“At work I’ve been struggling with pain and inflammation, etc, from my autoimmune condition flaring up.

I’m a disabled nurse who is on immunosuppressant meds which are failing at the moment. When chatting with 3 colleagues about it they were all so lovely. One told me “it’s not your fault, nobody thinks less of you. If you have to take it easier just now then you do that. Look after yourself” and things like this. The others concurred.

It was such a lovely exchange I nearly cried. I thanked them. I really really needed that. I so rarely get support like that, verbalised to me from my colleagues 💕”

Big thank you to a nurse on Instagram who shared this story of the kindness of colleagues with me on our Instagram post last week.
