I think someone posted on this site some weeks ago that asthma was a condition that could not be counted as part of sickness absence- am I correct or cracking up?!
The reason I ask is that I work in the public health sector as a nursing assistant but I have had four periods of time off sick in recent months- a fall where a fracture was suspected; a severe migraine where I spent most of the day vomiting; a slip at work hurting my back and a chest infection and acute flare up of asthma which still isn't under control- it was diagnosed in October last year and I'm presently on Duoresp Spiromax but I'm still coughing and wheezing. I am seeing the asthma nurse again next week.
My manager told me yesterday that I would have to have a joint meeting with HR and herself to discuss the matter.
As you can guess I feel pretty anxious and rather frustrated as one of my times off sick was due to an accident at work which was not my fault.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated
