I'm not really sure where to post so apologies if this is the wrong place. I'm on maternity leave and I've just been diagnosed with an Eating Disorder. My care plan is likely to include a weekly psychotherapy session for about 6 months. Am I entitled to attend these taking time off work? Or should I just refuse treatment? In a school where bullying is rife, should I try and keep this quiet so I'm not discriminated against, or should I be open from the start? Will OH become involved and will they say I'm not fit to teach? I don't look like someone with an Eating Disorder and I'm worried my Head will not believe me. Should I ask for a doctor's letter? Sorry for all the questions...I feel really stuck as I know I'll get treated differently if/when school find out.
