    I't's a tough one..
    If only there was a job where we could go on good days and stay at homes on bad... be perfect...
    Some people on here have very understanding employers others don't..
    I have been off sick since sep.. i have been looking at work from home jobs.. but it is very hard..
    Can work adapt to help you anymore??

    Work have to take note of wht occy health and doctor say otheriwse they could get into trouble.. don't feel like you are being pushed out..stand your ground.. there are a few on here going through similar situations regarding work... we will all be happy to talk listen and support you ...
    Have you though about advertising in the paper or shops to walk other peoples dogs.. or something similar??

    It's ok to cry.. lets out a whole heap of emotions...
    Hopefully your new manager may be more sympathetic and hep and support you a bit more.. they have a job to support you as best as they can...
    Maybe you could do some voluntary work with animals and then you will be able to see how you get on and wether the job will suit you.. if so then you can feel confident applying for a job in that same position..
    Glad you are feeling a bit better.. we are all here to help..x
