Ive suffered with stress for many years and I have always tried to keep it under control. Im on medication and had counselling and done a cbt course. I have strategies to help me cope with life but nothing seems to be working at the moment. Im getting very short tempered and feel I cant cope. I work in a primary school as a teaching assistant which I changed to about 12 months ago as my previous job was making me depressed but now I feel that this job is getting me really stressed, The children cant help the way they are but I get so short tempered with them. I dont like this and other adults have asked me if Im alright. Ive had to tell a couple of staff about my medical history.
I dont want to leave the job but I cant see any alternative at the moment. Its making me so stressed. I dont want to end up hitting a child as that will get me in so much trouble. I feel like hitting some at times! I hate being out of control.
