Hi, I'm new to this just wanted some advice.
I'm currently 17 weeks pregnant, I've been working in my curent job for 13 months and not enjoyed it for a long time.
I work in a care home as a cleaner which in itself is a very demanding stressful job doing a 2 man job as we are understaffed and have been since I started.
At first I enjoyed it but as months passed I've heard members of my team speaking about me behind my back which has made it very difficult for me to work with them. I've caught them on 3 different occasions but let it pass as I didn't want to cause any more stress than the job actually was (I get on with it and go home).
In the first few months I also felt like my manager was targeting me... watching my every move and pulling me up about anything and everything which made me dislike the job even more.
My relationship with my best friend has recently broken down and she also works within the care home. She has recently gone behind my back to my manager about a matter and it's all getting to me now.
Due to the stress and the situations at work I have come home on numerous occasions crying to my partner and snapping at him and my 6 year old daughter which I hate!! I go to bed stressed and wake up stressed with work still on my mind. My home life has changed and all that is on my mind is the dread of going to work. I'm not as happy as I used to be and I'm worried it's effecting my baby's health.
I've recently had 5 weeks off work (3 weeks on sick due to pregnancy) and 2 week holidays. I'm due back tomorrow and I'm absolutely dreading and fearing it. My oh has just rung me and I broke down crying to him. I feel like handing my notice in but I feel trapped. I've tried to put the gossiping behind me but knowing I have to go and face these people is getting too much for me to handle. All I am doing is crying and I can't cope with it anymore. The 5 weeks I've had off all that has been on my mind is the thought of returning to work and it's really getting me down.
I need some advice as to what to do I'm going out of my mind :'(
Any help would be much appreciated.
