Work related stress – Video interviews – Janine’s story


I don’t know what’s wrong with me at the moment. I used to be really good at my job and I loved it but lately I just sort of feel like I can’t cope. I mean I’ve missed a few deadlines and my staff, you know my team I keep snapping at them and the other day I had to go into my office and have a cry after dealing with a difficult customer. I mean that’s not like me. I guess I’m just really wound up and there’s a new lot at head office and and they’re just changing everything. Even the things that worked really well and on top of that the targets are just
really difficult to meet. I’m getting to the point where I just feel like I’ve got so much work I don’t know where to start and its really affecting my home life. I mean when I’m at home I’m just thinking about problems at work all the time and I’m drinking more than I ever did before on a night. it’s the only thing that helps me to relax. I mean I know its not healthy but I haven’t got the time or the energy to do anything about it really. I’ve got a week booked off next month so you know maybe that will help but at the moment mainly I’m just thinking about all the work that I’ve got to get done before I go. You know I don’t know how I got in this situation. I’m not really sure what to do next.
