    Halfway through reading your post I was sure you had soiled yourself either at the flexing or the fainting part. Cheer up, could have been worse?
    I didn't say I didn't soil myself

    OK, but it actually isn't though. An ex colleague who was severely bipolar refused medication as he said it would kill him and self medicated with lots of vodka. Obviously he's not employed anymore. C'mon man, don't go down that hole.

    @JamboWayOh

    I feel like the only way out is to leave my family.

    I'm still taking the meds, maybe it's just a tough patch.

    I feel for you. I have vasovagal episodes as well, except mine includes vomiting everywhere when I go faint. Horrible feeling.

    I don't really have any funny stories to go with mine!

    They got misdiagnosed as panic attacks to start with, so at least this is less Daleish.

    Goat, I've already asked Addy for his shoes when his feet come off and Bob's vaping rig when he gets popcorn lung, have you got any good stuff I can have when you go

    C'mon now Dale/Chris prefers if you refer it as being a bit less Chrisish. You monster.

    That reminds me pes. Since you're having my shoes and as I'll have no feet, I'm gonna need a comfy chair. Just wing a bean bag my way. Preferably stuffed with moose testicles.

    That's a raw deal. So I've been Anne Wilkes'd. Gave up my lovely shoes and now have a stained chair. I feel like former user Goodform.

    First not-working Monday of my new 4 day week regime.

    Clearly the kids can cope with ONE more day at nursery before next week right?

    So far, dropped them off, done some weights, eaten a bacon sarnie and now settling down to some Assassins Creed in the man cave before lunch.

    Do need to sort out the dishwasher, car insurance and laundry before i pick them up at 4.30 tho, so its not all fun and games :-\

    I suffer - thankfully very rarely - from vasovagal (stop sniggering) syncope, which takes the form of the following symptoms:

    - sweats
    - whitey
    - tunnel vision
    - feeling of intense, I'm-Gonna-Die dread

    And finally, loss of consciousness and a Chris-like swoon to the floor, spark out. You regain consciousness after a few seconds.
    So essentially, you font geek so good?

    @whatfruitlivesagain

    Swung nothing, 20% pay cut!

    Also been there for 12 years now almost, so what i haven't got in salary rises for moving companies, i take back in a bit of work/life flexibility.

    Our MD is a new age kind of guy, out of 30 in London think we have 6 including myself who are 4 days, and nearly everyone works from home once or twice a week ad hoc.

    Its nice to be treated like adults. But equally everyone in my team delivers their projects on time, and puts the hours in when required.

    We follow a no boss thing. Itís quite nice as it gives me complete freedom of when and where I want to work.

    I rarely take advantage of it. I like routine, boring robotic routine.

    I get more done at home, with the PS4 on in the background and between odd DBFZ online matches, than I do in the office with every other cunt coming up to me and asking for help with something.

    I was thinking today I would happily take a pay cut of a 5th of my current salary if I could work a four day week. The owner would never go for it though he would take such an offer as a request for redundancy.
