Hang in there, tell yourself everything is normal, and keep on truckin'!!!
Thanks Leigh Ann and Lyn ((hugs)) it's just so nice to hear from people who understand. Today my work day has started badly again. I get in and on my desk is a list of tasks I need to do (the ones I already do everyday without being reminded) and it's from the boss's daughter. ?? Then two minutes later my manager calls to say she thinks we have had a "mis-understanding" about rosters and I need to pay more attention. Then she complains that I didn't notice that we were running low on soap in the bathroom (this occured when I was at home, off shift but it's still MY fault). I also found out that two people got a pay rise last week and now earn more than me despite the fact that I am senior to them and have been here longer. I know these all seem like petty things but they add up. I know she'll (manager) be in soon to pick on other things I've done wrong and I'm shaking. I cried on my way in today.
I suppose I'm so scared because I've been fired at short notice before for no good reason (oh we just hired someone new and don't have enough desks - seriously how lame is that?!! I'm just anticipating "the talk". I can really commiserate Leigh Ann - I've had some pretty bad experiences as a female/panicker/human over the years...sorry to hear about your husband. My ex had aspbergers too. I'm sorry to be so negative, I just don't cope with criticism or change. I'm just going to get back to work now and keep my head down. Thanks again for the support all.
Thanks for the support Lyn I really could use you sitting on my shoulder (I'll try and imagine it!!) I've decided today not to be intimidated by anyone no matter what they say (squaring my shoulders lol). I'm going to be strong and get through this until I find another job.
Michelle, thanks for the kind words, I'm sorry you're going through this as well, it really rocks your self-esteem....Maybe we can hold each others "virtual" hands through this. Good luck to you too.
