I am currently employed full-time. I LOVE that I can say that but I really can't take my job anymore. I am a single parent and this job is not accomodating. My responsibilitie s have changed completely and I was forced into this new position or I would be fired for misconduct. Since my new "promotion" I have been so stressed out from this job that I have been waking up at 3am every morning with anxiety attacks and throwing up. I've been sick for almost 2 months. I have tried for over 6 months to get an extra day a week off to care for the things that I have to do around the house and for my child and they refuse to let me work 32 hours a week. Also, I have been trying to work Mon-Fri for a year and they wont allow that either, even though others have the weekends off. It's INCREDIBLY hard to find child-care on the weekends that doesn't COST my check. What are my options? I have been looking for other jobs for 2 months now but haven't found one yet that I can get to (I don't have a car) I have been trying to stay here as long as I can to get enough money for a car so I can expand my search but I dont know how much more I can take. I have already missed 2 weeks of work this month because every time I start to feel better I spend 40 hours here and am so frenzied and stressed and miserable I get physically ill again. I have tried everything, I tried pretending I love it, I've even tried anti-depressants to see if it was just me... it's not me. WHAT ARE MY OPTIONS? At this point it would be cheaper to work a job that pays less. If I quit this job would I be able to collect? I heard you can't collect if you quit but then I heard you CAN if it is detrimental to your health (which it obviously is) and it makes a pre-existing condition worse (which it has been doing and my doctor is aware of) but you have to prove it... how do I prove that? For now I keep looking but I really don't know how much longer I can take this and I'm afraid I'm going to SNAP and get fired for something ridiculous and then be screwed. Any advice would be helpful.
