Just wondering how others handle their work situation on the days when they physically and mentally can't even force themselves to go in?
Especially if you aren't open about your mental health problems at work.
For me usually I just power through it and struggle as best as I can, and I've done this for the last 3 years with varying levels of success. Today feels...different though, I'm thinking about work tomorrow and even the idea of going outside and putting myself through an entire 10 hour shift is so overwhelming it's almost laughable.
I've only been absent once during my 3 years at my current place of work, but we're so short staffed and 2 people are on holiday on top of that so me taking a few days off will be a massive inconvenience.
Plus I can't really shake off the guilt i'd feel about taking a day or two off. My job isn't exactly difficult so I feel like an idiot for not being able to cope, and right now I'm failing at even the simplest of tasks and I keep beating myself up over it.
