Nothing I have said on the letter can be taken as rude. However I saved a secure document, altered it considerably and then attached it to the secure document she sent me. All within the time scale alloted to me, 5 days.
My doctor mentioned that he did think she may have confused FM with something else, so I said so. I also added information she had not allowed me to tell her. Plus information that my Dr was asking my Rheumatologist to look at a list I had written him [doctored to make more readable by me] and see whether he could now give me a diagnosis or a date when he could see me. Fingers crossed!
I had such a hard job finding that blasted secure email the OC sent me and I saved though. Thought I was going to have to do it all over again and it took me ages! Finally found it, added a polite letter at the end, saved it and then attached it to the secure form along with the information that there was a letter included. I suspect I have given her a long task to complete before she sends it on, but as I have a copy of what I said and she said, and shall print it out ready, just in case, I am fairly confident that it will be done. I am getting so cautious, but after reading how so many of us are being ripped off and treated badly I think we should all watch our backs, just to be safe.
I have even emailed the Union to say I will wait until I have picked up my copies of all the sick notes I handed in since Septemer 2010! I have also got a file of the emails I received since my return to work.
Oh I am getting so mean! No good being soft as everyone walks all over you - however, I am not going to become hard either! Have a job at my size!
Wow I feel empowered! I have even made a joke! Off to bed, so night night everyone. Sweet dreams, soft hugs and heres to a kinder world tomorrow!
