Just realised I hadn't updated you all, when so many were so helpful during the three year fight!
Well, I'm still at work, technically I'm on holiday at the moment. I've done the battles with the help of Unison, my Union. Had the meetings and now, finally, completed the year of no sickies! Not actually true, but my school helped me by saying they'd send me home if I was sick which isn't counted in the same way. I did have to drag myself in and was sent home a couple of times, and I did ring in sick a couple of other times, (for couple don't think two, think two or more).
I know, beurocracy! I said it makes it look like I was lying, but was reassured by personnel that she didn't think I was, it was County. Well I chose to kind of believe her.
So, come September, I return to work with a clean slate!
Personally, I just think I was lucky plus had learned to pace myself along with meditation. Now what am I doing? Messing with my medication, trying to reduce and come off Lyrica. I'm sick of being so overweight! My Pain Management Clinic think they have an alternative, not usually used for FM. I will let you know what it's called. But that Gabapentin also has horrid side affects. As Lyrica does work for me it's a gamble. I may have to go back on it.
It's the summer hols so best time for me to try to, at least, reduce the medication.
Thank you, everyone, for your efforts to help me.
