Admitting it....

Not sure where to start - I was unlucky enough at new year to contract swine flu and glandular fever back to back, was off work about 6-7 weeks and then went back. As I didnt improve its become obvious that ME/CFS has resulted. I was stubborn, pigheaded and stupid. Work placed me on a watch list for six months to try and control my level of attendance. I dragged myself through six months and three days before I fell over. Literally. The meds stopped working and the symptoms became nightmarish. It has taken 3-4 months to find medication that is working and get me back on my feet. Been back to work around 3-4 weeks now on phased return and had the personnel meeting from hell this week. The watch list has now been set at a year...

I tried to explain how much this is stressful and how difficult all this is but as you guys know - they cant understand. I was lectured for pointing out to the bloke that a year only passes quickly depending on the year but for me 2010 has been endless and I cant imagine how I'm going to manage the next year. I'm a single mom and I'll be honest I'm terrified I'm about to lose everything so I'm just here to see if there is anyone out there that knows how I'm feeling...
