Daily headache/tmj pain and menopausal anxiety affecting my life too much

Posted , 2 users are following.


quiet rant, no energy for loud one!

been in pain practically every day last few weeks and anxious and depressed. affected me badly in my temporary job. felt i had to battle on despite being in very bad pain. headache/tmj. my anxiety stopping me from showing the managers just how good i am. which is frustrating and depressing. im just going to try to get through the 4 days i have left to work. despite having registered interest in staying on, i couldn't cope. i feel as though they see me as pretty useless anyway. it is so frustrating when i know how good i can be at my job, and how i cant show them who i really am as a person

let alone tell them how much pain im in so that they could understand and appreciate just how good a worker i am and how commited i have been to the job, unlike the youngsters who stand around and chat and yet are seen as better at the job than me. stupid to think this way but just p***d off and incredibly frustrated!

    Hi just saw your post and thought id let you know someone's listening to you

    I'm not a medical professional so cant offer any advice medically . it must be hard to keep a positive mindset when youre in pain and anxious Theres no shame in feeling how you do.

    Please be kind to yourself and look at the achievement of getting to work and your work ethic despite your obvious pain. This is something to be proud of. if you can try and build on this to raise your esteem and to lower your anxiety.
