"Surviving" at work can be a difficult task for many of us, and one that I'm grateful was suggested by our members for the Thought-Stirring Question this week.

Discussion of workplace issues as related to abuse history; fear of losing employment; unsympathetic bosses and/or colleagues; pressure to perform well; the risk of disclosure; *surviving* while at work. Collapse )


1. Which 2-3 areas of your job are most affected by your abuse history? What aspects of your abuse history make these areas difficult for you?

2. What would your workplace "toolbox" look like? What kinds of coping methods from your private life could you successfully apply to the areas of your job that you listed above?

3. How could you incorporate self-care at work? What sorts of small things could you institute to balance out the stress at your job?

 This is from my journal. Work is really getting to me. I'm a tae kwon do instrctor, and one of the head instructors that run the school. I've just been stressed and sort of emotional in general, but work definitely isn't helping.

As of right now.... I love the people I get to see at work, I love class, Mr L isn't my biggest fan, and I'm not enjoying work AT ALL.

Srsly, I do. I walked into work last night, and as I was turning in my keys, Mick pulled me over and was all like, "So, you're pressing charges against {insert name here}?"

"Yeah. Why?"

"Because you can't work in that house any more. Effective immediately, you're in {other house}."


[later that night, I asked him how he knew, and why it was so sudden. He said that someone from the police called and said I wasn't allowed to be in the same house as He is. Whoever that was, I owe them. Big time.]
