    After the worst year of my life with work related stress and depression, I have now been back at work for almost a term and everything is great, the main cause of my issues is no longer there and I am even off the antidepressants!

    For other people out there with similar issues, there can be a light at the end of the tunnel - even if it takes a while to get to find it!

    Well done, you! It's good to hear a story with a happy ending.

    Thanks for sharing, from the other end of the tunnel sometimes it's difficult to see the light :)

    Hi barmy and azzie

    You have both been posting throughout the time I have been logging on whilst off work with stress. You and others have been a comfort to me knowing I am not the only one struggling.

    I too have been back at work - half a term now. I'm happy to be leaving my current school next week as they were the root of the problem. But I have enjoyed being back in the classroom and I'm looking forward to semi retirement and regular supply at a different school in September.

    There is light at the end of the tunnel. Back in January I would not have thought it possible that I would be teaching with confidence again now.
  5. Good to hear when people recover. It's just sad that work stress is on the rise.
