I am officially out of work. I am yet another statistic.
I found out today that I am being ‘let go’. I still have the right to appeal but it’s unlikely I’d win. I want to believe them when they tell me their reasons but deep down I think it’s because I have a mental illness. Their attitude towards my sickness really changed when they found out my diagnosis and I can’t shake that.
In some ways it is a relief as it was destroying me working as a teacher. However, I have no idea what to do now. I need to work, teaching is what I do but it makes me ill. I need money too of course so now I have that to worry about too.
