I am extremely low I had a voluntary job 3 shifts a week which for most of the time I loved and got on fine with. I was promoted to volunteer shift manager which meant originally I opened up and closed up and dealt with cashing up and floats etc. Workwise I have found life difficult, long periods of unemployment. 36 jobs since I have left school for short periods some temporary, some I've been fired from, some I've left. I have bipolar disorder and alcohol problems which does not help. However I got on great at this voluntary job stuck it for 3 1/2 years longest ever. Then a 20 year old volunteer who started at the same time as me as a young volunteer started as an assistant manager and his attitude totally changed towards me he became over critical, authoritative patronising and downright rude. It came to a head 2 days ago when I made a mistake on the till he shouted at me and told me he was keeping the receipts and then proceeded to tell me that 5 people were on the till the previous day and not one of them had made a mistake. That was the point that I told him that I was leaving. I text my boss at home and told him and walked out. I was due to go in and see him today but I am quite hot headed and likely to say something I would regret my parents have written a letter for me which is very polite respectful direct and gets my point across they always say I should leave a job with dignity and self respect in tact because you never know when you might need them again or meet people again is this right? At the age of 49. Coming on 50 in 3 weeks I found it really difficult to be patronised by someone 30 years my junior. I am trying to put a brave face on my parents diamond wedding is happening on Saturday restrictions allowing, I know I'm going to have to go there and be happy, not drink too much as in get blind drunk but I have been having very dark thoughts. At the moment every day Is a battle with more restrictions coming up I think early January I might end up in a psych ward.

i hope you sort this out, shame that you walked out of a job you clearly loved. Perhaps they could have found you a different position with responsibility.
i know all about depression, and have been on a psych ward, please discuss this a doctor before doing anything.
My time spent in a psych ward quite some years ago suffering from similar issues to yourself was beneficial.

It helped me take control of my life and I met some totally mad *** that I liked.
Don't make rash decisions!!
