I have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and have been trying to carry on working full time for the last 9 months. My employer started off ok but over the last 6 months or so has been piling on the pressure and adding weekly to my work load. Ive had meetings with them and broken dowm quite a few times in the office. I hae also kept them informed of hospital appts and changes in meds. ive been in contact with my union and they say i am being bullied and advised that I see my GP for something in writing. i saw my GP yesterday morning and broke down in his office, I was asked to take some tests and he spent a long time talking to me. He advised that due to my illness and the added presure of work he thinks I am seriously depressed. He has made me make an appt with a therapist and said that i will need proper anti depressents on top of my usual drugs. He wrote me a fit to work note ticking all the boxes( reduction in hours,duties, adaptaions) and said that i have to realise i cant carry on as if nothing is wrong. i went to work and had a meeting with them. they took the note and seemed surprised he thought i was depressed and said exactly what sdid he think they should do. I got upset again and they said would speak to HR & OC. I was then sent out to my desk to carry on as if nothing had happenned. I have been asked for consent so they can ask my GP for a medical report as well. I came into work today and nothing has been mentioned, except one comment about did i feel better now id had time to think and sleep on it!!! im wondering now where i stand, as it doesnt look as though they are doing anything and i am due to see my GP again monday.
Sorry for the lost post but i wanted to include as much as i could remember.
