Sorry guys if the subject of my post threw anyone. I am just really upset today and need to vent and need a big hug!  sad I just recently moved and have been trying to find a job. All of this has caused ALOT of PA's and severe anxiety. Well a week and a half ago I did get a job (as some of you already know). I am now working as an office assistant at a private Psyche practice w/ 6 docs. Well I have been doing well (or so I thought) as I am EXTREMELY busy all day long, not a moment to take a breath. And I have received an inkling of training, probably an hour if even that. I have basically trained myself. Well today my boss (or one of two, the other is her husband who is very sweet) jumped all over me for forgetting to check my voicemail after I got back from lunch. I had forgotten as I was trying to check insurance benefits just as she had told me too. She did this in front of 2 of the other docs and I was SOOOOO embarrassed. I almost cried, I turned beet red and my lip was trembling. All I wanted to do was run away. The other docs didn't say anything but I could tell they felt sorry for me. I bet they would have even more if they knew I have A/P. lol Luckily when she did this it was quitting time. I HAD planned on staying late and finishing up with ALL of the doctors pt evaluations just to help them but I didn't. I just picked up my purse and clocked out. I feel so worthless and stupid and I don't even want to go back there. On my way home I cried and my chest has been killing me all evening. I am jittery and shakey. I finally had to take a pill, something I haven't had to do. I am trying to stay positive and know deep down in my heart that she will see that she shouldn't have treated me that way. I don't even want an apology, I just want to be appreciated for what I do for them. I bust my behind trying to keep everything organized and easy for all the docs there. And I LOVE their patients and treat them like gold as I know what they are going through. I love my job but I can't handle a boss who attacks me in front of other doctors and demeans me unreasonably. Sorry this post is so long guys. Just feeling very bad tonight. Thank you all for listening. Love you all, God bless... Idie/panicinID

Big Hugs idie
 
I'm so sorry this has happened to you. Your boss needs an attitude adjustment. No one has the right to treat a person like that. I hope she does realize this by tomorrow and says she sorry. Try not to feel bad, you didn't do anything to feel bad about, if anything she should feel bad. I hope tomorrow is a much better day for you and you feel better.

Hi Idie, I'm so sorry you had a bad experience like that. Congrats to you for getting the new job. Listen, it takes time to acclamate (sp?) to a new position. Give yourself a break. The outburst says a lot about your boss and not you. Hang in there!

Hang in there Idie,

No-one should be treated like that!! grrr Your boss was completely out of order and she owes you an apology!!! As hopeful has said it says a lot about her and not you. I am a Manager and it is an absolute no-no to demean a member of staff at all, never mind in front of others!! I bet you anything she got at least a disapproving look from the others there if not a comment in private!!!

(((((((((hugs)))))))))) to you and hope that you have a very much better day tomorrow, will be thinking of you. You stand tall girl, you have done nothing wrong!!! You are better than that!!!!

take care

Ann

Hi Idie...(((((((((Hugs)))))))))),

That is so awful! I can't imagine that a psych doc would even think of acting like that! What if a patient had walked in or something???????????? I can't imagine anyone in my therapist's office ever acting like that to anyone! They are trained to be compassionate and understanding!!!! Of course, you would think there wouldn't be a better place in the world to work than in a therapist's office... go figure. Maybe she needs to take anger management!

As normal said, we are all behind you..

Thank you all so very much for all your support. I agree with all of you too I was just so upset. Well I do believe one of the other docs may have said something (in particular her husband) as she was very nice today. She explained they had a neuro to just up and quit on them (before I started) and she is overloaded. She had tears in her eyes and I really thought she was gonna start crying right then. I just told her that I would do all I could to help her to the best of my abilities. When she left to go back in session her husband (the head doc) told me not to worry, that they all understood how hard I was trying and that none of the 'issues' were my fault, that I was doing a great job. So I do feel much better today. Thank you all so much - I love you all! God bless...   Idie

I think you handled it all with dignity and class and I am so glad that you had a very good day and was talked to about what happend
I do believe there are many docs nurses health care workers that are also dealing with anxiety and panic issues as well .........
Happy you had a great day

First of all, I am So Proud of you for taking care of you! Staying was a nice plan but leaving sends a mesage that you can not be treated that way. Excellent! If, as you say, the other doctors felt bad for you, you can be sure that they talked to the doctor about it in the privacy of their offices.

I am sorry of what happened to you. I understand how you feel that you are working so hard and you try to do the best you can. However remember we are people and we can make mistake. Chin up and just do the best you can tomorrow is a new day. Go in there and start fresh.

I am kind of in the same place as you are, I work for an insurance company where it is so busy and not to mention my line of job have to deal with some unreasonable outrages and rude. The insureds are rude because they don't get what they want which is more money for theirs car. There is nothing I can do, we can only pay for whatever the car is worth.
I took the last call today and this insured is normally rude to me without any reason, always screaming it's not fair. I had a few calls with him and I know that this one is a bad news. However I do my best to handle him, he still screaming. Everytime he talked to me he screamed for something. A person like him is horrible, I asked him to treat me like I am a person just the same as he is. He said you could have fool me. OH well, still have an ability to complain that I was rude to him. I wonder which parts that I was rude to him the part that call him Sir or the part that I asked him to treat me like a person.

But tomorrow I will start fresh again.
