A letter from the Company Director to the rest of us following MIND training.
My management seem to forget that when I'm dancing to the radio or joking about some insignificant shit, I still have depression, OCD, PTSD & Anxiety disorder.
A poem on my day: Today, my "mood bought down the vibe in the team". My manager told me so.
My commute adds up to an extra day of work which is exhausting.
What gives people the right, to look down on others from their pedestal and mock, tease and judge?
For a long time I felt shit that I couldn't appease these rather selfish, ignorant people but then, I see in my friends the person I want to be.
Being able to cry and vent without being deemed weak or irrational is a relief. Personally, I can't wait for the vocabulary to change in the workplace.
Over the last 12 months I have heard various 'commentary' regarding my health.
The waves are coming in, you're going against the tide. And that's how I know I'll be fine.
"Cheer up" which is normally followed by "just put a smile on your face" and of course, my favourite, "you need to toughen up".
