Hi I’m new, I’m 53 and have thyroid disease, fibromyalgia, sleep apnea, I have also had a bowel resection in Dec 2017 due to endometriosis and I’m going through the menopause. My problem are people looking st me and not believing how bad I feel. I work full time and 3 weeks ago my work asked me to attend a meeting with two of the bosses, they keep double booking and now it will be six weeks before the meeting takes place, this year apart from the time i had to take due to extensive surgery, I’ve only had one day off for my fibromyalgia, I was overwhelmed with chronic pain, that’s when they suggested a meeting that now turns out to be a welfare meeting to discuss my Doctors letter. I’m so nervous, the stress is making me flare. How can I prepare or make them understand I’m ill everyday just some days I have to collapse in a heap. I’m getting depressed with it as it’s not just work 😔 thank you for any advice or support in advance xx
