DOn’t know if anyone can advise me or dhare your experiences. I have been off work this week due to an infection - this made me feel poorly (ie like anyone else would feel) but additionally it knocked me for six in terms of MS. I ahve been getting progressively slower and wobblier over the last six months - I have not put a name on the condition (except to Ocupational Health who have known since Dx) but it is plain to see there is a problem. I have a seniot job and have just kept going - the only concession I have asked for is shortened hours whilst my eyes got sorted out as I cannot drive in the dark.
I am due back at work on Monday but honestly do notknow if I can face it - both emotionally and physically. I have a long drive to work and walking into and around the office scares me - I am shuffling at the moment and relying on two sticks. I just do not know if I can do it. I know I am depressed as well - just keep going into meltdown and weeping everywhere. Not sleepong either - which doesn’t help my legs much.
How do you know when you have gone past the point of it being “difficult” - I can do difficult and have been doing that for months. When do you know you have reached the point you can be off sick legitimately and indeed should be?
I know I have to declare MS openly and have a plan in place to do that by the way.
