Just hang in there. Things will get better 🤗
I have BPD and if you didn't know it makes thoughts like that quite hard to shift, plus makes me feel more vulnerable than the next person...I have been unable to control my negative emotions at work and feel I'm gonna lose my job soon...
If that happens and these thoughts don't go I don't wanna know what I will do to myself. I can't find any therapy and not on medication for it, and it's 6 days til I have a hospital appointment regarding my ADHD. What do I do...?
Wow, this has to be really tough right now. My thoughts are to find someone to talk to. Your condition makes you more empathetic to your friends, which is not really healthy for your own state of mind. Call a help line or something...
...perhaps? They may be able to help you compartmentalize your friends' issues. And help you cope until you get to your appt. Also, if you need to talk to your boss or human resources about how your job may be affected, do that!...
...If they know that you're trying and just going through a hard time, they may be able to cut you some slack right now. I hope you get through this difficult time!
I don't think they will cut me slack, I'm the only designer so I can't slow down or have an 'easy day' so to speak. Plus my bosses wife is a bully and always puts me down, which makes me feel so depressed at work and doesn't help my mental health...
I know I can't keep this up in this environment anymore because this job has caused so much stress and affected my mental health to the worst it's ever been and don't actually rely on money for a car or bills, just would hate to let my family down...
Keep in mind that they might have no choice but to cut you slack. That's why talking to HR might be a good option. Sometimes there are leave options too... just a suggestion. You can also look for something new perhaps!
I have started setting up something myself, as everything I do at work I can do at home, (I work as a designer for a small printing company). But since I came back from my lunch break after having a bit of an episode with the bosses wife earlier...
...she has been nothing but nice when I came back, asking how my lunch was and what I did, and when I did the work she said 'that's perfectly done, thank you' and more 'thank yous'. She NEVER shows respect or tells me when I've done right
My head is honestly so confused, it's like everything I think one minute is changed the next, this is too confusing. And how do you talk to human resources??
In the US anyway, ask your boss how to get in touch with HR. They have laws to protect your privacy and make sure you are treated properly. Glad you're getting some respect, though! That's always nice!
Perhaps there are some tasks you could get ahead on?
All the forms have been attended to, most of them is a case of waiting for an email response, so dunno what to tackle atm
Good to hear!
Glad to hear it! Keep an eye on your high moods as carefully as you would low mood, high moods can be just as bad for some people. That said, keep going!
Thank you so much, so good to see that I have additional support on top of the friends that have helped me too :)
All she does is make sly comments and when I just tried having a conversation with her she just straight up blanked me! What do I even do when I'm at a job where the work I like doing but the environment completely demotivates me?
I can relate but unfortunately have no answers :/
Meant to be a '4' for the mood. But honestly this job his affected my mental health so much and I HATE the environment, but what's the alternative, leave and have no income???
