I guess it went as well as it could have.
There wasn’t really much that either of us could say, since everything seems to hang on whether the Abatacept (Orencia) infusions get the Still’s Disease under control again and I haven’t even started it yet. The HR representatives were very pleasant but I was still warned that my employment was at risk and that the Stage 2 Hearing in September won’t be quite as informal. I think that will be the turning point really, as I will have a better idea of how stable my health is (or is not) by then, but whatever happens I will be fine. Even if I do lose this job, I will use it as a fresh start and an opportunity to move on to bigger and better things…
Che sera sera as they say.
One thing I did realise while I was there today though is how much I miss the kids; I love them all to pieces and seeing them go through what they do every day and still manage to wear big smiles has probably been my biggest inspiration in dealing with any of this.
Ps. I got told again today that I looked well – maybe I need to stop brushing my hair, wearing makeup and nice clothes? – That would scare people mwahaha.
