    Been really struggling with heartburn recently and it's had me up through the night etc, as well as getting up every hour for a wee so today I've decided to stay off work cause I'm soooo exhausted, I feel bad but I honestly felt I needed it.

    In March I asked for a pay rise for the 4th time as my colleagues (there are 3 of us in the same role for different areas) both earn a ridiculous amount more than me, I'm talking like 5/6k a year which I think is outrageous. I'm not one to blow my own horn but I have great feedback from the people I work with, I'm reliable,trustworthy and I'm 2nd in command when my manager is off...... A lot of responsibility. So I refused to take no for an answer this time and told him that if it was a no I wanted a meeting with his boss so she could explain to me why it was fair that others get paid so much more than me etc.
    Well today I finally have been given my pay rise which is 4k :) I'm chuffed to bits as I really wasn't expecting it to be that much!

    Bit of a pointless thread but I've been so wound up about it for such a long time that it feels great to finally have it! Will only fully benefit for 3 pay days though as then will be off on Maternity and will return on reduced hours, but that means I'll be getting more per month on 32 hours than I do now on 37.5 haha great stuff!!! Xx

    Great news about your payrise! I've been there with the lack of sleep and ringing up work the next day. Taking one day to recharge can make a world of difference.
