Being Signed Off Work

Hi all,

Would like a little advice please.

Long story cut short - T1 dibetic for 16 years, just been diagnosed with an overactive thyroid and EVERY possible symptom, working 50-60 hours each week between a full-time and a part time job (this is non-negociable for the near future as I need the extra money). With all of this going on I am absolutly exhaused and have had 2 nasty colds and a urine infection in the last month from the exhaustion. I want to visit my GP to see if I am able to be signed off for a couple of weeks so I can sort out my health and just take some time to rest. Is this a valid reason though? I'm not just being lazy or simply 'tired' - I'm literally burnt out.

Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you

I’m a GP and would be happy to sign a patient off work in these circumstances.
