This morning started with an appointment with my GP. I went to ask for a return to work form, but ended in a long conversation about the merits of not going back to work, but enjoying what time I have left. It was a good chat, if difficult. We talked about seeking retirement on ill health grounds – something I spent the rest of the day researching.
The doctor was incredibly supportive and encouraged me not to go back to work – difficult when you are the main bread-winner.
Having talked it over at home, I phoned the doctor back and agreed to continue the sick leave and start the process of looking for retirement. I have to pick up my sick note tomorrow which will be for 3 months. I’ve also emailed the boss and asked him to start the process.
Here begins a battle I think!
In other news – I got my new phone today! I love my iPhone and got sent an upgrade to the iPhone 5 with 4G – not that 4G will be in Devon anytime soon though! It’s lovely and the transfer was painless.
Have a terrific Thursday!
