Not likely, @lizardlady ...

Were there to be an emergency that required a quick, physical response, I wouldn't be able to handle or do it!

I doubt seriously I'd even be able to pass a DOT physical if required at this point!



And, you are so very right ... It sucks that these maladies blatantly rob us of so much we used to love and be able to do!

Meanwhile, here's a silver lining from just this morning on the farm ...

Fibromyalgia Check-In Thread #5 ...

It took a little doing for me to get myself over there and in a good angle for the shot, but I got it!

I'm so sorry Pfrog ...

I hate that you are in such a lousy situation.. Id certainly push for accomodations of some sort.. Can you take an FMLA time to catch a break?

((((( Pfrog )))))

Unhappy Re: Fibromyalgia Check-In Thread #5 ...

Thank you, [email protected] ...

The FMLA probably wouldn't even have to come into play, but yes, it's there if needed.

We're currently working from home at present due to Covid-19 shutdown and not slated to return for at least another two months.

After that, I've got a month of leave time stockpiled.

I also belong to a shared leave pool that would kick in after that.

Between those two I have enough paid leave to get me through until the Long Term Disability kicked in, but ...

I'd rather keep working so I don't lose my retirement with the university.

Only a year to go to be vested on that and it's heartbreaking to think I may not get there!

I'm sending the e-mail today so we'll see what happens from here.

I think it's going to be okay no matter what happens.

I'm just really sad that it's gotten to this point.

Not to mention the pfactor due to all the uncertainties!

Pfrog, what about the uni transfering you to a different position so you can finish vesting?

They are working on it as we speak @lizardlady & @~Christina

I sent the memo to my boss (he's a good egg) on Monday morning.

He called me by lunch the same day and was quite empathetic and supportive of my situation.

He also already had quite a few scenarios and solutions in mind.

He asked my permission to discuss it with other department heads in our division and the wheels are already in motion.

I'm trying to remain as optimistic as possible.

Y'all know what it's like living with chronic pain day in and day out and what a challenge that can be!

I sure do appreciate y'all's caring and concern too!

All the cards are on the table ...

Naught to do now but wait.

I have had a welcome break over the last few days from the extreme pain I am usually in.

the mornings have still been pretty bad, but after it's subsided not bad at all

all ready bracing myself for the next wave of hurt, but good for now..
