I have been determined not to let Lupus get the better of me, but it looks like it may now be taking my job. I reduced my hours from full time to 20 hours a week last May. I have been off sick again since Nov 2017 due to Pericarditus, despite the consultants trying various treatments it doesn't seem to want to go. My rheumatologist wants to start me on a course of Cyclophosphamide infusions over 3 months. I have advised my employer of this as I've been told it's going to severely knock my immune system back, so no way of returning to work soon. I've now been invited to a sickness review hearing, which I have already been told is likely to end with my contract ending. I am doing the sensible thing and taking my Unison rep in with me, she says it's nothing to worry about and it's just about getting the best deal for me now. I will be glad when it's over, as they've been threatening this for the last four months.
