What would you do ?

Quit or wait to be fired ?

Lets put it this way. I have never ever been fired. I am good at what I do and I would never apply for a job I am not qualified for.

That being said. I just started this job a month ago. In that month I have seen falsified documents, interoffice politics, cattiness, blame being put on several people (including myself) for things that we had no control over, constant issues almost daily, and more favoritisms than I can list.

I hate it. Honestly I think I am on the verge of being let go for reasons untrue and unfair.

Should I just leave or wait to be fired? What would you do?

No job is worth this stress!  I would quit but writting up your resignation list all the issues driving you to quit.  therefore going for a new job you have the proof why you left for your next employer

You are right. I am stressed every single day. :(

Hubby says that I should leave because its not worth it, but I am terrified of our finances. I dont think I would qualify for unemployment either. Especially if I quit.

I would look for another job and then quit

I agree start looking now.

If you can show "hostile work environment" you would qualify for unemployment even if you quit. Maybe go to dr just to show work is stressing you out. Get him to write you a note to take a few days off. That's a good first step. Look into how your state handles it just to make sure

I dont have the time to look for a new job. I have done a few online searches, but I need more time to actively look. I would call out for 1 day, but I am sure I would be told not to come back or something terrible :(

I like this idea, but my doctor is pretty strict...he wouldnt give me a note for time off :(

Well go amd ask if he or she says no find a new Dr too. LOL but I am dead serious. Sometimes it takes a while to find a good Dr and if you're afraid to ask for something you need, I'd say he or she is not the best one for you. JMHO Life is too short to not get some or most of what u want, or be miserable at work, or afraid to live your life b/c of what u think someone else will do or say. Good luck.
