    Take the painkillers if you need to...
    Today I aim to be the best person I can be.
    That mean that yesterday or tomorrow I might be a better person,
    but today's best is more than good enough for today.

    What’s wrong with your teeth?
    Sometimes the best thing you can do is not think, not wonder, not imagine, not obsess. Just breathe and have faith that everything will work out for the best.

    I went to the dentist last week for the first time in 5 years and he says I've got 2 teeth so rotten down they need removing by a specialist and 2 more in bad need of a filling. Only I'm terrified of tools being in my mouth. Even mirrors and those scraping tools make me feel uncomfortable, but the tools needed for an extraction or filling are more than I can handle.

    I've asked about the cost of sedation, but the dentist doesn't know as it's only offered by the specialist.

    My teeth are in a horrific state. I take medication just to get into the room so I appreciate that. You can be fully sedated for dental treatment - I checked that last time I was there.

    I put on a brave face for my friends' last day while they were there. As soon as they were out of the building I ran for the nearest toilet and locked myself in until I stopped crying. After that I went back to my office and cried at my desk. Nobody passing my office seemed to notice, thankfully.

    I don't know what Monday's going to be like for me. I'm just trying to get through the weekend without thinking about it.

    It seems a very extreme reaction to someone leaving... I really think you need to make your Dr understand exactly how much this has affected you and I think you need some proper help as you seem to be struggling so much with things atm.

    I don't know how to explain how my friends made me feel at peace with myself. But without them I can't justify my presence beyond trying to keep a roof over my family's heads.

    One of them used to arrive early and greet me at reception most mornings, but she's gone now. Just walking into the building was enough to reduce me to tears today.

    Keeping a roof over your family’s heads is a pretty good justification for your presence there....

    Paula's right. If you can't carry on there then you'll have to focus on getting a new job. But keeping a roof over your family has to be a good enough reason to continue until you get a new job surely?
    Any news on another Drs appointment? Maybe you could do bullet point lists and hand them over?

    The appointment's still set for Thursday.

    I had an email from a support group who had planned to meet me at work to assess what support I need, but I must have missed some details out because they wanted to meet at out head office right at the end of my working day. This presents a problem because I don't own a car and I haven't been to head office before, so I'd take a very long time to get there by public transport.

    But I am writing a list of symptoms and my coping strategies to give to my doctor on Thursday, so that should help.
    Before that, I have another meeting with representatives from head office on Wednesday to remind me how bad a job I'm doing. I've no idea how I've been here so long if I'm so bad at my job. But they're the managers and they must have more expertise than me to get that title, so it must be true.
