Hope you are managing to keep warm and comfortable. Apologies in advance for my little rant but I just need to vent.
For anyone who has been following my posts recently, you will know that my health has been trixie of late. I was unsure if I should return to work after 4 weeks off and, despite some fellow community members advice to stay home, I did return to work unable to shake the guilt of not working. Since being back I have been so utterly bored! I work in a teaching theatre and support 4 lecturers with the creating of theatre sets. A lot of the job is practical which I can't do at the moment but there is still a lot I can do to support the department, however, I feel like no-one wants to let me do anything. I send an email out every day to ask about the schedule and assistance needed for the week and I get blanked by everyone. In our weekly meeting, the lecturers don't even look at me they only address my colleague (who does the same job as me). It is really frustrating, I feel I don't exist. I am left in the office with nothing to do trying to create work to keep busy.
It can take all my effort to get up in the morning, get the swelling in my knee down and commute to work. (I have two torn cartilages in my right knee and am awaiting surgery). I feel I could cope a little better if I was going in for a reason otherwise what is the point?
I am leaving the job in a week and a half to start a less physically stressful job as a designer but I was keen to work out the last of my notice as opposed to just taking it sick but I'm so annoyed I wish I had just stayed home.
