Relief

I apologize for disappearing for so long, but my job took over and would not let go. It consumed every part of my life - so much so that my family was worried about me. I would have panic attacks on the way home. I would stay up most of the night on weekends just to stretch the time out longer.... thinking about Mondays would make me nauseous.

My boss was a nightmare. A tee-total beeotch. If I didn't do things HER way then it was completely wrong. Yes, I can take the blame for some things I was accused of, but instead of berating me and making feel like a dumb-ass, why couldn't she COACH? Or LEAD? Oh so much I could tell, but I won't. I don't want the chance for someone to stumble across this blog. Just know... she was the ab-so-lute worst boss I have EVER had.... the worst.

But good does come out of bad. I got another job. I started looking within two months of starting... yes, I knew that soon.

I am going back to the company I left, but on a new team and with a new boss. I have known my new boss for the past 4 years and really, really like him. I mean, hell, how can you not like a guy that is an Elvis impersonator?? HUH???

He has a sense of humor and understands mine. He worked his tail off to get me on his team. I will take what I learned from my job-from-hell and apply it to this one. I think it will help me tremendously.

I am sooooo relieved to be gone. I cannot begin to tell you the nightmare the past 7 months have been. I am taking the next couple of weeks to heal my self-esteem, my heart, and my confidence. All of it is battered and bruised.

My family has been so supportive and loving. During the worst of times they consoled, encouraged, and loved me... I am such a lucky girl!

So onward and upward! Maybe I can be "myself" again and get back to this blog. I miss you all so very much (if anyone still reads that is!)

Hugs... and thank you for your patience.

Wow - we had no idea. [I have a phone, remember? heehee] I wish I had known - it sounds horrible and I wish I could've helped.

Glad you can go back - that is amazing! And wonderful!

What a relief. Take care of you and we'll chat soon, I am sure.

your boss sounds like mine. if i could have put the last 7-8 months of my life into words, it would say practically the same things. jobs are scarce around here though so i continue to suck it up and go. i'm expecting to be let go soon though. since they haven't driven me to quit, they've started a new tactic... writing everything down, every "crime" i commit. it's sad.

I feel you, Teresa. Sounds just like what I was going thru. I was on a 30 day performance plan because I didn't know Excel and I showed my emotions to a client... not crying or anything... just, bascially, told them I didn't agree.

I had another two weeks or so before they were going to let me go.

I hope you can find something soon. I'll be thinking about you and sending good vibes. Hugs!

Congrats on the new job. I'm so happy to hear that you're done with the turmoil & can now get back to being yourself again! :-)
