Hi hearties, not looking for names or anything but I’m not being treated great by mine and just wondering if anyone else encountered issues?
I had a widowmaker in Nov 2020, returned to work Feb 2021. Went back to extra responsibilities, other people’s roles (due to a round of redundancies) and no support or understanding of what I’d been through.
I got so stressed as I now struggle with short term memory and some executive functions, all normal after being dead for over a minute. I went for regular blood check with GP and liver enzyme levels were raised to to cortisol created by stress.
I’ve been signed off since end June and my work are now on the back foot due to criticism of my treatment by occupational health and my union rep. We’re going through a plan to ensure my condition is now taken seriously.
Has anyone had a similar experience or any advice?
I work for a large bank who are always at pains to say how much they care about their staff and customers and they’re listening to them. Yet my reality is it’s all words and no substance.
