Despute at work
Doc,

My apologies for the short and weird message earlier on. Basically, I was expected to get involve in a process at work without any prior notification. (99.9 scenario)That in itself added to my current level of stress.

To shorten a long story, I now feel used by the workplace as well (Work load) and have not managed to speak to any professional today (Psychiatrist, doctor etc.) Just been to involved (Time now 16:25). One rush upon another, I need to dash out of here, hit the traffic, with the dreadful thought that I could not do anything to change my state of mind. Instead the thoughts are all back and stronger than before.

I just don't have the strenght anymore, I am trying Doc, but maybe this is not good enough...

Thanks for your time anyway...

Hi Lonestar,
You DO have the strength to see this through, beyond any doubt, but you DON"T HAVE TO DO IT ALONE. You need help to break out of this persistently negative frame of mind in which you interpret everything in the most negaive and pessimistic way. Maybe you are being used by your workplace--- many of us are. But we bide our time, protect and enhance our health, and gradually work to reduce our degree of exploitation and improve our independence and freedom.
I may be tied up tomorrow --- let's hear from you soon, and I'll espond to peple's messages again on Thursday.
