Off with work related stress and anxiety caused by bullying and threats at work. I’ve always been quite a confident person but I do care what people think and worry! I’m finding it hard to leave the house at the moment, I hate being cramped up inside and try to go for walks but feel utter panic at the thought of seeing someone from work which result in me hiding inside and sleeping most of the day. I went to the occupational health and the doctor was kind and helpful. He felt it was unwise to even consider thinking about returning to that school in the near future and he told me in his words to have a fresh start. The report is quite harsh in a way on the school which is worrying me however I have got a union rep dealing with it. He also said to get out, socialise, go to the gym! All the things I used to like. I live about 20 minutes drive from the school but I’m still scared! The school might think I’m lying if they see me out socialising ? Anyone got good advice on how to get over the fear? I’ve cut myself off from everyone this past year apart from parents due to stress at work and being quite young I feel like completely isolated as I live alone. Now I don’t have work I don’t know what to do with my time ?
