Our expert says:
Your work sounds really stressful caused by the toxic situation and bosses. If they are being abusive you can lay claim but this should always be avoided and seen as a last resort as it will make your current stress seem mild in comparison as the process is terribly taxing.
My suggestion is that you tell them that you are not coping and are having a nervous breakdown. Even go to a Dr and get a letter perhaps.
When it comes to bosses they are usually stressing about the business not doing well enough and hand the stress over to the employees. If you ask lovingly how the business is doing that could really help change the behaviour.
Another thing to try when they are shouting at you or are abusive is to say this:
1. When you shout at me
2. I feel very nervous and feel like Im about to have a breakdown
3. ... because you have shouted at me allot in the past.
4. In future please speak nicely to me.
5. Would that be ok?
Please tell me how it goes:)
All the best,
Dr Justin Kennedy
