Feel like I'm going to get sacked... Watch

I started a new job in July, I had my probation extended because I had two sickness days. Long story short, one of those days I was physically unwell, the second day was mental health related. N.B. My employer is aware of my mental health issues - as declared to occupational health.

Basically for the last 2 weeks or so my stats have majorly slipped. I work in an Office, and everything is logged and monitored. Our call times, wrap times, email to call ratio, break times, punctuality.

There are, I feel, a few reasons for this:

1. My confidence has seriously taken a nose dive, and seemingly I've gone backwards because of a hygiene issue that has got out of hand. Which makes me self conscious to talk to people.

2. Its been that busy that I've been unable to ask for help, if I don't understand something, and I feel like I'm hassling people if I do.

Because of 1 and 2 collectively, I'm unable to ask for help, which makes me feel rubbish which further decreases my confidence and self esteem.

This alongside my guilt, because my wrap times are horrendous and all the above, makes me feel I will be getting axed at the end of this month.

I have started to get up and ask more people for help, which is good, but I feel like I take 2 steps forward and 3 back lately.

Basically my casework and emails are building more and more, and I have ones in my area that are like nearly 14 days old, because every time I try to clear them, or do them, I get a phone call, and as soon as you take 2-3 away 6 appear. We are expected to do emails between calls, and its really stressing me out.

My stress levels and confidence is all over the place at the moment. Its stressful, but a different type of stress to my last job.

I'm kinda more left to my own devices in an office. But sort of expected to get on with it at same time.

I feel like i'm been avoided at work too, and people do not socialise with me at all.

I'm having less and less catch up meetings, and some key meetings to enable me to improve on things have not happened.

What can I do?

Stop with all the negative thoughts, mindset and actions. Does you no good.

Assess your workload and id all the things you need to put right.

Prioritise the important things that need attention and the small things that can be handled quickly.

ID what you need to do and have a plan.

Discuss the situation with your manager and the steps you will take to put them right.

Stay behind or come in at the weekend to catch up.

Give your manager a progress report.


also if things are as bad as you say then work on an emergency plan where things dont work out plus what you will do. If it happens its less of a shock.

I had this job where I worked for about 7 months. ONE TIME I took a day off and I gave three weeks notice and found someone to cover me. They got p*ssed off it wasn’t 4 weeks notice and said I’d be likely to get a disciplinary. And a few days later they pulled me aside to say I’m not working hard enough even though I was the only one on my department for 8 hours. So I quit coz I had a feeling I was gonna get fired 😂
