Help- can't stop worrying about work, what are my options?

I've worked for the same company for over 5 years. In that time I've had 4 bosses already, and lots has changed - including the function I was taken on for being absorbed into another.
We are now being reorganised again. I had a letter saying that my job title was changing and my line manager was also changing - to someone who reports into my current manager. Also my team will be reduced from 2 to 1. These changes are being described as covered by a variation clause of my contract.

I am feeling totally demoralised; my role is said to be the same - but actually I know it won't be; and I suspect its a long way from what my original job description was. But that may be subjective. I don't have an updated JD.

My question is- what can I do?

I am just worried the whole time, I feel like I'd like them to make me redundant (even though this is a bit of a risk as am single mum- but feel sure I can get a new job- I am close to London. I just feel like I need a break to regain my strength!) can't think of how I should take this up with them. Feel like im being slotted into an area I don't want to be in, and I won't perform well in, and I don't have any recourse.
Any advice welcome- especially of course if you have personal experience or expertise in this area.

Thank you

It sounds like you don't really want to be there, and all the changes sound very stressful

I would suck up the changes and start looking for something else

Just start looking for something else. You sound unsettled and unhappy. Why would you wait for even more of the same plus a higher workload I presume as your going to be one person down.

Sadly, this is fairly common stuff for most workplaces these days.
