Hi, i have just joined the forum and wondered if anyone could help me with a few questions. My concentration lacks what it used to so I apologise for any mistakes but reading through posts everyone seems so lovely anyway..
i am a registered childminder, I only got diagnosed in January after being fobbed off and having hormones and contraception to be blamed. Finally found a doctor who understood and was so kind and helpful. He offered to sign me off work but i wanted to continue as long as I could, this time they started in December, I had a 2 week break at the end of February and they were straight back, I hadn't recovered from the first lot and they were back. It's got to the point now where I feel like I am loosing the plot and I just don't know what to do anymore, I don't feel it is fair to the children I childmind for , or my own children for that matter, for me to continue to work at the moment, but it's not a job where I can just take time off, for me to close my business down it will take a long time to build back up, and I worry by then ill be ready to start the next lot. I have 5 attacks a day, 2/3 of which r in the night depending on the time I get to bed , my children still don't sleep through the night most off the time and I fear going to sleep as I know what's coming, then in the day I fall asleep stood up or I'm the middle of a conversation, I'm so confused n end up doing things like leaving the gas on , putting keys phones places I can't find. Put other halfs sandwiches in the dish washer the other day. My paper work is all behind and the daily reports haven't been done in ages, if I try to read something it takes ages and then it's like my minds gone blank .. Is the concentration/ confusion down to lack of sleep? Or is it a part of clusters?, has anyone been in a similar situation with work and been self employed, do I try n push through or admit defeat? Is there any hope of things looking up?
Thanks in advance
