Hi, I'm not completely sure what I'm looking for here - I suppose mostly I'm just wondering if anyone else ever feels like this too, and what you've done about it. I am feeling really stressed and anxious right now. Since getting back from work, I have tried to relax but I just have a million work related thoughts spinning round in my head (and a large pile of marking sitting in my office) and I feel rubbish. Recently I've been having some wheezing and weird breathing, but only at times like the end of the day or in the car on my way to work, not when I'm rushing around and being active. But my situation is not anything like most posters on here. I do not feel that I am being victimised at work in any way. I am part of a really great, strong department team. I had good pay progression (jumped 2 points on the pay scale) last year and recently got a TLR post for coaching/developing other teachers, which I was asked to apply for as a result of being identified as one of the stronger teachers in the school. I feel able to approach senior staff when I have a concern and that my views are listened to (even if sometimes nothing changes as a result, it feels like my concerns are taken seriously and we have a proper conversation about it). I think every school is dysfunctional in some way or another, but in my school it's generally quite benign - lapses in organisation, communication, etc., rather than deliberate bullying or undermining of staff. Outwardly, things are going well. I enjoy being in the classroom and hVe good relationships with colleagues and pupils. Yet I don't feel able to cope at all. In the week, my time is filled with the day-to-day tasks I need to do. Planning lessons, meetings, marking key assessments, responding to things that need to be dealt with straight away. Anything else gets shunted back to the weekend, and at the moment this means stuff to do with my house purchase, the residential trip abroad that I'm running in a fornight's time, and more mundane stuff like marking class sets of exercise books. So I get to Friday evening, and want to relax, but all I can think about is how much I've got to do this weekend and how I'm going to manage my time. I've felt like this at points most weekends (other than in the holidays) for the past 2-3 months. I feel so stupid for getting stressed like this at the weekend when I should be taking a well earned break, but I don't know how to prevent it.
