I have started my progressive return to work. It’s 1/2 day per week for 2 weeks, then 2 halves for 2 weeks etc. On the 9th week, I am “ supposed” to be back at my full time status.
I did my 1/2 day last Wednesday, came home and haven’t felt that exhausted in forever, it took me days to recover, so I hope this one goes better. Mind you I work emergency response, and we had horrific weather conditions, so this didn’t help.
I’m fortunate that my work, and most especially my boss is fabulous, no pressure, and I can do my hours when I choose. That is helping a bit. Just walking in was hard, and I haven’t been to the kitchen (where I was when I got the news), but I can’t escape it forever.
Now once I finally regain what I’ve lost there, and it’s a lot believe me, I think I have the week of vacation of dec 2017 that I never took , all of last years vacation to take , and then schedule this years, so I should have some nice time off.
Good thoughts are with you!Each day a baby step forward. Wonderful that you have such a supportive network at work; that must feel good! Hope that you continue to take one day at a time in this most difficult road. Remember to take good care of yourself!
So sorry about your daughter. What a horrible thing to go through. I'll keep you in my prayers and am happy to hear you are holding on and going forward through these difficult times. Good luck with your return to work.
Thank you everyone. I would not want anyone to ever feel anything close to this.
I am working full time. Life is more than difficult, but it can never be reversed. We continue we walk the path. I live with a mask on.
My best friend, my biggest rock, lost her house in a mudslide in April, heartbreaking, and so we have tried to do anything we can for them.
My husband bought me a trip for my 50th bday, and paid for her too. We are going to Las Vegas in August. She is beyond excited. It will do us both good.
