I am now in week 3 of an absence from work. My GP has signed me off for the next month and this is an unfamiliar experience for me, I think I need a getting well diary to replace my work version.
the medical plan involves (at my request) stopping the propanolol that I was surviving on, and then the zopiclone. I want a new baseline as it were.
The future remains a scary country and I have no idea how this will work out but my biggest challenge in the short term is letting go of the guilt about not being at work and the affect on my staff. I dropped into see them last Friday which in hindsight was not a great idea.. yet.
now I have read a few books on mental health in my time but I am going to recommend one to you all if you haven't read it, by a psychiatrist called Tim Cantopher. sheldonpress.co.uk/books/08...
I have to say that it really does speak to the problems I face and I guess many of you too.
Stay strong folks.
