Hi all. I've been out of work due to the M.E. for almost a year, (I've been sick for 2+ years gradually getting worse), it’s exacerbated with other health conditions).
Work is now putting pressure on the Occupational Health Dr for a determination to see if I am going to be fit to return to work “in the foreseeable future”. Unless there is a miracle over the festive period I am nowhere near fit for work as I am unable to look after myself let alone another, (I work in NHS). Some days I do little more than lie about and my cognitive functioning is terrible as I cannot keep track of anything and a situation remotely stressful or requiring focus and concentration drains me and I cannot respond properly.
I won’t be seeing the Occupational Health Dr until the end of January which is a month or so over my years sick, ‘(and HR came across as if they were doing me a BIG favour!). By then I imagine I will be told I am to loose my job, (absolutely gutted at loosing a career I love dearly). Just what I need – more stress!!
Have any others on here gone through the same experience? What is likely to happen with the pension? Any/all advice welcome.
Many thanks for replies.
