Dear sodding Diary: schools, stress and migraines

6th November 2018       I have neglected you, dear sodding diary, for a while now – it’s been a busy few weeks with lots going on. The biggest change being that I’ve changed job – it’s a very long story and not one for the public eye but I was sort of forced to leave my previous job and I’ve luckily found another quickly.  It’s going really well, it’s totally different to what I’ve done before so all is now well. Unfortunately my anxiety has other ideas – a combination of stress and anxiety has made me feel pretty low and rubbish and so my first week in my new job has been really tough. Why?  I don’t seem to have any confidence at all in myself – I’m fighting a daily battle with my head, which is telling me I’m rubbish and that I can’t do the job.  I’m doing the job, I’m picking it up quite well, however that inner voice is there every bloody second of the day telling me I’m not good enough. I think the anxiety is exaserbated by the Mirena coil I had fitted four weeks ago when I had my laparoscopy…
