A few weeks ago I asked a question - any ideas on coping with going back to work after absence? -and thank you to those who replied.
I never felt well enough and am not back yet but I had a manager referral to the Occupational Health team today (who are always lovely)
I have 3 conditions including GAD and after consent/confirmation from my doctor they are going to recommend, and it has to acted upon, that I no longer work in the most stressful department. She told me it was too soon to come back to work yet and that she didn't want me leaving with any worries but it would all be done. I burst into tears of relief as I will be getting away from an awful boss as well.
Of course I have still been anxious!! My boss wants a meeting with me on Friday and I can't tell her this until they do the recommendation, plus I said I would probably be back next week. That's the way my mind has been keeping me anxious when I have been told the great news that I will have less work stress, which is like my dream come true. The new department might be no bed of roses but I have done the type of work before.
I read this site all the time so wanted to share my good news with anyone who will listen!
And thank you for that xx
