    Hi,

    I currently work full time for a care agency. In a normal working day I walk between 15-25 miles. I intend to join the Fire Service or the Navy at some point, and therefore can't have any permenant, long-term injuries.

    I sprained my ankle quite badly last week slipping on the ice, I couldn't really put any weight on it the first few days. I Ended up going the hospital, and thankfully didn't break anything but was advidsed by the doctor to rest it for 1 - 3 weeks with some light weight bearing as it was quite a bad sprain. He also advised I arrange some Physio.

    I had 5 days off with much bother from them. I was essentially forced to go back in before I felt it was better, and it still hurt when I went back 2 days ago.

    Anyway, it gave way this evening as I was headding up to bed and I figured it would be ok but it really isn't. It's just as bad as when I first done it so I'm really quite worried in the long term if I've incurred a permenant injury. I figure I need to rest it and get some physio done on it.

    So I phoned about an hour ago saying I'm going to be off etc, I know it's short notice but it's better than tomorrow morning. She was very funny with me, trying to guilt trip me and then got more agressive. We are short of staff, but that's by no means my responsibility. She then said she's going to put me off for 3 weeks and I need a doctors note or I wont get paid.

    I am absolutely livid, I feel like getting my doctors note and sending it in accompanied with my resignation. It's not my fault this happened, but I can't walk on a messed up ankle, and I can't risk my future career aspirations for 3 weeks work. The only thing I am worried about is the reference from them.

    Thoughts people?
