I used to adore my job. Now, almost 7 years later and after a landslide of blunders (and bullying episodes) by my line manager, and the company, that has lead to a public demotion, two mental breakdowns and now a forced 6 month sabbatical from the only part of my job I enjoyed (travelling and training staff) while I receive counselling, I resent every second I spend there. It almost burns me to be on the premises. I'm humiliated and broken.
