    Hello @sunshinerose3286

    I'm so sorry you've been under so much. With the agency, I would submit a letter detailing everything you are struggling with and see if they can help find a job to suit you better. Do you have someone that may be able to help you with that? I find I sometimes don't think of everything I need for myself so having someone else have a look would cover all bases.

    I'd also ask at the job if they could make any reasonable adjustments for you. Would a different start time or even splitting breaks to be more frequent during the day help?
