I have just joined accounting web so I apologise if this has been asked before.
I am a sole practioner and have been for 8 years. I am completely stressed, working 7 days a week for yes reasonable money but for very unappreciative clients (about 75%) . I feel like packing it all in and sailing into the sunset and then finding a completely unstressful job that at the end of every day I can leave work at work and go home and forget. Are there other people out there feeling like this or is it just me? If you have ever found yourself in this position what have you done to overcome it? I feel like a complete failure at the moment. I don't want to discuss with my family as I don't want anyone else worrying.
I can't describe it but I feel like I am in a constant state of anxiety wondering what the day is going to bring and what is going to go wrong. It means everything takes so much longer as I just cannot focus. It is affecting my health I know and I am not sure how much more I can take.
I would really just appreciate understanding what other people have gone through.
Thank you for taking your time to read this.
