Went thru similar patch a few weeks ago. It will be ok. I felt better after scheduling a telemed therapy appointment. Do you have time to break away to do that or use an EAP to talk to a counselor on the phone tomorrow afternoon?

Left work early and spent 4 hrs crying today. Nothing was really wrong. I mean more wrong than any other day. I hate but need my job and I’m not happy at home. I think a ton of people feel this way. Just another reason to be nice to everyone around me. Never know who else is having a rough time.

Sorry OP and Principal 1. Please take care. I have faced similar situations in past and while I don’t have a solution yet but sometimes it is okay to accept the circumstances and make your peace with them. Then you can actively work to fix things over a period of time. Be strong.

Going through the same thing. Going to talk to a therapist and hoping it’s going to help

To all in this post that are struggling. I have been there in the deepest darkest place. Tried to kill myself. Here I am to let you know there is hope. Seek professional help - therapist, psychiatrist. It’s ok to take time off - the job will still be there. Mine was almost 6 later. Take meds if you need them. I didn’t at first which only exacerbated my issues. Feel free to dm if you have specific questions or just need to speak to someone who knows what you are going through. Hang in there. Take deep breathes. One positive thought at time

I am here if you wanna talk

My GF has trouble standing up for herself. She's on client travel and one of her co-workers made her really upset (very uncalled for and should have never happened). She called me crying. After consoling her I told her that she needs to go to her manager and possibly HR (yes it's to that level).
She told me she can't and she's not that person (she thinks she'll get the other person fired). She knows that she should and hates that she doesn't stand up for herself. What can I do to help?
