      Thank you Donna. Afraid not great and missing my job and the children I work with.

      Got a x -ray on hip this week but am confident its my knee and then await scan. All take time and work not being understanding at all . I could understand maybe if it was my fault but they left a huge breeze block in front of door . 😣

      Time I hope will heal x

      if you hurt yourself at work then its compo and they have to pay all medical expenses and make sure you get a letter from your GP stating it dont let them worry it happened at work so they are responsible for it stand your ground i worked in education pre primary and kindy for 15 year + and had to leave last year because of my fibro but i am still getting a income through my super as i had income protection that i didnt even know about only because i rang them my school did not tell me i even had it so at least i am not a burdan money wise at home i am with AMP ring your superanuation and find out if you have any sort of cover but you did it at work they have to pay you and take care of all medical expences wishing you all the best stay strong a stand your ground you did nothing wrong except hurt yourself at work stick to your guns hope your not to streesed thats the worst for us lots of love and support Donna ❤
