I have been off work since September 2015 with a bad flre. During this time I have become increasingly depressed and I am being treated with antidepressants. I am also taking Methotrexate 15mgs weekly which is beginning to take effect, and will be increased to 20mgs in the next few weeks. I have seen HR and my manager at work regularly and they have been very supportive, however, I am unsure as to whether I am able to return to work and my GP has signed me off until the beginning of June.
I am 58 in May and have worked all my lifr. I am finding it difficult to make a decision about returning to work which is stressing me out, and I am unclear about the implications of ill health retirement.
Has anyone else been in a similar situation?
