Re: Spikey- Regarding working
Wow Pat, your former boss sounds so much like mine, it's scary! I too get the silent treatment, she will completely ignore me if I have had to take any sick time off and it's not unusual for her to go up to a week without saying anything to me at all, not even acknowledging me, and even to the point of actually turning her back on me and walking off if I say something to her. I can't believe a 50-year-old woman can be so pathetic and childish. And as for your co-worker who was going for the chemo treatment, I can just see my boss saying EXACTLY the same thing in the same situation. It's horrendous.
I'm glad to hear that at least your life is so much better because the stress levels have dropped so much. I know for my own sake I have to do something about getting out of here, but I cannot afford any time without a job as I have to be able to pay my rent as I am locked into a lease on this place until February next year. I keep checking the job sites and keeping my fingers crossed!
I have had panic attacks for years (first occurred when I was having some marriage problems and at the same time my mother was diagnosed with a massive brain tumour, emotionally I just couldn't cope) and they came back with a vengeance when all this started. Walking helps me a lot too, and I try to get out as much as I can. I used to love to go for walks at night but can't any more because I don't have a dog now and don't feel safe out by myself.
I'm so sorry you ended up losing your job because of the vertigo, but by the sound of it you're better off out of there! Emotionally and mentally anyway. Thanks for the good wishes - great to hear that your brain fog has gone, hope you continue to get better and good luck with the job hunt.
