Hello I am Blue Iris and I joined here today. I do have asthma and was diagnosed with it
in the early 1990's. As with everyone I have had my ups and downs with it but the last 8 years I have had more downs.
I found out at work a few weeks ago that if we have Mondays or Friday off work we will get
a discipline. This has come about because some people were always taking these days off and apparently everyone who has these days off now gets punished.
I said that if I have an attack Sunday night/Monday morning or Thursday night/Friday morning I wouldn't be coming to work because it leaves me feeling so tired and sore and I need to recover. I got told to say this "" I am happy to have a discipline so long as you write down that I was off due to an asthma attack"".
Well I would not be happy to have a discipline and I don't see why I should accept it just because some people used these days as sickies when they were not sick. They said if they had to be disciplined then it should go right across the board. Unfair!
Last night I had to take ventolin because I was wheezing but I was concerned that if I was bad tonight and didn't go to work tomorrow I am going to be disciplined. Husband said not to worry about it but I am. In all my working life I have never recieved one.
Do I have to accept this or is there anything I can do about it? I am worried about this.
