Supportive boss #Kindness #Anxiety #EmotionalHealth

So one of my coworkers said something atrocious to me. In front of a coworker who did not intervene. I started sweating and shaking but couldn’t leave (I’m lead tonight) I was really beside myself. I texted my amazing supportive boss who I call “ mom” who backed me up and promised to speak to the ass hat. I’m still sweaty and clammy and thinking about taking my emergency klonopin I keep in my backpack. But instead I’m posting here. I can use some positive words #watercooler #Work #Anxiety #bigotry #stupid is not an excuse

Negativity is draining #Stress #Workplace #Depression #chronic #Caregiver #Drained

I’m having a really hard time at work now. I sort of need work to be an escape from the rest of the craziness in my life. I’m at this job 10 months so I don’t have the luxury of tons of seniority. Some ppl left and some new ppl joined and such an air of NEGATIVITY and malaise has descended. I find it so hard to stay upbeat (not easy anyway) and provide appropriate patient care. Every job has positives and negatives please .
Anyway thanks for listening. Any ideas validation or helpful comments would be appreciated #chronic #Caregiver #HealthCare #negativity #Drained #miserable #watercooler #Workplace
