Angry Lost it

I totally lost it on the way home from work today. I had a bad day at work again today. I'm supposed to be perfect and catch everyone elses mistakes and when something slips past me I get the chewing out!! Plus I was mad because I had to drive my husbands truck and with my leg pain it hurts to use the clutch. I was so p***ssed at him for making me take the truck while he takes my car out of town to visit a friend.

I just bawled the whole way home and cussing at my boss and husband. Telling them what I didn't have the nerve to say to their face.

I have no courage to say it to them. I just let it bottle up and then explode when I"m by myself. I feel a little better now that it's out of me but it still makes me so mad and upset

Can you vent to your husband about what happened at work?

I am really sorry you had a bad day. You struggled, but you made it through it and that is something to be proud of.

smmath, I have vented to him about work. he knows what I go through daily. He just tells me that I need to tell my boss how I feel but I can't. he tells me not to get upset and just keep a log of everything in case I have to take it higher up but it's so hard for me not to get mad....I just wish I could open up and express my feelings.

eating chocolate for dinner and feeling a little better

That's going to have to come out sooner or later. You can't keep it bottled up. Pick your time wisely. A time when its fresh enough to still have some... anger & resentment but not so much that you're boiling over and your state becomes a bigger issue than the issues... or can be made to seem so

George, it's easier said than done but I'll try. Maybe start with one issue at a time with the boss and see how he reacts..just wish I had the self confidence to stick up for myself

It is for this reason (no self-confidence), I started documenting everything...

Yes, it's hard to live without self-confidence.
