hello, I have been off sick from work for a couple of months with anxiety and depression - I returned to work this morning, after getting used to mirtazapine and some therapy, CBT relaxation work etc. I was almost immediately called into a meeting with 2 managers, it went on an on, supposedly to run through a risk assessment which actually was just them saying what they couldn't do anything about - and the areas where they could, they already do it for everyone - after 2 and a half hours one manager decided she should now to tell me off about some petty issue dating back to January, quite unfairly. When I stood up for myself (very politely in the circumstances) she raised her voice and said in a sort of silly psychotic voice "I will be heard..." so I said that this behaviour was wholly unacceptable and I walked out. I am now right back where I was several weeks ago, with a tight anxiety ridden chest, a stomach like lead, a head that hurts, all my muscles hurt and I have absolutely no hope that I can go to work without some personal attack being made in the future- and it is not the first time either, though the first time it has happened on my first day back at work. I worked really hard just to walk through the door this morning and I truly wish I had not got out of bed.
