how many working days can you self certificate ? When I went to the doctors this morning, I think I should have said yes I have felt like self harming :rolleyes: I know whats in my head and I know when I feel like I'm going down again even tho I still feel like I'm skiving I also know if I'd gone back today I wouldn't have been able to cope, just going to the doctors was enough of an effort, let alone sort out queries all day and catch up with a backload :rolleyes: She did give me some phone numbers for counselling tho, all different categories, when I looked o the list I felt like saying can I go to all of them :lol:
Anyhoo, does anyone know ?

Seven days usually.

Get to see a counselor, they can work wonders.

St John's wort really helped me as well when i was down.

Fortunately life is all good now, so things DO get better.

as he said!! seven days!

and get to a councillor!!! Have a look to see if there are any private funded ones in your area!! It may be quicker than going through the doctors!! And lean on ure friends and family!! Thats what they are there for! :hug:

my sis suffers from SAD and used to have days when she couldn't even get out of bed because she was feeling so down. She has since started using a special lamp which provides her with a kind of day light emissions and increases her endorphin levels. Might be worth a try....i'll get in contact with her and find out where she got it from.

don't let the bastards grind you down...good luck. :hangloose

7 days ! I thought it was only 4 I've been off 4 today not including the weekend, is it 7 working days or consecutive ? I don't really care about the money, I'm not going back until I feel ready, I'll take it as unpaid or hols or whatever.
