Hi everyone. I'm now back to work after nearly 7 months off due to newly diagnosed RA and in may a new hip replacement. I'm feeling really fatigued some days. I am feeling very nervous about asking my new boss about a phased return. I had 1 for about 2 days and now I'm back to work normal hours. before I went on sick I had a nasty person in work that said to me a few times that we don't carry people in this branch. I feel sick to my stomach at the thought of it.
