Hi, I work at Tesco and I am currently having difficulties with my manager and her boss who works in the office. I suffer from mental illness where I have really bad outbursts of depression and anxiety. I also have been going back and forth lately to the hospital because I just found out I have ovary problems and cant have children, they haven't been supportive one single bit and because I had a few hospital appointments and couldn't come in to do my shift the manager of my manager took me into the office and screamed in my face, called me pathetic and told me to get my act together. I am being made to feel guilty for being poorly. If I had the choice of course I wouldn't be poorly and I wouldn't suffer mental health issues which is the worst feeling in the world, I want to feel like a normal human but then I work with people like this and its making me feel worse. I have once suffered from a suicide attempt a year ago and that's how bad it got and that's how bad my mental illness can be, they know this as I have told them I go to councelling sessions once a week, yet I get treat like this. I am currently on my day off and I don't want to go back tomorrow and I don't want to give any notice, I just want to quit. I know my mental illness and my overall illness is more important than any job, but a job is a job. I couldn't change my hospital appointments either, because I have been on a waiting list so it would have taken longer for it to get resolved and my health will have been affected more. I don't deserve to be treated this way. What would happen if I took a letter in tomorrow to quit and not go back? Its badly affecting my mental health and I cant explain it too anyone who doesn't understand. Sorry its so long, thanks for reading x

Talk it through with your counsellor and come up with a plan of what else you can apply for.
If you can afford to leave with no future job then do if you are totally sure you can afford it.

What about working from home? If you want some income no boss no worries if you feel to poorly to do a day. I work from home and love it. No stress, no one to tell you what to do. I suffer from depression and the best thing I ever did
