Bad Bad Attitude
Is this an excuse or what can I do to change myself? Finished treatment for cancer 3 months ago and battled with memory and concentration at works which seems to be coming right BUT my boss (just two of us in agency) has lost a contract and so basically can't afford me and has taken on other work which I will do but also cut my salary by R4,000 p.m. Since then I am just so switched off and find I am impatient irritable and just plain bad attitude and each day I say I will try and not be like that. I suppose it is up to me to accept changes or not but I cannot get out of this rift. Any suggestions besides being thankful that I have a job but I just don't like being used - I make coffee, do shopping, pay his personal accounts, do all his personal work and run the business for him. He likes to come in at 10am and leave at 3pm. Suppose if you own a buisness that it how it works. I am sure you are all going to bomb on me

Counselling ? Like Garfuield, I think it sounds unfair ( I bet boss didn't take any salary cut ? ) Why not call CCMA and Dept of Labour and check out your rights.
