Just found out that my husband has take to enforced leave over Christmas because his company is quiet then.
Guess when my company isn’t?
I had suspected this might happen so approached mine yesterday only to be told that it was out of the question for me to take leave as four others had already put in for it.
I’ve been working for that company for five years. I have done five festive seasons. I am not doing a sixth.
Ever since scary incident about six weeks ago (which I did not write about here), I have been feeling very traumatised about work. I keep waiting for somebody to attack me. It is a horrible way to make a living.
I am telling my office this week that I am leaving. I haven’t even got anything else to go to but it is affecting my mental health and the thought that I will have to work more, not less, over the time of the year that freaks me out the most, is giving me nightmares.
My husband agrees, thank God.
