Hope you are all as well as possible and keeping warm. I'm feeling the need to have a bit of a moan to people who understand about living with fibro.
At work I fulfill all my duties and just get on with things, making my own adjustments when needed to cope with pain and stiffness. A new duty was introduced and I had a trial run at it in November, it was too much for me and caused a big flare up and I was off sick for a month. Weight bearing and repetitive movements for two hours! You can imagine how that was . I was told I had to try it again this week and the same happened again. i can't make any adjustments as it is in a sterile working area with strict procedures. Today I told my manager that I just can't manage it and won't be able to try again. I was told that HR would now have to be involved and that the other staff members do it and it is a vital part of the job. it's a once a week job that takes two hours! Im covered by the equalities act and would have thought it was a reasonable adjustment to not do this one part of the job. You will all know how it feels to have to battle against things , just don't know if I have the strength for another redeployment battle. Therefore naffed off. Sorry for the long moan. X
