I’m having a nightmare at work at the moment. I’m between jobs (I technically have 3 jobs this month) and am still in the stage of my diagnosis where I am playing around with meds, aka, my dose is changing slightly every few weeks. Every time it changes, I have no clue how it’s going to affect me. I’m currently on ‘light duties’ at my current job. I feel like I can’t trust myself to do anything! I’m getting mad insomnia from the meds, as well as headaches and other fun side effects. Sometimes the crash is unbearable.
I think my employers are generally understanding of it and make any allowances I need, which is good. But my confidence is going down and I feel really useless. How do you cope when you are still looking for the right meds?
