Re: The First 7 Days

Hello to all the lovely people on here old and new. It's been a year nearly since I last posted. I know it's time to try. It really doesn't get any better if we continue . I need to kick the false crutch out from under me as it only inevitably makes our lives so much worse.

Re: The First 7 Days

Hi Rainbow, I agree your boss has seen that you were poorly so that is a good thing. I wouldn't think you will get a warning surely now they have seen you.
