I pretty much had a breakdown at work and had to come home. I spoke with the manager, they were very understanding. See, I work long night shifts and have been for the past two weeks or so. But tonight I just felt emotionally drained, depressed, customers treating me like dirt. So I spoke to my manager and a guy I work with, both were really understanding. The guy I work with said he's been through the same thing, told me to take a couple of nights off, speak to my brother and come back in another night. It sounds sad to say this but I was literally on the verge of tears. I'll have a talk with my brother about it, he told me that my mum would be proud of me for working. I know it sounds like such a simple thing, but for me to be working it's a huge achievement. Like a major step in the right direction in my life. I'll most likely be back in Friday night, then Christmas eve.
The guy I worked with gave me a comforting hand on the shoulder, told me that three years ago when he started work there, he went through the exact same thing. He's a great guy. I don't have an aversion to work, I want to work, I enjoy working there and I don't want to let anyone down, just that night was rough for me.
