Hi! I am not working now, but I do admit I have quite a problem with my temper on the job! I really try to be kind and treat people right, but let me refresh you on what I have endured: When I was a child, I was molested and heavily controlled by my father. As I grew older, my sisters were both raped(by my father) and I had to help raise my half-sister, half niece.(Born out of incest!)
I was always terrified of being raped by my father(who is now in prison-thank God!) I was never raped by him but I avoid all physical contact with men, even though I am naturally physically attracted to men(I am a woman!) I am very scared of being raped( I dont date men!). I am also weirded out by the idea of any man trying to seduce me! (Many have tried, I just take off!)
When I feel like I cant take any more "guff" or mistreatment off of a coworker, or ever a manager, I literally explode! I am taking medication which helps, but I get this feeling like someone is literally trying to control me or take me over, and I get really upset!
My mom can stay at her job a long time because she doesnt have any mental illnesses, but I cant seem to control my emotions to funcion "properly" in a workplace?
Does this seem like Post-traumatic stress disorder?
I have also broken down and cried a lot on the job(every jog).
I am very sensitive to people trying to control me. I can only take so much off someone and after that I just totally flip out!
Are there a lot of people like this?
I am reading a book on Boundaries which helps a lot!
Please share your thoughts on this!

It sounds like you are going through alot. I am sorry for you but think maybe you should seek therapy like maybe a group for sexual abuse. Trying to relate to others may infact help you to understand just what makes you tick and what your triggers may be. I go to a group myself for crimainal sexual assualt. It helps to talk to people who have gone through what I have. Good luck

It is hard to be happy if your nervous system is mostly in "survival mode." It can feel like most of your life is just waiting for something bad to happen. Is going to the gym a hobby for you? That can help a lot with anxiety and even socialization since a gym is a social environment -- even without talking to others. It is, unfortunately, often an expensive process to find the right therapist. Some therapists are much better than others, including when it comes to "fit" or matching...

I don?t know how useful legal aid would be. Medical input is more critical I think. Start by taking the forms to your doctor. Posted using Tapatalk

What I Would Do Differently If I Were Diagnosed With Depression Today by Therese Borchard April 17, 2017 Someone in recovery circles once told me that if you have one foot in the past and another in the future, you are essentially peeing on the present. I try to remember that when I?m engulfed in regret?obsessing about all the things I did wrong in the past and wishing to God I had made different decisions. However, writing about my mistakes has always been healing for me because I?d...
