I left my last workplace at Christmas and was signed off for the whole of that half term prior to leaving due to work related stress. Fast forward to now; new school, lovely colleagues. No workplace stress beyond the usual teacher to do list but I’m starting to feeel as if I can’t cope. The anxiety hadn’t gone away completely and I’ve had a few wobbly moments since beginning at this new place. This all came to a head yesterday when I had a series of panic attacks and went home early from work. Today I am off once more. I’ve visited my GP and she has signed me off with anxiety. I’m now feeling dreadful and very concerned with what my new employer will think of me.
