With the support of my family, friends and colleagues and professional association I have made it!
Despite being a special school the nature of my illness is a taboo subject. The irony of being asked for money for flowers for a fellow member of SLT who had had a fall whilst for 17 weeks nobody enquired about my wellbeing.
Initially a phased return in which during the early days I felt like a character from an old star trek episode who had landed on a familiar but strangely different planet.
Eventually back to full time.
It’s not been easy.
But I did it!
