita has helped you a lot?

      Yes, Cita has. I (now) know there are other drugs available, but this is the only one I have been prescribed and I have no complaints, but each to there own obviously. 

      In a way I let it happen to me, although I was making complaints and tried talking with and getting sense out of the Chair of our Trustees for 3 years before I crashed. I was compensated with a small amount, but was advised I should take it further and screw them. I was too ill and weak, but I wished I had. At the end of the day, I have no regrets over not screwing them as what goes around comes around!

      It most probably isn't you. Some of us here are here due to working loyally and hard for a system that is not only modern slavery, but also riddled with sh*te management. There are more articles be written about why people leave companies and it usually ain't down to the company, but some people they dumbly employ!

      Anyone that has never failed has never acheived anything to be truthful! Until we fail how do we know what is right, or the best way to do things or be ourselves?

      Lunch up have to go, later Dude!

      good poing David. it is modern slavery in a way. another problem is i bought great success in sales to a company that was basically failed when i started. it now has a massive turn over but im left spinning plates. even when i go on holiday which is not often, they were in the phone demanding help. so i end up working anway. also at nights weekends etc to keep it going as it is. its also a family buisness so they come first and if they are not on holiday they are on the gold range etc. whilst im here like a lap dog. but once im back on my feet ill take charge of it and get the hell out of here. i really apprciate your replying to me. gives me great hope that im not alone and you know what im going though. so thanks for taking the time. smile steve
