I just need to get this off my chest.
I graduated last year and I'm now working as a dentist.
I have already failed VT due to being off sick for 6 weeks and I'm struggling to cope on my extra job. I have been warned very sternly that I can't be off sick.
Everytime I eat I get horrendous stomach pain and nausea. I have chronic stomach pain and diarrhea. I also have an auto-immune disorder. This massively interferes with my job as I feel unwell about 80% of the day.
I used to cope well with it but recently, I think with the added pressure that I cannot be off sick at all (I wasn't even allowed to attend my hospital check up!), I am finding that I can't cope. I'm constantly anxious, I don't even want to leave the house anymore, nothing is enjoyable because I'm in pain all the time, or when I'm not, I'm worrying about the next episode.
Every lunchtime I struggle to eat, have no appetite, and end up spending my lunch hour crying in the car.
I don't know what to do anymore. My life is literally falling apart.
Just had to get that out, sorry.

May i ask if you declared this before you started working? If you did i think its classed as discrimination (dont quote me on this), if not certainly the situation is very unfair. I would seek advice from your union rep or occupational health, you have a right to seek medical care. See what they say and hopefully you feel better soon.
