Hello,  I have a question about my throat and not really sure what to do about it.  I could be over-reacting and hope I am but wanted to see if anyone could share any insights.  Ok, so I had been in a stressful job for awhile, my bosses subtly hinted that it was time for me to move on.  I had a couple other bosses that subtly hinted that I should stay, this went on for about a year.  I thought if I had supporters at work then why not, I'll stay because it seems at any job you have people for you and people against you.  Anyway, things got intense, so I took a leave of absense.  Upon coming back from my leave, I had to meet with my immediate boss for "feedback"as one of the other bosses described in the email.  I knew the boss I was going to meet with did not like me at all.  I wish I had said something came up and didn't go but I thought it was the only way to get my job back, hold myself out with the company awhile longer until I found  new job.  So I met the boss in the office, he did not let me get a word in, and it began, he told me that I couldn't perform the job at the expected level and one of the other associates took my role (a person who I trained).  So this person who I worked very hard with the past year yelled at me for about 15 minutes while looking me in the eyes.  I didn't want to loose my job so I just sat there and listened.  (I wish I had got up and punched him in his face and then kicked him while he was on the ground)  I'm not a violent person but honestly he was being very harsh.  When he was done he excused me.  I went home without a job and not much to do.  I was very angry and stressed so I yelled while in my car at the top of my lungs trying to hurt myself.  And I did.  A few weeks later I developed a bloody lump on the back of my throat and it hurt to swallow.  I gargled salt water and it went away although my throat is still soar.  A few months went by and it got better but I can still feel some sensitivity.  Worried that I"m not fully healing and worried that I did some serious damage I saw an ENT (Ear, Nose, Throat) MD, I explained that I yelled, he said no no you're okay so I left.  I am still without a job and the stress is rising, I feel like a loser and I'm still angry for what I allowed my boss to do to me.  Maybe if I get another job, which is difficult since I do not have one things will improve. Maybe the stress is causing my sore throat.  If anyone has any insights or have been in a similar situation I love to hear how you worked through this issue.  Thanks!
