This has become a serious issue with me. Serious enough that I wake up every morning and have to use the bathroom several times before I can even make it out the door in the morning. Why? My Manager has a personal issue with me that has now become an ill effect on my health because I feel personally attacked of my credibility, work ethic and my personal opinions about respecting elders.
I need my job just as everyone else does in this economy. I am so exhausted by the end of the day, I fall asleep as soon as I return home from work. The stress level is excruciating. What can someone do when they are personally attacked in the workplace? I happen to be in a Union, file a grievance, no positive outcome, nothing changed. If this was another time with a better economy, I would excel somewhere else but there are no positions available. I am stuck dealing with the insanity.
Since, I am stuck in a position with no help from Management, how can I feel better emotionally and physically at this point? It is only up to me since there is no help anymore for the worker.
Here is some great signs I found on Help Guide.org.
Signs and symptoms of excessive job and workplace stress
Feeling anxious, irritable, or depressed
Apathy, loss of interest in work.
Muscle tension or headaches
Loss of sex drive
Using alcohol or drugs to cope
This website also provides some great information on how to reduce your stressful life at work. Here is the full website information http://helpguide.org/mental/work_stress_management.htm.
The first thing I am going to do for myself is start a strict exercise regiment. I have the opportunity to use workout facilities at work and I will consume myself at my lunch breaks in there from now on. It is all about me now. When you run out of options of trying and talk to your boss and this fails, become selfish and make YOU feel better. I am trying so hard to be optimistic right now.
Do you have any suggestions? Are you in my position and feel so stressed out that your health is affected? What are you doing to make your life better?
