Hello all I'm an NQT and have just completed my first term and about to start my 2nd. I am becoming increasingly worried about how my job is affecting me psychologically. I cry pretty much every night and morning, I feel sick about going to work, I have started to develop heart palpitations which I have never had before and I feel completely miserable, including when I'm at home. My school isn't 'bad' and the staff are always going on about how lucky we are to work here which makes me feel worse. I will feel like an absolute failture if I quit my NQT year as I've put in so much work, but I feel like the job is bigger than me and I feel a complete lack of interest or support from my department. I am one of 4 and have been given GCSE, A Level classes and a form group (Y11). I am also teaching French at KS4 which I said I couldn't do at interview (I've struggled on with it but I can't handle it anymore). I also have few friends at the school as I missed the boat early on and now feel quite isolated. Even small things like having a staff meeting after school are over-worrying me. I don't want to feel like this any more. Each day is unbearable and I just want to walk out but feel trapped as I'm an NQT and need to finish my year if it's to be worth anything. I also feel a huge responsibility to my Y11s and Y12s and feel like I can't leave them in the lurch. Please advise if you feel the same or if you know what might be my best option to improve my situation because at the moment I don't know what to do and I feel completely on my own. (My boyfriend is also a teacher and has never had any of these problems so I don't want to burden him) Thanks.
