DawnS Posted June 26, 2014 Share Posted June 26, 2014 In the very early days, getting stuck so badly that I was literally physically unable to move was a regular thing, daily at least. This faded over time (I'm 2 months short of the 3 year mark) but is back with a vengeance this week. I am currently off sick with fatigue - this is my 9th week and I'm due to return next weds. Today, I have been barely able to move. I can't think. There are things that I need to get done but I have no idea where to start. After a while, I realised I needed to apply the methods used in the early days...break it all down into tiny chunks. After emptying the dishwasher, I decided the ironing should get done. I told myself that getting the ironing board set up is all I have to do for now. I went to the cupboard but the ironing board wasn't there. I found it in the living room, set up and the iron already on. I have no recollection of doing this! A thread was loose on a t-shirt, I went to the kitchen for scissors. There was an apple on the side that I'd left for the birds, I cut it up and put it outside. Then realised I hadn't watered the greenhouse this morning. after watering it I came back in to find the ironing board sitting with a t-shirt that still needed a thread cutting off. I am driving myself insane I can only imagine that I am thinking about my imminent return work so much that anything else is essentially multi-tasking and I can't do it. My partner wants me to take more time off. It's true that if I go back next week it would only be a reaction to the fact that they were not happy with the length of my last sick note. One moment I am concerned that I will lose my job, the next moment, I couldn't care less. My GP thinks I need to change my role but that I am perfectly capable of working. I don't know what to do - go back next week or ask for more time off. HR were supposed to write to me 5 weeks ago but I've heard nothing. I don't know what to do and I hope it's ok but I decided I'd like to hear from people who understand, so here I am x Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
