Feeling tearful, tired and frustrated

Just a bit of a weepy evening. I'm tired because my "work" load is a bit bigger than normal. I don't work, I do voluntary work and I really enjoy it because it makes a big difference to my community and I'm good at and I get a load of support from the men I work with (hardly any women in their job at the level I work). Someone senior has upset me and I have no comeback against him (it's a bit like trying to sue God), another person in a similar field (who I see at committee meetings all the time) is bullying me in a subtle way and, even though I've discussed it with the a guy who work with who I'm really close to I'm still finding it hard - the effect goes beyond me and into the community so it's really stupid of this bully. I went over to see someone earlier and it's - here's a problem will you sort it out. I'm thinking does anyone one actually see a person when they look at me or just this incredibly efficient fix it machine? I've gone past angry and I just want to eat chocolate and sleep.

Why do some people need to push .......... you are a person and they need to know it .
I used to do voluntary work , loved it until they expected me to take on more . It got to a point where i asked the committee to point out where it said " mug " on my forehead!!
Please make them aware your not well and you do all you can do and give 100% that you don't need anymore for the time being .
:hug:

Thanks for the kind words and the lovely flowers. They do know that I'm not well and my "peers" are the kindest group that you could wish to meet. I regularly get hugs and when I ring up in tears it's all I can do to stop drowning in love but the bosses are a bit hard-headed. I've been treated in this particular way at the moment because it's how they treat the paid staff and it's a huge compliment in a way because it means they see me as part of the team. I'll be alright once I've had some sleep and got to be sarcastic with the boys. I am so glad that this forum is here. xx

I am reminded of a song from the musical 'Chicago'. 'Mr window pane, no-one knows my name, and no-one knows I'm there' It's how I felt for a very long time. The film version of this is superb.

I also like the musical Les Miserables with its opening No.'Look Down'. This is very appropriate if looked at from an MH point of view

Hi FedUp - thanks for asking. I've had a good nights sleep. My smallest girl cat came in to bed with me and purred me to sleep. I ate chocolate. I let go of all the mess and I feel much better this morning. It's so good to be able to talk about stuff. I have to email some people today but I'm going to take time out to talk to someone I love and if I can meet up with someone then I will. Thanks for being there - you really did make a difference. xxx(y)
