Hi all i was looking for some advice. Last year i was off work for two weeks down to depression and anxiety. It was last week that my doctor signed me off once again for a further two weeks due to the same issues which included havign panic attacks in and outside of work. The big load of all of this is brought on by pressure and stress from work. I am also a type one diabetic. The stress with work and not wanting to be around people and the pressure and the constant worry of panic attacks thanks to work has led me to have dangerously high blood sugar levels. I was wondering though if i go back to see my doctor tomorrow, do they have the power to sign me off indefinately rather than just a number of weeks or months?. All of this stress has been brought on by the workplace and i was hoping that the doctor would see things from my point of view and work is not the best place for me. Will my doctor completely sign me off due to this as it affects depression,anxiety and agrophobia. I can use that time to relax then and not worry about work which can lead me to building myself up again to look for alternative work. Please could somebody give me advice on this please as i am really worried. Thank you in advance.
