Why I'm not around much or responding to PMs

Post by miriam » Sat Dec 17, 2016 1:49 am

I just wanted to let people know that I'm off sick at the moment. My GPs think it might be a form of the shingles virus and have told me to ensure I take things very easy for a while, so I've been trying to stay away from my computer.

Will you please pass on this information to anyone that wonders where I am, or asks why I haven't responded to something they've sent. I feel bad if I've not responded and people have sent applications to review, but I've been told over and over that I've got to look after myself before having capacity to look after others.

Have a fantastic festive season. Good luck with your applications. Hopefully I'll see you here in the New Year.

Thank you for letting us know Miriam. Definitely wise words - got to look after yourself before you can look after others.

Take care, enjoy the festive break and hear from you in the new year.

Marry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone else too :)

Thanks for all the good wishes. Whilst the infection has been successfully treated, I've been left with intermittent earache and some minor issues with tiredness/dizziness that are still making it hard to fully resume my normal activities. But I'm back on my computer again, and hopefully I'll be able to do a phased return to work soon.
