Liza, what you're describing sounds like the meds are actually working, but that, as is usually the case, they are not, on their own, enough --- surely you need good counselling / psychotherapy AS WELL, to identify the triggers, sort out the negative automatic thoughts and reactions that are troubling you, and work on improving still further your problem-solving skills for working on the issues troubling you ?
OK, sounds like an over-controlling boss. How annoying. It's a shame that almost always, people are made a boss for office-politics reasons, and never given any actual training in how to be effective as a boss ; so most of them make a mess of it. It's like my old, late, pal Northcote Parkinson wrote, of how everyone in an organization rises to their Level of Incompetence ? If you're good at your job, they promote you -- until you reach a job you can't do ( maybe like your boss ) --- and then they stop promoting you, so such people get stuck all over the organization, messing up the work of others.
When she arrives to add new priorities to the list she already supplied at the start, can't ou ask her which of the original list of priorities they are to replace ? Remind her that the morning list was planned to cover every important priority AND to be achievable within the day, so obviously adding items to the list implies that these new items are more impotan than some of the original list, and ought to replace them, and that as the first list was properly planned to fill the day, additional items could well make it impossible to complete the list within the day.
Can you discus this with you HR people ( short of lodging a formal complaint just yet )? And maybe after the raise is decided, if that'snot too far ahead ?
You are unique in many ways, including being the first person I have met who mourns the postponement of their sky-diving hobby ! Is there any safer substitute in the meantime ? Maybe helping with the skydiving team, such as going up in the plane, or whatever ?
