I am due to return to work next week, but am sufferering terrible with anxiety (postnatal depression Doctor has said). i can't sleep, stop crying and hate the thought of someone holding my baby. Due to circumstances my arranged return to work date is before the end of my maternity leave entitlement. Will i still be eligable to recieve sick pay. i have heard that they don't treat post natal as sickness!! Also to add to the pressure the school is not renewing my contract in Sept, so i have this to contend with. will i be eligable for sick pay still, even though i will officially be unemployed? i'm in a complete mess and don't know how to deal with this! please pass on any advice/ knowledge or information you have.
