Hey everyone, how are you?
My anxiety is sky high again, as I deal with other people’s incompetence.
I’ve mentioned in the last week that I have had to deal with a Government department, send them some evidence and fill in some forms. Well, it looks like that the postal service has managed to lose these documents and if I don’t get them to the Government office by Friday, then I could be sanctioned. It is stressing me out to the maximum and is really effecting my mental health. Over the weekend I got really stressed as there was nothing I could do, because the Government department wasn’t open. But yesterday morning I called them and they confirmed that the documents had not been delivered. It has been over a week now since I posted it. All of this is making me physically and mentally unwell and I just want it sorted.
I spoke to mental health practitioners yesterday and they suggested that I call the department again and see if I can email it to them or get the form emailed to me so I can print it off, fill it in and then send it back. I was so exhausted by all of this that I crashed out asleep for three hours yesterday afternoon, waking up in the evening. I did not speak to the mental health professionals until late lunch time, as I had a meeting and phone calls in the morning. So, that is going to be today’s job, as well as my counselling. But right now I just want this whole saga to end. It’s making me so unwell, to the point that I am too anxious to eat.
I really don’t know what else I can do, the worst time is in the evening when everything is shut and I am alone with my own thoughts. Because I have to wait until the next day until I can ring anyone and get a status update on what is going on with it all. Thankfully so far, the Government department is being understanding about it and have put a note on a file, but the risk of getting sanctioned by them is still high and it is the biggest fear I have out of all of this. And that is what is feeding the anxiety the most. I wish that people could just do their job properly and let the system run smoothly. As this is not the first time that I have had problems with the postal service delivering to this particular Government department. It is so infuriating.
Thank you for reading and I hope that you have a good day.
