I wanted a place where we could get advice and support.
Great progress SOLB
I have a work HR meeting today - gulp
Sounds like a good idea to take it easy by eck, sleep is definitely more important than running this close to Sunday's little run.
Thank you Bear, good luck with HR. Are you expecting anything to come of it or is it just a box ticking exercise?
It's an "about to get rid of Bear" exercise
Knew it was coming and in many ways it's freedom so not all bad
Not technically as I haven't worked there long enough but affectively that. I do have the option to resign, not sure which looks better. Any thoughts peeps?
oops - effectively!
Saw the CMHT psych today for the initial appt - I'm now started on combination drugs
Oh bear I'm really sorry about work sweetheart, that's tough. I don't know about whether resigning or not is better, my gut instinct is that it's probably easier for you if you don't resign and are asked to leave on health grounds. I think if you took a gap in your CV to a new employer and said I was unable to work because of an illness, I've done X, Y and Z treatments and I am now better and have proved it with X voluntary role of so many weeks/months then that wouldn't be the end of the world from a employment perspective .... but I don't really know. It might be worth having a chat with the CAB, though I have to admit I have never found them particularly helpful. Maybe Mind's legal advice service would be worth a call http://www.mind.org.uk/help/advice_lines I once got sneered at by a CAB volunteer when describing why I couldn't share with the OCD and paranoia. He sneered and smirked through the descriptions then said 'and does this 'illness' have a naaaaame?' I burst into tears and walked out. I should have complained about him but it was in the middle of the homelessness stuff and I'd already had two breakdowns and I couldn't face it. Still wish I had, creep!! How are you feeling about tomorrow by 'eck? Is Moo still poorly? Oh Bear I am so pleased about the change in your medication, I know that's what you were hoping for. Hopefully you'll feel less tired and more connected to the world now. Which seems fairer given how hard you are working on your keeping bear busy routine.
Good luck tomorrow, ((by 'eck)) Sorry to hear your news, Bear - I hope the new med regime helps and you find something wonderful, just round the corner
In other news, the first step of the Grand Hobbit Plan has met with success - the future is bright
*puts pom poms next to the bed ready for the morning* Night night all
Morning By Eck
You'll be brilliant today
*waves pom poms about furiously, knocking her tea over in the process*
*passes Frodo some jellybabies to 'look after' *
By eck should be 40 minutes in now, hopefully finding her stride and grinning incredulously at being surrounded by the stamp of all the other idiots running shoes. GO BY ECK GO
