Well after a couple of weeks trial and error I have decided to go back to work. I promised myself just to do a couple of days but last week I did 5 days and felt fantastic.
I really hope I have turned a corner this time now that I have started c.a.t. therepy plus the combination of Latuda and lithium. I am currently symptom free. No noise no paranoia no intrusive thoughts.

I thought I felt ok last year when i tried to return to work but in reality i was not.

This time it feels different.

Hi Fazza,


I wondered how you were doing. I wish you well for your recovery, in work.

Just tred the water very carefully, re the mental health team pshychartry doctor, you know how they reacted to your interest of work, the last time!


Other than that, I do wish you well.


Have a good working week.

I'm glad you are mental health sympton free.

Go for it bro.

I have been working over 6 months now, after 7 years on benefits. I found it really hard at the start, it is a lot easier now, and I am starting to enjoy it. Some of us just need to work and some don't. That is the way it is. I realised I need to work. You can do it bro.

Thanks all. I have been back a little while now just going in and speaking to others in work. I then started a few tasks like taking calls. It felt great logging back in to the system at work, The old username and password and my identity card all felt like I have achieved a small victory.

I have really missed it. My manager has been fantastic and has kept my job open for me.

For now..................I'M BACK
