New job-depressed anxious unhappy

Posted , 4 users are following.

not sure if this is the correct place to post this but I am going out of my mind with worry and unhappiness...

I started a new job in December, I thought it was what I wanted to do but it has made me incredibly unhappy and I dread going into work. It is having a negative impact on my personal life, I am constantly down, I can't sleep at night, I'm miserable and I believe possibly depressed. I want to leave and I am in contact with my previous employer to try and go back there. Would a doctor sign me of for being so unhappy with the impact it is having on my everyday life, it is impacting relationships etc I don't even want to socialise with anyone,  Also if I was to get singed of sick could I then hand in my notice? I called in sick today as I was awake all night with worry about going in. The thought of going back is making me very anxious. The job role is in a school, it is not particularly stressful but it is having such a negative impact on me. Feeling very low.

    Hi km1995. Sounds to me like u are becoming depressed or heading that way. I would definately suggest u go to yr dr & u should explain everything u have posted here. If its not nipped in the bud mole hills will become mountains & harder for u to deal with. A sincere dr would sign u off sick if he definately thought u were not coping & work was the major contributing factor at least while they best decided how to proceed trestment wise. Make an appt asap. Sorry ur feeling so bad right now! U have def posted in the right place. Were all in the same boat for diff reasons etc & @ diff stages of recovery.. good luck let us know how u get on. ?

    I know how you feel. I just started a new job and it's ruining my life. Can't sleep. Can't think straight. I don't know how I'm gonna get through it. Seeing my GP later this week. We just have to keep telling ourselves that this is temporary and things will get better.
