My GP has signed me off for 4 weeks with work related stress and anxiety. She advised me to look for another job, as I can't even face thinking about school. My partner phones in for me, I haven't been able to set cover or do any marking, not even checking my school email, and changing my homepage. I spend a lot of time in tears, and always get someone else to answer the phone.I'm also not sleeping properly! I can't go into detailed reasons behind my illness, but stopping a fight is part of the cause. If she is right, and I won't be able to get back in front of a class, has anyone ideas on what course of action I should/could take? I can't afford to just resign as I am the sole worker in the family, and I have a mortgage to pay. Worrying about the future is not helping me to resolve my problems.
