in my head
well i don't blame them it true
when i was working i had repeated long periods of sick leave this was at the beginning of my `psychiatric career`
when i returned to work once another member of staff said `we didn't know what to expect but you're ok` i mean did she expect me to run around brandishing a knife
i got very little support to carry on working and they finally retired me on grounds of ill health in 2000 it would have been dismissal if it hadn't been for my union rep arguing for retirement
and i was supposedly working in a caring profession
