I've been off work for five weeks after catching flu . Usually when I catch something I take a while to recover but for some reason I just can't seem to fight it off this time. I work as a TA in a school and was planning to go back tomorrow (I only work Thursdays and Fridays) but I don't think I can. I seem drained of energy and the thought of trying to help children is starting to stress me out. I'm worried about whether I might lose my job as I have a lot of time off.
I'm sure some people think I'm just making excuses. Once before when I was off someone remarked that 'everyone's tired'. No one seems to understand. I think I'll have to just go in and hope I get through the day.
Some thoughts from others would be appreciated
