    Managed to get myself a new permanent job having been on supply for a few years following a near capability procedure. But find myself in the same position that I cant really cope with the amount of work and organisation of it all. Also, my own lack of subject knowledge in maths and English.
    I watch clips on the internet about how to teach a certain method, say in maths, then deliver whats been shown, but it just isn't right.
    Also not kept up with the dreaded planning...and its 2.15am and im still wide awake.

    Sounds like you're getting worried about things again, which will heighten the tension, make you sleep less well . . .

    Well done for recognising you're entering possible 'health problems' early, so I suggest a trip to your Drs. I've read somewhere a large proportion of their patients are teachers suffering stress, I know many serving teachers (who though they keep it fairly quiet) are 'under the Dr.'! So the Dr. probably won't be that surprised.

    It may not involve taking tablets, but other means to help yourself. Were you given any coping strategies last time? Time to dust them off, if you were!;)

    Take care. Stress is insidious and creeps up on one and each time one gets better at recognising the signs to begin early intervention.
