This Is My First Week At My New Job

I went to the office and my mind started spinning and "burning" almost immediately. all I needed to do is learn how to complete some forms then fill them in with client data. As it turned out, my boss and two other workers (I didn't expect the normally quiet office to be so crowded!) started moving all the furniture around and mounting stuff on the walls, replacing the file holder on the desk I was using (which is supposedly my desk, according to my boss).

After about 45 minutes I couldn't hold in my feelings so I took a break in the bathroom and started crying in a stall. My boss entered the bathroom and asked if I was OK, and if she could do anything. I truthfully told her, "No not at the moment." I really wanted to leave my job- return to the office, pack up my stuff and leave. But I didn't.

The office was so noisy. I had so many things to learn. My boss was busy, so I didn't want to bother her with questions, but I knew there were forms to submit by the 15th. I was afraid to ask. I felt I'd gone psychotic.

At the end of the day, my boss sympathized and suggested I do my opaperwork on Wednesdays when the office is less busy. she also told not to worry about work over the weekend. Thank goodness she said that, or I would have.

I am physically and emotionally exhausted now.

I can relate to that.
