Why does everyone proceed to say that I used to be fun? Why won't you drink are you afraid of a headaches? You look pale you should run? Strange how after a year, you suffered fatigue like that? Your eyes still can't be bothering you? You had an infection in your body, get over it. There's nothing wrong with you. They put you on meds now? Neuropsych... Are you depressed? Maybe if you started dating you'd feel better? Why do people feel the need to finish my sentences, when the fatigue hits and I slow at getting my words out. I thought I was doing great, I pushed myself back to work, I have good days, weeks even and then some bad.
It's frustrating at times. Do I want to be out, partying and meeting new people?, definitely. Do I want to being my A game to work and smash it yes. Do I want to join in group conversations yes. Have I tried to go on as normal not talking about pain or how I'm feeling. For sure!
How has everyone coped being back in the workplace? Any advice on how to handle the multiple questions and critisms or lack of patience from people when having a bad day. I find I'm becoming more and more introverted, and sometimes have a good cry on my walk home.
My job requires a lot of brain work, travel and long hours. I loved my job, I was only in this new role a few weeks before I got ill. But I tried to get into this role for years in a few companies.
