It's now Thursday and I had to phone my manager to find out if there had been any progress about when I can go back to work. I also had to emphasise how important it was for her to provide specific information to enable me to finally get paid this month (which I should have received on 15th). I told her I was forced to borrow some money, but now I was worried about meeting my financial obligations at the end of this month. I'm so frustrated that I keep having to make all the running - WHY DON'T PEOPLE DO WHAT THEY SAY THEY ARE GOING TO DO?
I then phoned Occupational Health and got far more information from them. It appears that the Occy Health doctor isn't going to reply to my line manager until after he has seen me on Tuesday 26th. That's fair enough - why my manager couldn't tell me that I don't know.
Also, I heard back from the Blue Badge and DLA people today - my claim has been rejected by both. I don't think I've got any fight left to appeal.
I've had enough. I feel a failure all round at the moment. My family have told me to 'enjoy' the time off (because I'm supposedly still getting paid for it) but I feel useless right now.
Thanks for letting me rant (yet again!).
