Writing this as my heart is racing and feeling sick. After struggling for the last 18 months and having more and more work piled onto me I have finally cracked. I had been to my bosses on 3 seperate occasions and asked for help and even offered hand my notice in from my current role. During this meeting my boss said I needed to put it writing that I wished to resign so wrote theletter and sent to my union to check ok. They came back 10 days later and said last week they would also need to put in writing what I would be offered. When I went to my boss I was told that it was being reflected on. In the meantime I am still doing the same amount of work. Couldn't face meeting both bosses on Thurs so took day off work (had already been to see wonderful doctor previously) tried to do right thing on the day and sent in all work but clearly wasn't right and recieved a work email (I know shouldn't be looking) which demanded I needed to do this this and this as soon as I got back which has pushed me over the edge. Saw doc late on Fri night who has signed me off for 2 weeks on work related stress (she has been wonderful) but now sat here absolutely terrified feeling my career is over I have failed and I have let everyone down and how do I tell work. (Major event I was meant to be organising on Friday) It is so stressful if you do and so stressful if you don't!
