Nice to hear that you got back to work. Any that you obviously love your job too.

It reminded me of a time a few years ago when I was diagnosed with cervical cancer and had to go in straight for an operation (am fully ok now). I work in a large office of about 300 staff. When I went back to work a number of people couldnt make eye contact with me and smiled pitiful smiles at me. I later found out off a friend that a rumour had started that I had cancer and was going to die. Its like chinese whispers in our place. At least kids have an excuse eh
Diagnosed 2005.
 
Current medication  -  infliximab infusions, ranitidine, ferrous sulphate, Vitamin B12 injections, asacol

Congratulations on starting work again! It does sound tiring, but it must feel great to get back.
I'm supposed to go back to work in a month, and, even though my job isn't as cute or rewarding as yours sounds, I can't wait to get back to "business as usual."
