Still off work
I tried so hard to go in to work Monday morning and just couldn’t.
The medication feels like it’s kicking in now and, as usual for me, I have every side effect possible.
I walked out of the door and froze on the spot, gripped with fear and anxiety.
I phoned to let them know I’m not able to come back yet, they weren’t understanding and requested I come in for a meeting today to discuss everything…They want a time frame for when I can come back.
Meeting was cancelled.
I need to go back to the Drs. and get another sick note or I can see me losing my job.
I hate my job but, it pays the bills. I need it.
What am I supposed to do? Without work I have no social interactions, no income, nothing.
I’m unable to cope with the simplest things right now, let alone the stress of a full working day, why can’t they just understand that all I need is some time for the medication to settle and hopefully I can come back? I was hoping I could explain all this at the meeting.
The last thing I need right now is to worry about what I’m going to do once I’m functioning again, I need to concentrate on getting better.
