I saw the OH Doctor for work today to see about getting back to work next week.
She was a bit reluctant to allow me to go back but agreed that a slow phased return would be necessary to see how things go. She has been so supportive and thankfully understands the problems encountered with inflammatory arthritis. She will send her report to my employer by end of this week.
I then contacted my employer who couldn't have been more obstructive if they had tried!! I thought they would have been happy that I was trying to get back into work and help with the workload again.
Eventually they agreed that I could start back on 3 days next week for a few hours and then gradually build up the time BUT they would have to discuss that further and couldn't guarantee it.
I feel as though you have to jump through hoops and I thought I was helping them by getting back. So frustrating and so stressful to say the least.
The OH doctor already has issues with how my employers are handling this and I think they may be getting a ticking off in her letter. I am so glad I have her fighting my corner as I will likely be getting a change of Biologic soon and obviously don't know what's going to happen with that.
I worry all the time that they will try the capability option to get rid of me. So much stress.....I need to win the lottery!! 😂
Sorry for the rant folks.
Seeing the consultant tomorrow too x
