I know its been a while! I do hope you are all OK!
Well I have been struggling over the last few months with my new treatment, and at Christmas I really felt I had turned a corner. I had two weeks almost pain free - the longest time in 18 months!!!
Anyway, my 12 week trail period with Cimzia came to an end on 3 Feb, and I was called into my head teachers office to ask me how I was. I told him that was still waiting for my consultant to advise me. I am suffering from bullying and harassment at work and now have my union and OT involved.
My job is not safe, and I know that under DDA I should be covered, but schools have their own agenda. My consultant has made it clear that I am not to do first aid due to infections and physical strain. I have to give the letter to the head teacher next Monday.
I was signed off due to stress last week, and have seen a councellor and am on anti-depressents - I hoped injecting and taking numerous tabltes was enough, but it seems I am to be punished more!
Sorry to go on - I just have cried so much, I love my job and it gives me purpose and a reason to get up and get going, but I have started to ask myself 'is it worth it?'
Thanks for listening
