Hi All, I have been really tired and i cant believe i didn't take a break from work due to being concerned that i would get sacked for my attendance. My health should be first but i unfortunately have had no choice but to come to work, my manager even mentioned in my attendance meeting that his sister is a cleaner at a hospital who has diabetes and she never takes days off which i felt was completely unrelated and irrelevant to my attendance review meeting. - I feel diabetes isn't taken serious and i feel that my manager doesn't understand how my blood sugars being constantly high and not coming down affects my work life. my other colleague who takes insulin told me to go on insulin, which has never really helped improve my diabetes. - anyway. rambling, - what am i suppose to do if my blood sugars are high and not coming down? as far as work goes? if i take off a week i could get the sack. but even if i take a week off my levels won't come down in a week or a month. - I have not spoken to the union rep yet but i thought i would see what people think because i think i might just leave work and just go away for a while. i want to go to work and get my work done and feel good and not tired and fatigued due to my blood sugars.
