Hi everyone, hope you all had a good Xmas. Mine was very difficult. I slept badly on Xmas eve and woke up with a crushing tension headache. My girlfriend virtually dragged me to her Mum and Dad's house where we were spending the day and night. Headache was terrible and I forced myself through the day and felt really miserable. Didn't even enjoy food which is totally unlike me. This morning I've slept and my physical symptoms are better. This means rather than being focused upon my pain I'm feeling depressed and very anxious. I have a Welfare meeting with my manger on Monday which I am dreading. I do not feel fit to return to work in any way. It is a small project and I know he will be wanting to get rid of me. The union cannot represent me as I joined too late. The fear of losing my job is causing me crippling anxiety which leads me to worry about not being able to work at all in the future. I've really been trying not to stress by practicing mindfulness, relaxation but I feel sick with worry at the moment. My GP hasn't been much help. I can't see a way through this at the moment.
