Well I have waited to continue my saga of work, and was hoping to be able to share some good, positive results - sorry, that will have to wait!
My union solicitors have basically informed me that way that I am being treated is acceptable, that the head teacher has been accomodating, I should be grateful for having a job!
So I am now waiting to have my contract drawn up, my hours will be 8,30 am to 1pm and more jobs have been added to my job description! I fail to see how this is fair, but while yes, I am lucky to have a job, I am wondering what the long term effect will have on me. I have tried to be positive, kept the tears for home, and have kept my GP and RA team informed - they have all been amazing and like me, completely godsmacked at the lack of compassion shown.
I still love my job, and as I have said before, the teaching staff have been incredibly supportive and are having a really hard time under his domineering demands - I am lucky its not just me that is suffering at his lack of care, compassion and empathy - but how he can get away with it is beyond me.
I have been looking for jobs, but with my condiition in the balance again, I am thinking it will be best for me to plod along, do what I can and leave at 1pm - at least I can come home and rest, do some exercise and look for another job!!!
I thought having RA was bad enough, but this tops it all.........
Still I have been striving to be posiive and am remembering 'The Serenity Prayer'
I am not very regious, but sometimes knowing that this is not my fault, asking for guidence makes me feel like I am not so alone...........................
Take care everyone, and thanks again for all your comments, they are invaluble.
