So I'm not going to go into what my anxieties are etc but I have anxiety and a bit of depression too.
I've been on sertraline for a few months now and I'm definitely feeling more 'normal, whatever that is?!
Iv been signed off work since the end of January as I physically and mentally am not up to it. I work with young children so I wouldn't cope at the moment. Anyway, I see my usual Dr about once a month and she has been seeing how I am and offering to sign me off if I don't feel up to it, which I obviously havnt. Well I last saw her on Friday 10th and she once again asked what my plans were and if I needed another sick note. Well I declined her offer purely because I have still had 10 days left on my current sick note, she told me to come back if I would like to be signed off.
So fast forward to today, after a hard weekend of multiple panic attacks and low mood I figured I wouldn't be able to return on the 20th. So I tried to get an appointment with my lovely Dr but found out she's on leave all this week. So I had to see someone else. This Dr I saw today was really rude asking what exactly my anxieties were and why I thought being off work would help?? So I explained and he told me he thought being off since the end of January is extremely excessive.... And would I like one more week off????? One more week? Was he being serious... Anyway I managed to get him to sign me off for 2 weeks. But I was just wondering, is being off work since the end of January excessive? So nearly 3 months?
