Hi PJ & Melbi
Thanks for your replies to my earlier post. Good luck with your meeting on Thursday afternoon PJ - let us know how you get on!
You might want to check out these avenues for advice about where you stand with work before Thursday & anyone else who is having trouble work wise - honestly once you've been off work with depression / anxiety you'd think you had turned into a lepper or something - too much stigma! Anyway enough of me ranting....
You can contact Mind legal services Mon / Wed & Fri 2pm - 4.30 on 020 8519 2122 you get a 15 min call free advice or email email@example.com but it can take up to 2 weeks to receive a reply.
Advisory Conciliation & Arbitration Services (ACAS) are on 0845 47 47 47 If things are really bad they will send someone to your work on your behalf but this service does cost. Or you can always contact your local Citizens Advice which should be listed in yellow pages.
I think the most important thing to remember is that you are no less of a person for being ill, try to stand up for yourself, very very hard I know I'm there at the moment and am trying not to let it wear me down - we can't be railroaded we all have a right to return to work if that's what we want to do and the more of us that do it successfully the better it will be for those that come after us - we've been ill we are not insane!!!
Good luck to everyone Nicky Jane x
