I ve been off with stress and I have to say, I’m wondering what on earth I do. Doctor said I was unfit for work, and I was told I was entitled to my wage as aggregated service. Low and behold I’ve been paid statutory sick pay and this is now adding to how I’m feeling. I have spoken to edusupport, I am trying to focus on the positives but I’m finding it hard. All I want is to go to work and do my job. Hence lies the problem. Union are involved but it seems to be taking ages. Catch 22 got to wait for them and work to decide, can’t register or apply for teaching posts. Worried about financial cost ....... I know I should have thought things through better. I spend when I’m fed up. I’m not doing it now..... but I can’t cut my cloth any further. I’ve sorted all the bills etc i do a cull every 6months. I’m just feeling very low and it’s hard to talk to anyone as the money side of thing I’ve been stupid, just feel totally useless new year same rubbish.
