Discussion in 'Workplace dilemmas' started by The_Teacher1010, Dec 6, 2011.

  1. I am in the same boat. I want to leave as soon as possible. I am off sick at the moment with depression which is work related. The thought of having to stay there until Easter makes me feel horrible.

  3. I'm also in a similar position. Started a new job in September and now realise it was a big mistake :-( nice to know we're not alone.
  4. Hi,

    I know people will tell me not to make big decisions but I have made the decision to leave at Easter as I planned earlier. I know people will say that I need to be well to make a decision like this but I have considered this carefully and I have sought help and my GPs and people helping me who talk to me on a regular basis know that my problems are due to work.

    I am still of sick and yes I do have days where I am very anxious and down and usually those are days when I am contacted by someone at school or I think of school. The head is leaving me alone but I am scared of her. Since having no contact with her my panic attacks have stopped. I know I need to resign by the end of Feb and I am in the process of writing my resignation letter. I just don't know how to go about resigning while off. Shall I post it to school? I really can not face talking to her or really having any contact with her at all. Shall I email it? Or both? My biggest fear is that she says she didn't get it and expects me to return! I need to move on with my life and I can't do that while tied to that place! Please help.

    I really don't know what to do. If anyone has been in a similar situation or has any advice could they please help me.

    Thank you.
