    I was off work last week as I had bronchitis, still not over it now, but I finished my antibiotics yesterday and we need the money.

    The 2 weeks before that I was off on holiday (those weeks were booked off in January this year), we went abroad for one of those weeks.

    So that's 3 weeks I've been off in all ~ the week before I was first off, I started getting MS, but it wasn't too bad, unlike now where I have it 24/7!!

    I work in a bakery/butchers. One side we make and bake pies and pasties, cakes etc, and the other side is the butchers. We also sell cooked chickens, ham shanks, cooked sausages, burgers etc....

    I don't know how I'm gonna cope for a whole day without feeling the need to cover my mouth and nose up! I know as soon as the smells hit me I'm gonna be gagging, but what can I do?!

    I haven't cooked anything at home for the past fortnight, I can't even bear to go into the kitchen here, so I'm dreading tomorrow!!

    Rant over.......and breathe...:)

    Poor you! Thst environment would make me chunder to. You might want to check your contract tho, as I have a feeling that if you are likely to be vomiting you cant be around a food preparation area etc. For health and Safety resons. My mate had to stop working in a kitchen when she was pregnant as she was being sick alot and even tho she wasn't ill, they still said it was risky.
