I'm new on here, but am apart of the facebook group. A bit of background about me, I had a stroke 2016, discovered I had a cavernoma. That's when it felt like my world imploded! I had a lack of support from any professional agency, I feel that this could of been to do with my age, but again I cant be sure on this. Since then, I had surgery in May 2017, and am now back at work, but I just feel that I am struggling with my mood and juggling the demands of work and family life. I really could do with advice on coping and if theres anything I can tell my employer. I can't be put somewhere else as I am the team leader of my team and theres only 2 of us! My work involves assessing the elderly and putting measures in place so that they don't end up in hospital and so they live their lives independently! I really used to enjoy this role, but I'm finding that I am exhausted all the time, I'm not able to get regular breaks like was promised, as there are only two of us and if the other girls off, I'm the only one there! I really don't think that people at work understand this at all, I have printed off things for them to read, but don;t think they have. I just feel that now there's nothing 'physically' wrong with me, everything's back to normal, when really it's far from! I have informed them of the things I suffer with, but now its having a major impact on my mood. I have felt really low and just feel that I can't keep going on feeling like this. I have a GP appointment on Friday, but am so scared to bring this up as I'm also applying for my licence, so I don't want them to revoke it permanently because of my mental health!
If anyone can give me any advice, I'd really appreciate it!
Sorry for the long post :/
