I have been forced by my company to work 70 hour weeks due

Customer Question

I have been forced by my company to work 70 hour weeks for months due to my manager who got made some adjustments to my team. I worked these kind of hours for close to 6 months and I am being judged as though I have 3 people working instead of one. This has caused me no ends of stress and I do not believe I am being treated fairly by my management. I have gone to HR but I feel massive amounts of stress due to my toxic relationship with my boss.
