Feeling Anxious!

Recommended Posts

Today I had a doctor appointment to talk to my doctor about returning to work. he authorized me to return to work on the 7th by my employer hasn't let me return yet, i was given restrictions by my doctor and they have asked for him to be more specific every time he rewrites them. I have been feeling like im being forced to quit, every time i talk to my managers i have a mini breakdown. My doctor told me to really think about what I want to do before i turn this letter in that he wrote for me today. Do you really want to work for them if they accept this letter? Is it worth the emotional toll its taking on you? I have been looking for another job and have an interview on Monday, but I really do want to quit and be done with my current employer. I just cant believe this is how they treat someone who has been there for seven years and did so much more than I had to since the beginning. Then when i was about to leave my doctors office, my doctor mentioned that he and his wife would be leaving the practice soon because he was offered a job with the state department and he will be leaving in just a few months. Amazing opportunity for him and his family. but hes been my doctor for over ten years!!! I feel so sad and anxious and scared that I have to find a new doctor, he was the first doctor that I actually liked, it probably didn't help that all doctors that I had as a child never thought anything was wrong with me and he was the first doctor to actually believe there was something wrong.

I do sympathise, when one finds a good doctor it can take a long time to really build up that relationship.   I live in the UK and my own GP that diagnosed me left shortly afterwards.  The doctor that replaced my GP was so much younger (she looks so young too!)  and I was concerned but you know what - she has been absolutely brilliant.  All my fears were completely unfounded. Try not to worry about your doctor leaving, I know it isn't easy but you may find someone who is just as good, maybe even better!  Maybe through this site someone might be able to put you onto someone?  Maybe your own doctor could recommend someone?  I am sorry as living in the UK I am not really sure how these things work in the USA.

 

Regarding the letter, I do always think that it is good to 'sleep on it' - and to really think about things first as your doctor advises.   With the time difference etc I imagine it is night time as I write this in the USA now so when you read this it will be the morning.  I am wondering, how do you feel about the situation now?

Thanks, Iv'e been thinking it over and talked with my sister, and she agrees with my doctor too, I am still thinking of quitting. My sister said I should go and tell them today so i can be done and over with it and focus more on myself and getting better which is what i need right now. I really have felt like I have been done with them since December. I took a short term disability leave because of the stress of the situation and when I returned they told me I couldn't come back to work until they figured out what to do with me hence the numerous letters by doctor has been writing since the beginning of the month. I think it will be beneficial to my health and my life to leave my current job. As to the doctor situation I will continue looking to find another doctor. My doctor isn't sure who's taking his place at his practice just yet, they are still looking to find someone, and I don;t like the other doctor that is with his practice.

It is good that you have sounded out your sister, too.   I really hope that everything goes well with your interview tomorrow.

 

In the meantime, as I said, try not to worry about your doctor.   Hopefully the new person will be appointed before your doctor leaves so you won't need to worry about the other doctor.

 

Take care.
