I am a special education teacher. I have been injured multiple times; this past school year was the worst ever! That is why I ended up having surgery.
Anyway, my principal "promised" me a "good" class for this year...low and behold my assistants are keeping me informed and the class is real tough. Younger, aggressive kids who drop to the floor and hit/head butt without warning. There is a lot of restraining going on. I am not happy to say the least. It has only been six weeks since surgery, so I have time. I plan on explaining the situation to my OS when I see him on the 26th. of September (he will x-ray my neck then). I am real scared about going back to work when he says I am ready.
Attorney says I have disability case but honestly I can't think about not working yet..and I am exploring other options while I have the time at home.
I am just looking for people who have gone back to tough jobs and "survived". Thanks.
