Went to see my manager today (fortunately it was a good day, just about pain free!)about returning to work after 6 wks sickness with chronic migraine (that have been happening for 9mths and are still happening), I have only had 4 consecutive pain free days since September.
My manager wanted to sack me as she felt I was not fit to be employed, but fortunately I had contacted Occi health only yesterday and said should I resign and she said absolutely not!
I pointed out my previous report from Occi Health said that my migraines should be classed as a disability, so that has been agreed. Not sure I like the label 'disability', but needs must as they say, and if it means I stay employed for a little longer then I will take it.
My manager doesn't want me back in work until I am completely pain free, not sure how long that will take, hopefully it will be sooner rather than later, the constant headaches and migraines are getting me down as well as the unpredictable nature of the migraines, never knowing what each day will hold.
