So, like two weeks back, work gave me a break down. To the point i have been hospitalized. I think my work needs new staff.
I was in a similar situation a couple of years ago so I really feel for you. Thankfully I didn't get hospitalised but that's partly because I have a phobia of sick and hospitals terrify me so it would have been counter productive. I had the crisis team working with me from home though pretty recently as its still very up and down. Be careful that you look after your rights as far as work is concerned. Even the most well informed workplace (I work in Mental Health) can get it wrong and miss the point. If your not with a union it might be worth looking into joining one or going to the CAB and asking about your rights. Sorry I'm assuming your in the UK, where are you living? Also be careful not to make any big decisions about your future while you are ill. Depression is awful for distorting your perspective so seek independent advice and don't be rushed into making decisions. In spite of everything I know, I'm still feeling my way and very up and down. My thoughts are definitely with you so please remember you are not alone. There are loads of us out there.
Also check out Minds website, they do tons of leaflets on everything including surviving work and your rights and benefits available.
I'm Canadian, But it's the WSBC that help us. They are already looking into it, and it was horrid cause I got caught in the middle of two people who wanted to be the bosses, but wheren't but still had more sinority than me so i had to listen to both, but they kept trying to undermind the other one and ended up stressing me out in thefrist place, and than one grabbed me roughly (which is the biggest NO NO NO with me, i spaze if you ever grab my even a little rough) and i broke into peices.
omg, are you ok...I am glad they are looking into it...are you ready to go back? I mean its harsh. I can't believe one touched you.
I would report them to the police as well, because grabbing roughly is assult. and workers comp, you were out because one of them hurt you. I would try.
This sounds such a horrible situation to have been in. They should never have been rough with you. Thats so out of order. I agree with Michelle that it counts as assault but I can understand that its probably really hard to report it and you're probably feeling pretty vulnerable right now. Just take things slowly and be kind to yourself and let others support you. x
anyway, we support you. hugs. if you need anything, email me ok
you're all so sweet
I'm back at work, but two things have changed, big time. The one that grabbed me is at the moment suspened until further notice, the other the dish girl and cleaner for the next while, until after grad, and if nothing is fixed, she to gets suspened. We are just sooo short staffed as it is. Grad would be a nightmare without atleast one of them. And after grad i have a week off.
I am glad you are feeling better!
Me to, Man i miss you guys
Hugs back. Oh well, two days off now, maybe i might acctually get something relaxing done.
