I have posted on here before about my cognitive issues at work. An OT came to visit me at work and gave me some advice on how to cope with concentration and fatigue at work (unfortunately my boss was off sick on that day but he's seen the document and agrees with everything).
However, despite me being re-assured by my boss that he and the main boss want to keep hold of me and will make allowances for my cognitive issues, I've had the two most stressful weeks ever.
I've been given one of the most difficult peices of work (because everyone in the team thought I had the right skills to do it). However the work took longer than expected (so did other people's tasks in the team so I wasn't the only one). I was doing an average of 9 hours a day without a lunch break and then logging-on to my PC from home in the evenings when my children had gone to bed. Inbetween the tasks I had a day off sick because I was exhausted.
In our project review meeting the main boss said that my approach had obviously been wrong because we hadn't finished. I felt like saying 'f*** you, do you realise how much effort I've put in, despite feeling so damn rubbish?!'. My boss didn't even step in! I arranged a meeting with him afterwards but he went off sick, infact he's had more days off than I have! lol
I felt like my head was exploding and was taking it out on my wife and kids. That is the worst part. I don't want to look in a few years and wonder why I let it get to me.
Any suggestions? Physically I am doing sort of okay at the moment, pain but managable, but mentally I'm a mess!
