~nestling~ Posted May 11, 2006 Share Posted May 11, 2006 So, I left her a note when I left early on Saturday, sick leave, as verified and ok'd by my GP. Due to efexor withdrawal, the anxiety, and not feeling safe once the library got busy. Today she phoned me at work..not sure why really...but I asked her, as I had in the note said that I could get a sick note from my GP if needed..she was willing to offer one, and I see her tomorrow.. And she was all O but you are better now, it is getting better, so on and so on and I tried to explain to her that its not a linear process, and what happens happens...I've told her many times how efexor is a nasty med to come off... and then she likened coming off an AD to quitting smoking (something she has herself done) now, I admit I've never smoked, but no way...I mean, I was really ill and paranoid and everything last week...this week I'm getting dizziness and sickness....more physically....and it is not a barrel of laughs in any shape or form... I'm considering asking my GP for a sick note anyway...just to show her that my suffering is real and valid and not a game in the park... I mean, I've had letter from OH, her talks with HR, the transfer (I'm just at the old place on Saturdays..) to show her what depression and anxiety (and PTSD of course but she just knows the depression) is like and has a tangible effect and isn't my fault....... Suggestions please....how can I explain to her???? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
