I am, which sucks but at least I can potentially nap at some point.

Yes, that is true! I've got a lady from remploy coming at some point, but I can't remember what time! Will have to phone her at 9am I think. I wish my brain would work properly!

OOps! But good plan. I write everything down. My calendar has a white board at the top which is super handy and I write all my appointments on it. Its also stuck to the fridge so I can't miss it as I rarely start the day without a cuppa.

That's a good idea! I have a wall planner up in my kitchen, but I often forget to write stuff on it.

I start work coaching on Friday with a psychotherapist who specialises in employment issues. The government have funded 10 sessions 850 pounds! I'm super grateful and I Know I've got to work hard. We're starting off with confidence building, I think!

There is however a flaw in my organisation- I know I have an appointment at the hospital today and I know where in the hospital. But I 0 clue what its for! Possibly physio or psychology?

It is a thing! If you thought it might be helpful for you, get in contact with access to work. They'll assign you a worker who will put a business case forward for funding. Might be worth giving it a go given how much you struggle with work.

Possibly but I'd struggle a lot to fit it in with the hours I work. Everything that may possibly be useful takes place in working hours-grr.

I'd rather get a bonus or a pony or someone to cook me tea.

That is frustrating.

A bonus would be nice! I got one this year!

Someone to cook tea for you would be fabulous! I would like one of those too!

I hate being penalised for working!

OOo lucky you. Mind I've had a pay rise and I haven't even been in my job for 6 months yet.

Hardly. Its more like I haven't walked out or taken 28 sick days yet. (not a random number 1 girl took 28 sick days last year- shes one of those who wished they were mentally ill)

Oh, I see. She wished she was mentally ill? How odd. Can't say anything about 28 sick days as I've just had two months off...

Yes but you were in hospital etc. Shes essentially hung over most of her days off or 'having a panic attack' but able to hold a fully coherent text conversation.

I suppose, yes. Oh dear. I don't know how anyone can have a coherent text conversation (or any conversation) during a panic attack. All I can think about is if I'm going to die!

Oh dear. That's a bit silly of her! I would be cross too, especially as you fight through a lot of pain to go to work every day.

I'm working 2pm until 4pm. Bit nervous but also kind of looking forward to it. I'm starting to dispense again on Friday, I think. That'll be a test!
