    hi mum2jord :cheerup:

    avoid stress like the plague :shock: it's very early for you with the meds :? you say you are training, well trust me the world will NOT come to a grinding halt if you take time off :wink: be selfish, you need to think of yourself for once, stop beating yourself up, you are PHYSICALLY ill, this is a heavy duty illness, give the meds time and you WILL feel better :wink: :mrgreen:

    keep posting :ok:

    Hi there mum2jord

    I understand what you must be feeling and think that if you really can't cope then it's better to take some time off. I was working as a Nursery Nurse and things just got too much for me so I had to take time off. I haven't returned to work due to feeling so unwell and there's no way I can teach without energy - something that I've completely lost.

    The only thing is that if you're training then you'll probably need the hours to complete your course - am I right?

    Hope things work out for you. Let us know how you get on.

    take care smile
