The picture doesn’t give away my story. So I’ll tell you about it.
I’m sat on the bus headed home and part of me is smiling and the other part is a little in disbelief.
Today I had a meeting and instead of walking out feeling how I thought I might. The outcome was far different.
You see weeks ago, and I do mean weeks I made the decision to apply for flexible working and to look at working from home.
It was rejected and my heart sunk.
You see I applied because my condition seems to be getting worse and not any better.
The slog to work on the bus then the walk causes me intense pain and has done quite a while. I tend not to complain because I accepted this was my lot. But add that to fog periods and exhaustion I realised. Something has to change.
You see I don’t just have Fibromyalgia. I wish it was as simple as that. I say that with jest as there is nothing simple about it.
I have Stenosis in my spine. Currently around two sections of my spine. It was found in 2014 and has been getting worse.
It has the potential to lead to very serious issues for me and I’m a little head in sand but pulling it out fast now.
I’m seeing a consultant on 23rd April who is going to look at what’s going on etc.
So working from home made sense to me as it would cut out the 1.5 hour trek to work and home again and the pain I experience as the walk from the bus is seeming to get longer and longer.
So today I had an appeal meeting and it’s been granted under a trial.
So I’m both happy and in disbelief right now.
The benefits for me about my life balance will be amazing.
