It's been coming to 3 years since my last blog post.
And the reason why I'm back, is not a good one.
I feel I've been bullied at work.
Who can I talk to ?
I tried talking to the husband. It doesn't help.
What else can he say? I am needed to bring the bread while he brings the butter home. There is absolutely nothing he can say to make me feel better. And of course he can never understand my working environment. And all he can say is for me to take it easy.
IT'S EASIER SAID THAN DONE.
Here is the situation.
I have 4 months worth of Maternity Leave.
I took 2 consecutive months according to the law.
I came back few weeks earlier because my colleague is leaving, I am needed to share the load. So I came back without hesitating.
I have a remaining 2 months of maternity leave, on top of that, 14 days of annual leave and 6 days of childcare leave totaling 60 days to clear by Jan 2018.
I came up with a proposal to minimize work disruption, of having to cut short my working hours by 2 hours a day and deduct 1 working day's worth of leave a week. The initial 2 weeks was good. There comes the 3rd, when my colleague left. All the work starts piling until now.
I CAN'T COPE. But no one is listening to me.
I've been doing over-time, more over times that I did for the past 2 years. It made me so sick.
I'm suppose to knock off at 3pm. Okay nevermind. Then my usual 5pm. NO! Some days I work until 8pm. WHAT? Yes, 12 hours in the office. At the end of the day, what do I get?
Many times I reach home without seeing my baby. I leave home at 7am, and come back when she's asleep. What to do?
