It worked, thank you

After my tearfull blog on Tuesday, I thought I would give you an update. After all the fantastic advice and support I got on here, I plucked up courage and on Wednesday went to see HR. I asked if I needed to inform them in writing that I had RA and did they need to add it to my records. On Thursday my line manager said that I would be able to change my hours and go to three days a week, if I could just give her two weeks to change cover.

Call me cynical, but is that too much of a coincidence???

I would not have done anything at all without the advice I got on here.

Gentle hugs and painfree wishes to you all xxx
