Hello one and all!
I had an appointment at the GPs surgery today as my sick note had run out. My usual GP who is up to speed with everything was away so I had to see a different doctor whom I had never seen before. He hadn't looked at my notes, so it was a case of 'what can I do for you today?' I gave him a brief outline and he decided then to look at my history on his computer screen. 'Oh yes right well I don't see you getting better anytime soon, so we'll sign you off for another 8 weeks'
Whilst I realise I can't work very well like this I just wish they would get on with a diagnosis and start treatment so I can get back to work. In 8 weeks time I will have been off work for 6 months which means my salary will be cut by 40%. I NEED to get back. I have a mortgage and bills to pay. This is all very stressful and I know stress doesn't help the condition!
Sorry, rant over ( for now anyway)
