I’ve been open about my struggles on here. Because I want other people to feel less alone. But for those of you like me, don’t tell your employer.
Hide it, and make them mind their own business. I regret my candor. If I had a time machine I’d go back and warn myself. Now HR is involved.
The division manager knows I cut, and I’m getting in trouble for a late doctors note. It’s obvious to see, that they are trying to get rid of me. It makes me cry.
I went to my boss because I trusted her. She threw be under the bus. Too worried about her own position, to really care about me.
I emailed the governor, desperate for help. Forced to take leave, then threatened cause I took longer than they hoped. How dare they treat me this way. I am boiling with rage.
I just want to do my job. To be a good employee. Pretty sad that I’d prefer a transfer to DMV.
Debating about a go fund me. Or trying to get media attention. Would anyone care? This isn’t right. This is why people with mental illness hide it. I certainly wish I had.
I didn’t say, when they yelled at me over a political difference. I didn’t say, when I caught my coworker coming out of the bar.
I didn’t say, the many things I’ve seen, because I supported my team. But they haven’t supported me.
I wish this wasn’t the world we lived in. That other people cared. But they only look out for themselves. If you are like me, you shouldn’t have to hide, but I recommend you do.
Oh if I had a time machine. I’d go back, keep my mouth shut, and just continue to cut.
