Hi everyone I have been of work since last November with the worst flare up of Fibro ever. I only work 16 hours weekly but it had been a constant battle to keep with with my working schedule since I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia 4 years ago. I have suffered from depression most of my adult life, have high blood pressure and gallstones so I have days (and nights) where I can barely function. I had a meeting with my manager on Monday past as human rescources requested detailed information from my G.P regarding my health so this was discussed when we met up. Listening to the details of this report was depressing as I sometimes am in denial about my condition but somehow this made it seem more real. I told my manager I would really like to be able to return to work but I couldnt predict how I was going to be feeling from one day to the next! I am due to see my doctor on Monday as my sick line finishes on Sunday and I am getting really anxious thinking should I/shouldnt I return to work even if its making me feel worse and if my .G.P says I am unfit to return would I be entitled to any sickness benefits? My husband is working in a job he hates with bad wages so I feel guilty that I am unable to do more to contribute financially.
Thanks in advance for reading this and I hope you all are keeping on top of the fibro x
