Hi all, I am looking for a bit of advice and hope someone can help.
I’ve been recently diagnosed, which I am handling ok so far I think. My last relapse was October which took me a few months to physically get over. To be honest, apart from a few sensory symptoms left over, I have felt ok since and kind of expected it to be another few years at least until I had any more problems. In hindsight, I was probably a bit naive to think that.
This last week, I have become increasingly more fatigued, both physically and mentally. I initially tried to work through it, I am a busy working mum of two but I am now currently off sick feeling just too fatigued and bone weary to do anything. My husband has been supportive.
I feel guilty about letting my employer down, I don’t like to be a drain on anyone, on my boss, colleagues and family. Just wondering how other people in the same situation handle it? Do you need to put yourself first?
Thanks in advance.
