Today I stumbled across this page, and it has literally changed my life after I read the post about being in a toxic work environment.
I am getting retrenched and the end of the month, but was offered a job at a sister company. Stuck with what felt like a crossroad on a busy intersection, I honestly did not know what to do!
I have been hospitalised previously because of a mental breakdown with just the plain fear of us being taken over by that company.
So here I was, I need the money, I cannot afford to be without work because I run a rescue centre. But just the feel of dread thinking about taking the job WITH a salary cut was just horrific.
The abuse from the sister company has already started - even before I have left my current job. I am getting told off and warned for certain things that I am posting on my private Facebook page - every aspect of my life is being censored and I am being spied on.
I suffer from Bipolar disorder, and i need structure in my life, so I have been working for this company since 2007 because I am too scared of change.
Today I took a massive leap - and I am praying that I land on my feet. BUT I know that I would do so much better mentally.
Thank you for what you do, and helping people like me.
