Stress at work


#1

Hi

I really need some advice and help please.  I am finding it difficult at work and my boss has blocked my Occupational Health referral twice over the last year, for a medical assessment to guide us both on what I should and shouldnt be expected to do at work. I have a stressful job and finally she has agreed to the referral but has told me it will take a few weeks for the initial assessment. This week I was asked to cover another job which is well known to be a very stressful role. I asked for support the night before and was assured this would be put in place. I was left from 9am to 14.00 with no direct support from my manager. By this time I had also taken on another job as we were so busy. I have a tremor in my arm and leg and the extreme stress I was under caused me to start shaking badly, I couldnt concentrate and slowed down without being able to do anything about it. The customers started noticing and I sent 2 messages to ask for help, saying I wasnt too good. No-one came to help me. This message appears on all the computers in the office and my manager denied seeing them. I  eventually had to leave all I was doing as I was so unwell. My colleagues were appalled by the treatment I received. I want to carry on doing my job, but my boss is making it so difficult for me. I have had several meetings with her, given her information from this website to help her understand my illness. Any ideas how I can stop her being like this towards me? I hope no-one else has experienced this, but if you have your help would be gratefully received.

I think the technical term is "bullying" for what you are having to put up with .  Please ring the PD UK helpline

above.  They have staff with specialist knowledge in medical, workplace and wellfare matters.
