I could do with some advice please.
How important is avoiding stress with this condition?
As well as working in music, I also work part-time in sales. When I had my first of a series of AF attacks last September, my boss was really sympathetic and understanding. He has now become a nightmare.
Sadly, I had to take some time off in December with this lousy virus that's been going round, and of course I was off for a few days after my first DC Cardioversion in November, last year.
Following my recent hospital visit at the weekend, my Cardiologist, (who performed my DCCV) told me I was not to drive today due to the drugs they used to sedate me. When I told my boss I was back in hospital on Sunday, he wished me well and hoped I'd be fit for two sales appointments today.
Obviously I told him I couldn't work today and apart from one text saying he was 'busy', he's totally ignored me.
His pattern is that if I am off work through illness, he will 'punish' me by keeping me off a few more days, making excuses such as them being quiet. As this happens nearly every time now, I don't believe him.
Just wondered what people thought of this wonderful management technique and what would you do to handle this to reduce the stress. My partner is very worried about the stress this is causing, as when I'm well I need to be working. Life feels like a time bomb at the moment.
