Hi, I live in the uk I am 39 and have worked in residential homes for the elderly for 21yrs. The home I work in at present has changed from a normal residential home, to a registered dementia unit. To cut a long story short this has bought out my anxiety and i feel i can no longer work there.I have been of sick for about 5 months one due to anxiety the other is possible narcolepsy. Diagnosis still awaits. I have got to the point where i could chuck it all in. The only other thing I was interesed in was to be a foot health care practitioner, but with narcolepsy comes a thing called cataplexy, this is where you go weak on high emotion laughter anger etc and holding a scoupel would not be good. Occ health are trying all to get me back to my present job but i dont want to it makes me that anxious. I have always worked but feel I need a break for a while not to even think about what to do next yvonne.
