Hi Charlie, what a nightmare! You're doing so well hanging in there. All you describe is exactly how I felt. It's horrible when you don't feel supported at work. Sounds like your manager has issues of her own she maybe needs to address. Luckily my manager had a good knowledge of Fibromyalgia so understood when I discussed my lack of concentration etc. Yes I've done all that - writing things down, extra prep so I didn't forget anything. Fascinating how you adapt to be able to cope and function isn't it? I thought I'd really miss work but I don't. Perhaps when I'm on benefits it will hit home lol.

Wow Charlie, you sound like a brilliant nurse who is not valued enough. Perhaps a change of job will boost your confidence and get you away from your manager, she sounds like a nightmare! You're still on your nursing journey, don't give up believing that :)

I love community nursing, my patients and my team see my passion, so it doesn't matter that my manager doesn't. She's not a nurse.

I got a message from my rep today, asking me not to resign, and to hold the trust account. I called and left messages for occ health on the day I was diagnosed on 20th July. Four times since. I've still not had a response. It's such a shame, I had high hopes that they would support me, but it's not happening.

I'm feeling miserable and sorry for myself, I'm not the high flyer I used to be, and I don't much like this new version of me.
