I've decided to resign from my job. My boss is being really unsupportive and the stress of trying to please her and not being able to just feels like a battle that's not worth fighting anymore, because I can't win whatever I do.
the only thing that's definately improved with the T3 medication is my hair! It looks great - Super shiny! At least that's something to be thankful for! And it does show that the medication is doing SOMETHING!
I honestly can't judge how much things have improved otherwise. I've come to realise that things only change very slowly and I can feel as though I'm getting better then start to go downhilll again. My symptom graph is like the himalayas! Or a jagged rollercoaster ride.
I've now been referred to a fatigue specialist and had my first appointment with her last week. She has insisted that I only work 3 days a week at least for the next 3 months and she gave me a real Paddington Bear Hard Stare and asked if I didn't think perhaps I ought to have a "proper break", well on reflection it does rather seem as though that might be the best thing.
At least if I'm not worrying about work or pushing myself there I might have a better chance of making steadier progress. At the moment I'm running on adrenalin when I'm working then just recuperating when I don't have to be there. Fingers crossed leaving will turn out to be a good move.
