I have gone through an absolutely awful time this term. I have been almost constantly threatened and had allegations made against me. I managed to secure another post at the beginning of last month and thought I would be left alone, and I was for a while. Now however it's all starting again - with three weeks left to go before I leave, I feel absolutely panicked and scared. I started crying in a staff meeting tonight, I just couldn't stop myself from shaking and from tears coming out. I feel so alone, I honestly have never ever felt this low in my life and I just want to wipe out my existence, I don't mean I'm suicidal or anything like that but I just want to disappear for a while. I hate the idea of going off but I am starting to feel I have little or no alternative. Is it really awful to have time off with stress (work related) and does this go on any files?
