Advice regarding work and deteriorated condition?
Hi guys, just joined and it's good to know there may be some support here, I'm a bit shy so bear with me, in short i was feeling housebound due to my condition and so applied for a position which fitted around my commitments 8 hrs a week and to cover a few extra hours at Xmas and Easter or holidays,I did explain at the interview that I could not lift heavy objects , since December my back,hip, knee + ankle has deteriated and I can not move as quickly due to mobility reasons, I feel i am having more and more left for me to do on my action plans and am fearing not getting it all done, the texts and messages left for me are becoming curt and abrupt and I am normally alone , work hard and get through my 4 hour shift, I am aching at the end of my shift but enjoy my little job as a bit of independance, however management don't get along with area management and because they can't .com i feel like pig in middle and that they're taking it out on me! It's also been suggested that because I didn't include my ailments on my form I'm in the wrong but truth is my condition has deteriorated since being there but I can still do my job as well as anyone else just not as fast as they would like as witnessed by the area managers my list was far greater than my work colleagues who did same hours, I'm wondering should I log my updated conditions to head office? Or would that attract unwanted attention to myself? Xx
