      Fellow survivors, I’m having a right c**p day out of an even worse week!
      I’ve been off work with anxiety and awaiting CBT for PTSD. COVID has extended those waiting lists to what feels like an eternity!
      My work know what happened to me and know that I’m suffering but they are treating me like I’m just a moaner!
      I feel like just giving it up but I need a job to feed my kids and pay bills. Even Occupational health say I’m unfit for work but work want me back in. Just fed up of it. Why don’t they understand I need time to deal with this? My mental health is just as important as their ‘operational needs’
      Has anyone else found the same?
      You try your best to come to terms with things and deal with it and then another obstruction comes in your way! 🙁

      Hello, is this what HR at your work are saying? This doesn’t sound right. Have you been signed off work by your GP? xx

      Hi Gettingtired

      I have been signed off from my GP for (detail removed by moderator) so far. I have added fears as I have lots of medical issues and I’m placed into several bubbles daily with currently 6 positive cases of COVID. My child Also has a respiratory issue.
      I have expressed my concerns via email which were only just replied to yesterday saying basically we won’t be changing anything regarding your hours or being put in different bubbles as it’s in the risk assessment that staff will accept going into different bubbles and it’s per operational need.
      I can’t cope with the aftermath of my personal incident and all this added stress at work.
      I do have a health at work meeting due with HR & manager but I don’t have anyone to attend with me and I’m thinking I’m going to get the same response as the email. X
