hi everyone, that's me finished my 1st week back at work(OK, its not a full week - I only work a 3day week,thank goodness).
I went in on Monday and my body felt very loose and relaxed which was lovely but when I went out at lunchtime I realised I was getting quite stiff. By evening my husband was dismayed to see me rising from my chair with difficulty and rubbing my lower back. Tues and wed were no worse but certainly no better and today I've done nothing like what I used to could do on my 1st non-work day. Not sure if my time off will restore my energy levels, I hope so but I doubt it.
That's 2and a half weeks now that I've been on mtx and so far so good although I've noticed at work that I found it harder to multi-task easily and to keep focused. I've not yet had my back-to-work interview but I've got my appraisal next week so I'll be asking about an OH referral as it was mentioned a couple of months ago and then silence. I also want to try and find out what he knows about RA and vasculitis and that he understands I'll have good days and then maybe have a few bad days. He needs to be aware it's not a situation where I'll take medicine and then get all better.
Tomorrow, me and OH are aiming to do some clothes shopping for me as I've lost quite a bit of weight and some of my clothes - shoes - are too big for me now.
