Having a bad day!!
When I returned to work last year they made me do a risk assessment with HR and management, the first point they covered was that I must learn to manage my illness better, to do this I had to tell them when I could feel myself going down hill and my manager will arrange for me to take emergency annual leave to stop it affecting my sick record. All well and good on paper!
I woke up today feeling awful and knowing the warning signals I know I'm headed for a flare so came into work, told my manager and asked to have emergency leave for Thursday and Friday as per risk assessment. I managed to get tomorrow off after sorting out my own cover but apparently Friday is a bad day to be off so if I want that day off I will have to go sick, if I dont want to go sick I have to be in work as usual. Considering this is the first time I have tried to use the risk assessment to my advantage and call for a bit of support I'm just left feeling uterly p****ed off that yet again I get limited or no support from the people who claim to put staff welfare first.
Sorry for the moan but I'm just not in the mood to deal with this rubbish
