Work is driving me crazy.
As background, i lost my job last year and, although things werent as bad then as they are now, it was still really difficult to get another job. I eventually found a job but a large element of the job is in an area that i have no real interest in.
Also, a part of the job is that it involves evening work and answering a mobile helpline when it rings - including weekends and evenings. In theory i am meant to get time off in lieu of evening work but because of work load this never happens.
I have raised the issue with my employer before and their attitude was that "this is the only job i have for you", which is understandable.
I am so so busy that i cannot physically get to all my work and i am getting stressed about the backlog. I feel that i am constantly firefighting and i make mistakes, which makes me more and more angry with myself.
I know that this is having an effect on my life, i come home from work exhausted and stressed and terrified that im going to miss something or mess up something and get fired. I find it really hard to relax outside work as im constantly worried and waiting for the stupid mobile to ring.
I know that things are bad everywhere at the moment and im lucky to have a job but sometimes i just feel like im going to crack up if i something doesnt change.
I dont know where to go. I have tried working as hard as i can but i just cant seem to get on top of everything. Should i say something to my boss or is there any point?
Is there any way to increase my productivity?
