Midwives warn of making mistakes due to burnout


I'm currently off work with anxiety and workplace stress, I asked my Gp to be clear that was the issue - I've started anti anxiety meds and feel terrible - I've been asked by manager to share my thoughts less than a week away - I'm anxious I ache all over clammy and feel shaky and completely exhausted - it's anxiety about work and I'm thinking about work 3/4 of my day and why I'm off and feel it's too early to discuss with manager. I'm considering already selling my house renting and paying off finance in order to look for another Job less stressful - I adore midwifery and it's a very sad thought for me to leave but I can't see me going back at this time 😢
