8 months of not working and spending waaaay too much time with myself
But, where do I stand rights wise actually?
I mean, my work has been brilliant really, they paid my wage every month, no hassle, and after a visit to the citizens advice bureau I found that in fact they didn't have to do that at all, they could just pay less after a couple of months and after 6 months, well, then it could be just as well via the benefits system… so to me they were fine. Very fair indeed.
But, it’s added stress.
I contacted them at least once a month with an update. but imidiate manager told me at a later stage that maybe I should’ve called more often, but at the same time he also understood that especially in November/ December when everything went a bit “dark” that I wasn’t in the best state of minds for any communications.
When I finally did go back to work, it surfaced that I was way to stressed and in my head about the return itself, but more of that later…
