    The upside to this for you is so evident. It's a shock to get the bum's rush ( I know! ) but that will wear off - given a few years. But now you can really focus on important things.

    I do think the fact that you van sleep in was probably your body reacting to all the stress and knowing you don't have to cope with work at the moment.

    Give yourself time and let your body do what it needs to, just as your husband is doing- what he can when he can and then recuperating.

    Oh Marshall, I am so sorry that they have done this to you!

    The same happened to me, I wasn't allowed to go back and wasn't allowed a proper goodbye, so have never had closure.

    It is a truly, truly awful feeling and difficult to overcome but you will in time.

    I am so angry that this has happened to you. It is utterly despicable!

    Oh dear, I am so sorry. Your reactions are normal in the circumstances.

    Oh dear, I am so very upset for you.

    I am in exactly same position as you - have left with no goodbye - 21 years service - much I could say but won’t - I too am sleeping for England - no thanks, no cards, no funny stories. Sending best wishes to you
