I go back to work tomorrow after having 4 weeks off due to the exhauation / tiredness, / etc, This is the longest amount of time off in one go, due to Lupus, up till now most has been 3 days.
Not sure how I feel, It doesn't help that I'm not actually enjoying my job at the moment, basically 2 teams amalgamated so spent from Jan - April cross training, plus preasure of work still having to be done, also been coping with husband who has been off work since middle of Jan with severe depression.
So I'll go back tomorrow and know I'll have a back to work meeting, you know the kind of thing, How are you ? are you well enough to be back ? what can we do to help ? I have got one of the leaflets from Lupus UK ( the one Someone you know may have Lupus ) to give them which might help them umderstand maybe ! I am also going to ask them to get the access to work peolpe in to see if they can sort out a different key board, I find that an hour on the lap top is enough to make the hands ache / hurt, difficulut when that's your main tool to do you job.
Will see how I get on, they might suggest that I do part time to start with, I know that the exhaustion is going to be the biggest problem.
How have any of you coped when going back to work ? If so any help would be appreciated.
I will write another blog tomorrow to let you know how I get on, that is unless to tired
