Back at work

Done it !

First day today since January. Not the ideal time because I stupidly fell downstairs last week. A sprained ankle is not as bad though as the last flare.

Started  at 8am. Manager rang at 10.30 and asked me to go up to the office for a back to work interview. Asked if I had managed ok then said she has to do a phased return. Work an hour less today then off tommorow.  Got to ring another manager to see what I have to work the rest of the week.

Well that's me back. Found I was very stiff from sitting and struggling with parking.

No real help but I am working with physio and going to OT next month.

Time for a nap now. Shouldn't but want to work at football tonight. My colleagues there are brilliant look after me and have missed them.

  • Thank you eveyone for your replies. I was tired had to walk the dogs before doing my eving little job. Did manage a nap in betwen though. Fell into bed last night I was stiff and sore. My foot was burning and itchy.

    Mentally felt happy though and pleased to feel back into the fold. Inpatient with myself because it was hard work walking around and felt like an old lady.  But I WILL get there with physio and going to go to a exercise G.p referral at the sports centre. 

    Spoke to a manager today re my hours for the week and this time they have been helpful. Just parking which is a problem.

    Hope you all have a good day and enjoy the sunshine.
