      Ok that's good Tara.  Good luck.   Just get your rest.  I'm sure you will be fine.  I'm starting back 12:30 - 4:30 first 2 weeks starting March 30.   Omg never been a morning person so not a bad shift.  I came down with a cough, fever etc a week ago sunday, on antibiotics, feel weak I think its the flu also.  Will be glad when this passes probably just on time for back to work.  Got absolutely nothing done here, not much I can do sick have to rest.  Little scarry though, stopped meds due to this waiting for a reply from the doctor as to whether I take meds this week or not and with infection can't take meds.  Take care

      How did your first week go @ full time?  This flu/cough and cold has taken alot out of me, had this for 2 weeks, just hoping I pick up soon as I have to get back on cardio (so I have some energy) and hopefully weights soon.  Back to work for me tomorrow.  I will let you know how it goes.  Really tough to fight the fatigue of this illness but with me the sleep is the biggest problem.  I also have overactive bladder so I'm up fairly often at night going to the washroom.  Anyways, really trying to remain positive, will have to take 1 day at a time.  Take care

      Hi there my first week full time went ok must stay I was feeling tried on Friday afternoon but I made it. We sound very similar fatigue and sleep are hard for me too sometimes I can not sleep till the early hours and then it's time to get up. But get up I do get up! I ve had a cough for about 2 weeks now getting down a bit seeing consultant on Tuesday at the Hammersmith and I am due to talk about lowering Prednislone thinking he may say no because of this cough😕. Any how try and stay positive at least you have crack at getting back to work all you can do is try and don't beat yourself up about it. Make sure you let you colleges know if you need to take five it may be a little over whelming at first. Most of all enjoy it. Good luck tomorrow 😊

      Thanks Tara.  I have to take sleeping pills as 1 of the meds I took caused me to go into menopause (before my time) so on top of my already poor sleep pattern now I can't fall asleep.  Yes you have to get your sleep very important.  Maybe see your doctor about sleeping pills,I don't like them either I generally only take 1/2 a pill.  I haven't been on prednisone for a while, I'm taking methotrexate once a week.  Have you been on prednisone long?  I hope you feel better soon.  I got a fever etc and was on antibiotics 10 days, really upset my stomach, still have a dry cough.  This past Sunday 3 weeks since my cough first started.  Anyways, I have to stay active,otherwise no energy and my body so use to exercise for so many years.  Yes happy I'm well enough to go back to work but very tiring, and will be starting much earlier next week.  Thanks and I hope you feel better soon. Lots of people coughing at work, something has definitely been going around.

      Take care
