Have been mega poorly lately with kidney infection, chest infection and sickness bug. Am on prednisolone, hydroxychloroquine and methotrexate and been told by my rheumy am immuno deficient. Was signed off work two weeks only to return this week and be told they cannot tolerate my absence any longer. Have been told I am allowed no more than four days absence up to Easter, if I cannot keep to this HR will deal with me direct. Have already been seen by Occupational Health and have now contacted my Union again for further support.
I am so tired of fighting illness and lupus, juggling different pills and then my blood INR goes sky high.
My work lack understanding and have no compassion, they do not understand I have no control over my illness. Am so tired of putting on a brave face and what makes it worse is I know this is the beginning of a very long road of battles at work - my Occupational Health report was talking about tribunals!
I am really worn out and have very little fight left.
