This is going to be a real big test for me. I still am not sure that they appreciate the severity of the situation even though I have been off for over three months now.

I know I shouldn't but I can feel myself getting anxious about the prospect of meeting up. I hope I tell them exactly what I want to and don't mess things up.

I sincerely wish you all the luck in the world mate!

Hey PB,

I just wanted to send you a good luck wish for this afternoon. I hope things go well and you are able to stand your ground when talking to your employers. I can't imagine how you are feeling at the moment. I hope you manage to find something to distract you in the meantime.

Take care and Good luck. X

Thanks Jo.

I am frantically surfing the net. My concentration is not the best at the minute and those relaxation techniques I am sceptical about aren't workinbg the best!

That went a lot better than I was expecting. I ended up taking my dad with me and afterwards he said how well I put my points across and how well the whole thing went.

My work have said to me that I can basically have a clean sheet and come back and do whatever I like (within reason of course).

They added that my phazed return to work would start however I would like it to - from just one day a month if that is what I choose.

I told them that I obviously need more time, so they said they will leave me be for the time being and be in touch again in a month.

Feel very positive about the whole situation now. :)

That's great to hear - it must be a weight off your mind - I hope you can now focus on recovery rather than worrying about work. Take care :hug:

Well done!

My work never requested a meeting, even after 2 years - I think they felt a tinge of guilt regarding my situation.

The whole thing has brought around a big reversal in how I feel. Things are going good now. I even managed to go to the pub last night - the first time I have been out on a Friday night since October.

Don't be so hard on yourself SG. And I never said anything about conducting myself well. ;)
