I would like a bit of advice please, I suffer with stress in my work place. I had a panic attack on thursday, I walked out and drove home. Has anybody with MS suffered with panic attacks?
I have recently been stressed in work, alot people leaving, therefore I am the most “senior” member of staff, I can’t stick up for myself, because the fact is im not the most senior member of staff, I am just the muppet taking on any old rubbish work load. Thursday I had enough and I was trying to stick up for myself, my team leader ordered me to go upstairs to help out on the phones (even though there were other members of staff available) I went upstairs, had my break at 3 pm one of my colleagues from the office gave me filthly looks, told my team leader where I was, she came to get me even though I was on my break, took me into the centre of the building where everyone could see me and asked if I had a problem , I welled up said yes I have I am stressed with the work, she said I was the most senior member of staff and thats why I am having all this work to do. Since being diagnosed with MS last year I have found that I have slown down with my work. I starting blubbing away, told her I can’t discuss this now and cried through the building, had a panic attack upstairs where I got my belongings and walked out.
At the moment I cannot face going back into work Monday. Has anyone felt like this? Have you got any advice please?
Thank you for your time,
