    Welcome to the community @trash_can :) Thank you for joining us! 

    I'm sorry to hear that you've been quite unwell, and that you don't feel your doctors are interested in helping you feel better. Have you sought a second opinion? 

    In terms of returning to work, have you had a meeting with anyone about how you can return to work safely, in a way that works for you?
