    If you can, yeah. Take a mental health day. It's ok.

    Work will help you deal with the mental stuff. A good job well done has it's rewards. Or join the unemployment line.

    If you can without getting in trouble or caught

    Your reputation is like a mansion that is built with bricks. In your case every time you mess up at work or anywhere, you are taking a brick off your mansion. And it's adding down quickly. If and when you get fired, you can bet on one thing. Your reputation will follow. If they dislike you enough, the personnel offices between old and new job will get in contact and discuss that person with coping issues (you). Respect your future. Start getting organized.

    No. According to your earlier post, your day shift counterparts are already complaining about you. Why add fuel to the fire?

    First, we do what we HAVE to do. Will your life be better and easier of you lose your job? Is it good for you to be weak and make excuses or is it better to learn to make yourself do stuff even when you don't want to.

    AFTER we have done whatever we need to do for our survival (like earning a living), we have to prioritise all the other crap that happens in every life.

    It is easy to be overwhelmed by the mass of 'stuff' that seems so impossible it clouds our mind. That's no good. We need to take control. We start to do this by writing it down ... just a list of everything we need to do. Once it is written down, we can get our head around it and work out which are most important and which really do not matter for now.

    Once we have got our list of things we need to do, we sort them into order of importance. Some have to be done soon. Some can wait. Some will have benefits if we do them or bad penalties if we don't do them. Some really won't. Then we start working our way through the list, always dealing with the most important thing and not allowing ourselves any excuses until we have achieved it. Then we check on what the next highest priority is and start working on that. The list changes constantly as stuff happens in our lives.

    The process never ends but it means WE are in control all the way so we never have to get too 'freaked' to function properly. It is about taking control and refusing to live like a victim. You could call it 'self empowerment' if you like. Really it is just part of becoming a mature, self-reliant adult.

    No. Go to work or you'll be dealing with unemployed too.

    Absolutely. Just tell them you are too freaked out to focus on work today so you need to take a mental health day. Tell them you should be able to come in tomorrow depending on how much mental stuff you are able to sort out today.

    If you don't know what to do, how are random strangers on the internet supposed to know?
