Post of The Month

Esme17 is our Post of The Month winner voted by the community for the following post:

"Hey. Hope you are doing okay?

I completely understand what you mean about feeling low mainly at night. like you said, It is probably because you have nothing else you need to be doing then and so have more time to think. Is there anything you could do that makes you feel slightly happier during this time (watch a film, read etc..)?

Do you know what is making you feel this way? I know you mentioned losing your nan which must have been really hard for you and Iím very sorry to hear that!

Iím not too sure what would be best for you to do in the situation but i would say it would be best to speak to someone like your gp because they could tell you for sure if it does need looking into more and even if it didnít, it would put your mind at rest a bit? I know how hard it can be seeing someone though so just make sure you do what feels right for you.

Remember you can also always come to the board to get support and to chats as well.

Let us know how things go? Iím sorry if this didnít help at all, I think I rambled a bit but I tried...

  • New Job- Feel they are taking advantage of me

    So as you may know I started my new job on the 13th of July in a nursery and ive started to feel that they are taking advantage of me considering I'm still on my trial, this is because they always make me do the cleaning and I don't have a choice and therefore I don't spend much time with the children which is what I had in my mind when I applied for the job. I understand cleaning needs to be done but I always feel its me that is doing it. it got to a stage when even though ive only just started I dotn want to go to work for the rest of this week as I need to speak to the manager who wont be back till next Tuesday. how can I stop myself feeling like this?

    Hey Laura

    Have you spoke to your manager yet?

    I think you if you feel like you're being taken advantage of it always good to read what your job description actually says for you to be doing And question it to them? and then if they keep telling you to do cleaning, maybe question if it is a job you want cause know how horrible it can feel to dread your week at work Hope it works out

    Take care

      Hi Shaunie. I haven't spoken to a manager about this as since I wrote the post I have been given time with the children and they are sharing out the cleaning between the staff better so its much better at work right now. if things get back to how it was before then I will say something but things are okay right now.

        Hi Laura,

        ​That's great to hear about your work situation improving. I have been in your position previously and have felt similar feelings in regards to delegation of tasks. I have personally found having an open and honest line of communication with my manager meant that we could work together to improve the work environment so don't be afraid to speak up and let your manager know how you are feeling - and this applies to anything you may be unhappy with. Alternatively, you could always ask for support from other employees or suggest a 'cleaning rota' so that workload is fairly shared.
