Hi all

I just wanted to give you a more positive update.

I managed to pluck up the courage to speak to HR today. They suggested that there are options that they can look at. I am not going to take any steps just yet. My husband has his MS nurse comming to see him at home on the 8th. I cannot take any time of work, but my dad has stepped into the breach.

I have just got to keep my strength going just a little while longer. I am going to sort all this out. The next stage is to tackle my boss. I am going to take some time to get my plan sorted and present it to him with the help of my rummy nurse, OH and HR.

I cannot begin to thank all the kind wors and thoughts that all of you have passed onto me. I have only been with the site a little while but now I would replace for nothing.

Thank you all so much

Hi Susan

It's great to hear you sounding a bit more positive.On the work issue are you in a union at all? Mine have been really helpful with work related issues so it might be worth thinking about.

Take care

No I am not in a union but I am getting help from the union rep off the the record. i am also looking at 20 hours per week jobs - receptioist and the like so maybe something will turn up



Hi Susan, Glad to see your Dad is helping, thank goodness for him!

You sure are between a rock and a hard place, no matter which way you turn.

Best of luck with finding a comfortable solution you can all live with. Most especially, remember to pace yourself: Do something physically active for no more than an hour, take a sedentary break, read, post notes here or blog, etc., then return to something physical again. Stop before it hurts! All the best, Loret xx


I will and yes I couldn't do with out my wise yoda. He keeps me sane. I am going throughthe options with work although my boss is fighting it all the way. I am going to speak to my rummy nurse to see if she can help

I am having a PJ weekend as poirot is on the tv this weekend. I am also haveing a friday night treat a half glass of wine



Well there you go, you're all set for the weekend atleast.

Best of luck with the boss, just maybe he will be inspired to be understanding and cooperative! L. xxx


Susan, its great to hear you sound so upbeat. You give your boss hell and see how they like being on the receiving end for a change.

Love sylvi.xx
