Hi. I would really like some advice here.
I work in a lawyer’s office and I have responsibility for over 200 cases.
My job has become very very stressful to the point that it causes me to have disturbed sleep, or I wake up early in the morning and can’t get back to sleep.
I also cannot enjoy the weekend as I constantly worry about issues which cannot be resolved until Monday morning. I just woke up there terrified about something that needs to be done, but i cant get into the office until Monday. It would only take 2 minutes to check it out, but because its the weekend…
I am constantly in stress and it dominates my life at the moment. Sometimes, work is enjoyable and I’m ok, but too often there are things to worry about, and so much to do. There is so much post every day to deal with, so many cases to deal with and already for Monday, I have too much to think about.
I’m really scared at how little I enjoy life at the moment and I find it difficult to focus on God (which I want to very much) because I am so worried about work.
I have devised a new schedule for dealing with the post - to put the day’s post in a folder and tick it with a pencil, when addressed - that way I know its done.
I also have a meeting with one of the Partners to discuss my progress so far, and I think I will have to talk about the amount of work.
Do you have any advice? I’m just scared I guess by what I have to do.
