Walking away for my mental health
Saturday, October 26, 2019
Have not been on SparkPeople for the last 6 years of working in a community services group while also spending night classes to achieve a Diploma of Human Resources, a Diploma of Accounting, and a Certificate for Training and Assessment. Two of my last 3 SparkPeople blogs reflect how happy I had been at my job when it was new.
Unfortunately my emerging business skills were not appreciated or encouraged in my job. Without getting into details, I feel there is one person in particular who has made what was once a dream job turn more into a nightmare since 2015. After numerous disagreements, an accumulated gain of 40lbs (then the more recent lost of 25lbs) plus the last 9 months of my eye twitching uncontrollably, I have given formal HR notice to take all of my leave with a resignation date at the end. Yesterday I cleaned out my desk and handed in my security card.
While I look for another job, I am volunteering for an inspiring training project that teams young dogs with young teens to help build their kindness and confidence (both in the dogs and the boys).
I asked my doctor if she could refer me to a dietitian as I want to be in control of something during this uncertain time in my life. Maybe a Spark streak will bring me positive dreams again.
