Hoofbeat Posted January 17, 2014 Share Posted January 17, 2014 Hi I was just wondering how other members knew they were ready to return to work (even if it was phased return)? It's now 2months after my brain haemorrhage (cause still yet to be determined but thought to be a cavernous angioma and just a one-off). I'm still having headaches, but they're becoming less frequent, although occasionally they are still bad). I would say physically I have more energy than I did a month ago, although I do still find by the end of the afternoon I'm getting tired. I still have quadrantanopia (quarter of my visual field missing); this might be permanent. I'm awaiting my follow-up MRI and this, along with my next neurologist appointment, is anticipated to be in Feb/March. However, I'm starting to get a little restless, and am wondering whether at some point in the next month or so I should start doing just a couple of hours of work from home (providing my employer is happy). My work is testing computer software, so is both quite taxing and visually intense. I don't yet know if I'm up to doing it or not, but equally I feel like I'll never know unless I try. I'm going to see what my GP says when I see him on Wednesday and also speak to my Headway advisor to get their thoughts. Am I crazy to even think about returning to work so soon (especially before my follow-up MRI)? I'd really appreciate hearing people's stories - how did you know when to try going back to work? Do you wish you had waited? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
