Hi all, I've recently been really stressed and feeling anxious about work. I was taken to hospital not long ago with a bad panic attack (my first one!). I feel sick about going into work and spent the end of the Christmas holiday crying at the thought of going back. I spoke to my HT because I wanted to leave (and still do). I said that I felt I needed to leave at Easter but as I'm in Year 2, I didn't want to leave them right before they take heir SATs. I asked if it was possible to leave at May half term so that I could see them through their SATs. I obviously knew that this wasn't a usual leaving date and you need permission from governors. It was made quite clear by the HT that that's not happening and I either leave at Easter or July. I have no idea what to do now! On one hand I think I need to leave at Easter but I feel as though I'd be letting the children down right before SATs! If I do leave at Easter I think I'd feel so guilty about it too. I'm unsure though if I'd last until July and I really don't want to make myself more stressed/anxious. Can anyone offer any insight? I really don't know what to do.
