    I’ve listened to you and my friends and family and am having this week off too.

    I’m a teacher and although I only work two days I don’t think my brain is ready or my body yet. 🙂
    Walking the girls to and from school is tiring but I’m feeling better for being back to normal… Almost

    That seems more than sensible, you’ll know when the time is right. I think I had 2.5 weeks off then did a week part time before going back full time. But it depends what you do, I was sedentary/ office based at the time and I didn’t have a long commute, I probably could have gone back a little sooner. But if someone has physical demands in their job or if there is a lot of travel, they’d probably need longer. There’s no right or wrong really

    I think you have made a very wise decision. Teaching is a tough job at the best of times (Husband and Daughter are teachers) so you need to be totally able, both mentally and physically, to get back into it.

    You will get there. Just in your bod’s own sweet time!

    You are absolutely right Chris – there IS no right or wrong way. Only the way our bodies choose. 😉

    I’m glad your having another week off . This time is about being a bit selfish and allowing your body to heal , teaching is hard physical work your on your feet all the time up and down class rooms and if your still tired get your GP to sign you off another week x

    Everyone is different as you can appreciate. Plus it will depend on your age, job and home life!

    I was lucky that I didn’t have any small children or a full time job so I was fine after about 6 weeks. I then got a bit tired around the 10 month mark. However, my body had been working SO hard for me (losing a stone a month) that it took a ‘voluntary, self imposed holiday’ and slowed right down for a whole month. No weight lost and crippling tiredness.

    After that, it was all systems go again. I struggles a bit with the menopause (still do some days) but I think we are often too quick to blame our wls for everything.

    I’m glad you didn’t go back too. You listened to your body and put it first – always my main advice/tip. The second bit is ‘be kind to yourself’. Your body is working triple time for you so make sure you give it a break every once in a while or it may go on strike!
