Hi all, I feel horrible at the moment and my current situation is really getting me down. I have a disability which I made my school aware of a few years ago when I requested a reduction in hours, which was granted. I have recently become more ill (I believe because of work) and have had a fairly short period of absence, from which I have now returned. My requests for simple changes which would help my health condition have been ignored for a while and I have had to keep on chasing and requesting. Things still haven't really changed. This has left me feeling really down as I wonder how i will continue to do my job. I have recently been informed by my Headteacher that some of my colleagues have been to complain about me because I didn't have as positive an attitude as others and wasn't pulling my weight with regards to physical things around the classroom (which is one of the things I have asked for help with). I have tried to be totally transparent with everyone about what I can and can't do and have offered to do other things to make up for the physical tasks I am unable to do. These tasks are things which aren't expected of all other teachers but that are specific to my role. The only things I have said that weren't overly positive were when I joined in a discussion which was already taking place, during which time a lot of my colleagues were being just as negative, if not more, than I was! I can only think that the people having this discussion are the ones who have complained about me. I am now left struggling with a disability, no real changes as such and with absolutely no-one I can trust. I don't know exactly who it was who complained about me but I have a good idea. It's such a horrible feeling. I keep trying to just smile and get on with my day, not talking to anyone except for the bare minimum about work as I don't want to get sucked into another trap of a conversation. I did feel like something wasn't right before I spoke to the Head but thought maybe I was being paranoid. In a way I feel slightly better to know that my instincts were right. I asked the Head who it was that made the complaint but he said he couldn't say. How do I get through this a) struggling with a disability and no real changes (I desperately don't want to be signed off again) and b) feeling like such an outcast with no friends and no one to trust. It's such a sad and lonely situation. Has anyone else felt like this? What did you do?
