How do I know if I really have a problem?
We all have ups and downs. It’s not always easy to decide when to ask for help. Your District 141 EAP representative can help you determine whether you need to take action. Remember, it’s better to deal with a problem before it becomes overwhelming.
Ask yourself these questions.
Do I think about the problem frequently or, am I always worried about the same thing?
Am I just telling myself the problem “isn’t that bad and it’ll just go away,” but it doesn’t?
Do I feel tired, frustrated, depressed, angry or sick?
Is my job performance or dependability being affected?
Do I feel like giving up?
