Mental health


Still a taboo, unfortunately...

And misunderstood. Perhaps that is precisely why there is a taboo on it.

At work, I started having panic attacks. So bad that I was shaking, very anxious and emotional. Personally, I didn't even understand what was happening, let alone my chief. When asked if I could go home, I was told to go for a cup of coffee and I immediately got my next assignments. He didn't know what to do with it, let alone me...

When I was depressed at home, with anxiety attacks and all the misery that comes with it, my supervisor called. If I'd be there tomorrow. “I'm afraid that's not going to work,” I replied. “And you already know that?!” I was told...

The calls for the company doctor, HR, etc. continue unabated. While in the meantime you're going crazy! No one understands or helps you. Not at the company, not even colleagues who say they are jealous of your 'part-time job'. Also, I often got the remark if I had already had my sedative tablets. And that while you try to get back to work on a therapeutic basis.

Eventually I got a call with the announcement that my employment was hanging by a thread. That was the last push... The rest is history. Never have I been back on that company and I absolutely do not intend to do it anymore! So, the tag #health for me also mainly means #mentalhealth And as far as I'm concerned, that can be taboo off. Being sick is not the same as being 'crazy', which, incidentally, is a stupid collective word for everything that one does not understand. Don't be Judgemental...
