That's good to read :). Work on your recovery and go back to work when you're ready.   :hug2:

Iíve been meaning to post since my work meeting on Friday but havenít been able to put into words how I felt about it. It went well, at least thatís what the employment worker thought. I found it really awkward and uncomfortable. My employer said all the right things but I felt so uncomfortable talking about stuff. He basically said that no one has ever doubted my ability to do the job, and no one has ever complained about my work or attitude. He said he thinks I overthink things and create problems for myself which arenít really there. He said if Iím worried about how Iím doing with work stuff or if I think Iíve done something wrong I need to ask people outright and not keep it to myself and then over worry about what people Ďmightí be thinking. I know that is definitely something I need to work on.

Anyhow my job is safe, and they are apparently looking forward to me coming back on 29th.

I am seeing my old recovery worker on Weds and CPN on Thurs. I need to talk to them about how I can cope better with asking for help, and how I can have more self confidence and self esteem.

Iím dog sitting my mums dog this afternoon so have had lots of doggy cuddles. Iím quite tense at the moment so pet therapy is helping me calm down.

Dogs always help. I am happy that your meeting went well. It does sound positive. We do tend to overthink things and think we are no good enough and that our jobs are not safe because of it.
now hand over the tea bags and we won't have any trouble.... :police:

You've done so well  :hug2:  overthinking is an easy trap to fall into, we all do it. It really sounds like you are respected and valued at work, they are lucky to have you x
