Meltdown

Oct 02, 2016 10:40 AM

So two weeks ago I had a meltdown. I woke up with such a migraine I could barely use my eyes to see. I went to the doc and she said that because me stress and anxiety levels are so high (because of work) - I had to go onto meds for chronic pain, stress and anxiety. The difference in the stability of my emotional and mental processes with the reduction of pain is encouraging!

It was hard accepting that I needed help and that I couldn't be strong by myself anymore.

She also told me I needed an extensive period of leave from work. Then I had to either have my boss reduce my workload or I need to find another job that is less stressful.

Telling my boss this news was pretty challenging. It went well in the end and I have a commitment from him to has a resolution by next Friday.

I cannot express how relieved I was to be able to choose my health over work and still come out tops.

All that needs to happen now is a check up and the final number of leave days I need to take be clarified...☺
