Don’t really know what advice can be given. I seem to have struggled for so long now, around 6 years For the first two years this was due to a previous Head who, after years of a terrifying reign finally went sick and in the end resigned. However, since then I have to some extent continued to struggle somewhat. More recently, this has escalated significantly due to being triggered by a current work situation. I now feel that I have a very definite issue with my mental health - can’t sleep, can’t switch off or relax, the enjoyment has gone.... I currently take medication and put on a front at work to mask how I feel. I need to go back next week as I just can’t be absent again - was off for a few weeks last term and this didn’t go down too well.
