Returned from sick leave and found out from other people at the office I totally messed up on a project that I worked on prior to sick leave. Now that my reputation has been ruined and facing an upcoming negative performance review. No one at the office stood up for me despite of positive work done prior to COVID or wants to hear what I have to say. I m bothered by this gaslighting practice both professionally and personally. I felt I was designated as the scape goat. Continued.

Been performing like a high performer on my client up to this point and all the sudden I find myself looking up a therapist and being almost useless to my team (maybe useless is harsh, but I can’t will myself to get basic stuff done at this point).

Don’t know how to explain it yet, but I wanted to come here and vent. Anyone else experience this?
