adam Posted July 22, 2009 Share Posted July 22, 2009 Hi All Advice and opinions would be wonderful, cos I havent got a clue what is for the best! I have been off work since my SAH in January this year, have just passed my 6 month anniversary and to be honest I'm getting a little restless and need to feel I am being useful. Financially whilst the extra money would be great (i'm on half pay at the moment) it isn't vital and my wife is happy to continue to support me. My boss at work is a dinosaur and to be honest is next to useless at this sort of thing, he means well but!! I have discussed work and he tells me he has a project he wants me to undertake starting in January. Before my SAH, he agreed that I could work from home Mon & Friday, be in the office Tues-Thursday and they would fund the overnight cost (I now live 150 miles from work) I think he is going back on that and the fact I have had my licence rescinded as I have been diagnosed with epilepsy post SAH. He has made it clear I need a driving licence to undertake the project. I'm not sure why it is only is a project overseeing the design and implemention of a new IT system. I may need to visit sites occasionally but there are such things as trains and taxis. I am also concerned that post SAH, I am not as effective as I used to be, I had a senior role as the companies operations director, it was very challenging and I'm not sure I will be able to do it as well as I used to, even after a back to work programme. I will not get my licence back for at least 12 months, I can do a lot of my old job remotely and could probably get away with visiting the office once a week, or even once a fortnight. I now have a poor memory, get frequent unexplained adrenaline surges, and have difficulty concentrating for extended periods. Last night we went out for dinner and I couldnt even remember which hand to hold which bit of cutlery! pathetic hey! Anyway, what do you guys think? I know I am not capable of returning to work full time and being as effective as I used to, but I also dont want my brain to rot away, it has been damaged enough already! Look forward to hearing from you all Thanks Adam I am aware that some of the issues are probably a lack of confidence Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
