An update following my HR meeting. They cannot accommodate me reducing my hours due to how busy we are. Too many poorly people out there in the community!!
What they have said is that I can work flexible hours, enabling me to incorporate the gym. So perhaps, a longer day with gym in the middle, or starting earlier and finishing earlier so I can gym after work, or working different days, or more days but shorter days.... I am going to do a trial week of each and see which suits best. So I suppose they are trying to help. It just won't help my general fatigue of a long day after a bad nights sleep.
I also saw my GP today about my lack of sleep. She couldn't really help, just said it was due to the menopause (too much information again!), and pain. She suggested herbal remedies, and taking analgesia before bed. So not much help really, could have told myself that!
For me gym is seeming more and more important- it does really help my coccydynia, and I know when I haven't done it. Trouble is, as I have said before, I need to be careful because I am getting knee pain now from so much exercise, and I don't want to injure my knees and ruin my one chance of helping my pain.
