Hi all and hoping you are all well,
I’ve had the last 3 weeks off work due to relapse, tried to go back to work today as sick note had run out, took me 40 mins to walk there it normally only takes 15. I walked into the shop and my manager took one look at me and said “are you sure you should be coming back yet?” so I burst into tears in a shop full of customers. After calming down I agreed to go back home, contacted GP and he signed me off for another fortnight.
This my first confirmed relapse so I’m just learning how to deal with it all, but I thought I knew better than anybody else around me including the GP when he told me not to rush back to work, the probelm is I only work part time anyway so don’t get any sick pay from company so hate having time off work I might get a bit of SSP. Now I feel very silly for not listening. Why do I always think I know better? I hate arrogance especially my own.
Two more weeks of daytime TV! God help me!
