The cracks are starting to show

I am ok but one of my colleagues isn't. She just couldn't cope today and I ended up rescuing her for the third time this term. After that she went home and I don't know if she is coming back or not. Tomorrow I am taking over her class for the day..mmm, we shall see how that goes.
We are not getting much support from the people with the money and it was too much for her. It will be a long day tomorrow and I shall have to plan four lessons for the class tomorrow...better go and do that then!

Thought of the day:
Ask for help BEFORE things get too much...and if you need help then please ask for it. It isn't dangerous and it may just save your health.
Don’t let the crack get you too, I know how it is to work with very little support and how difficult it is to ask for help. Definitely not my strongpoint. Looks after yourself and good luck tomorrow.

@jacqbb thank you! Even if I do look after everyone else I really try and make sure that I look after myself first.

It's nice of you to help out. asking for help isn't often easy, but one should never let it get to a point of no return. Good luck tomorrow.

@bruni thank you, I shall take you all with me to keep me sane...hahaha

I started to upload my Christmas decorations. you wanted to see some. more to follow.

Well done and wishing you all the best for tomorrow. And that thought is spot on. People are too afraid of looking weak but strength lies in knowing when to delegate and get help.

Bless both of you! It's not easy to ask for help, but there comes a time... AND, it's surprising how much people DO want to help if they can when they know it's badly needed. You're a good Samaritan!

Oh dear not only you feeling the strain then...something is seriously wrong if it’s bringing people to such that they feel helpless. Not easy working in an environment that has no support but it’s so common everywhere these days...people should be happy in their work, hard to keep going & putting a happy front on. You are a good soul especially when you have felt the same too...you will know exactly how she feels...hope there are changes soon.

@bruni YEAH! Thank you!
@casablanca so very very true
@Weezilou just hope someone does the same for me should I ever need it!
@happypat we get all the support we need from our immediate boss...but his bosses just don't care about us

Hope you manage, my daughter has just got a new job because the system is broken, she was taking classes yet was an assistant, just no money and so much stress, not good.

@yrhenwr it is indeed...but some of us HAVE to keep smiling so we can keep the boat afloat! Thanks for the Fav :-)

Love the words and so true. But I know we don’t. I am sure if I had asked a while ago things would may have been different.
December 5th, 2018  
Oh dear, please look after yourself.
