I’m struggling with the pressure of life at the moment. I have been on antidepressants for nearly 10 years, gone through numerous hours of counselling, psychotherapy, was even admitted to a psychiatric hospital, but and every now and again, the pressure gets hold of me and turns me into and emotional mess that can not cope with even the simplest of daily tasks.
At the moment in particular, I’m really struggling with my day to day job. Like most people, I really struggle with stress, however my stress creates somebody that can no longer function or think rationally. Sometimes, when I’m driving to work, I forget where I am. Quite often, I forget how to do my job, the job that I have managed to succeed in for so many years. I know that this is all stress related, and down to my job. I work in an industry which is diminishing rapidly and margins are getting tighter and tighter. My employer isn’t very supportive, they have always seen staff as replaceable with no value at all, and I fear that my time with my current employer may be coming to and end very soon, as I’m unable to do my job to an acceptable standard.
I have a wife and young child, and need to keep strong for them, however this pressure is pushing me to breaking point, and mentally I don’t want to revisit some of the places I have been in previous years.
I’m asking for a donations to enable me to leave my current employment, to allow me a short amount of time which will enable me to focus on getting back in the right ‘headspace’, finding new employment or making plans for taking a new career path altogether. I could use that time to learn a new skill, or educate myself in a new industry/trade altogether. The prospect of that is exciting, however not something I can even entertain in my current frame of mind.
The donations would be used in their entirety to keep up with our regular monthly payments including mortgage, electric, water and childcare costs, during a short period of time when I will no longer be bringing in an income.
I have never done anything like this before, and certainly never asked for financial help, but I really appreciate the time you have taken in reading this.
Sorry I forgot to add my PayPal.me
If making a donation, please remember to leave me a contact email address within the notes/comments, so that I can keep you up to date with how things plan out for me.
