I am going back to work on Monday after having a meeting with occ health. Nurse was very nice and she has put in her report that I should self assess what i can and can't do
I spoke to my manager who was also very nice to me but, she did say i should speak to my husband about me doing something else in other words i think she was telling me to leave but put it in a nice sort of way, she said i had to put my health first as my job can involve pushing students in wheelchairs, standing and walking alot. I can't afford to just leave and I dont want her thinking that if i say i cant do this or that she may think i just dont want to
I will do anything i am asked to do always have, i have never refused to do anything. I am also worried about what will happen if i am off work again :?: colleagues were supportive when i saw them and were pleased i was going back
they have suggested I cut my hours to help me and try to claim DLA but I cant afford to cut my hours and what if i get refused DLA :?: my doctor says i "only have mild OA" in my spine and doesnt seem interested when i mentioned pains in my elbows and finger. so if they want a report from him it wont go in my favour if it says "only mild". how much pain do i need to be in or do i have to be unable to move at all to be seen as having severe OA :?: I am nervous about going back as i dont know if i am going to manage or not but i will have a really good try sorry for going on at you guys.
