Apologies long story, signed off sick for minimum of three weeks due to stress. This has been coming for a while due to toxic/lazy LM; complicated as we’re employed by two different organisations. Raised issues to my employer with a view to raising grievance last year,, management decided mediation best course of action. Timing not great as mediation set for early Jan, unfortunately, a difficult time always for me personally even when things going well! Having met with mediator for one to one session, decided joint mediation ‘not right’ for me as feeling very emotional, isolated and if situation we were in was my doing. Can’t see me going back at the moment, feeling very down and lonely, anyone have any tips to stay strong please.

If you feel you want to draw a line under your employment because you don't think it can ever 'work', you could use the next 3 weeks to get your CV up to date and start daily searches on sites like Indeed and CW Jobs.

It depends whether you have a service history you are prepared to give up eg less than 2 years. Sometimes it's best to move forward and be happy.

Believe me, when you find a job where you're appreciated and supported you'll feel so much better! flowers

Thanks Daisy, I’m a little better, still a bit anxious and tearful. I am already applying for jobs which makes I’m not wasting the time off.

Nice one, that's what I like to hear! I hope you get something good and can escape the toxic environment that affected your health (nothing more important than health and peace of mind!)
