Hi All... & Administrators
I'm an Employment Lawyer and my partner, Jan, has suffered with Fibro for the 8 years I've known her and from her younger years. I've had to work really hard to understand it and support her in everyday life let alone understanding how this affects her working life. So I'm concerned...
The concern is, because Fibro appears to be a "hidden" illness with very definite external consequences, how people are coping with the pressure of work and furthermore how employers are responding to the illness.
I'm interested in understanding this illness from an employees point of view but in particular how they are coping with AND being treated at work. Work should not or ought not to stop because of it and perhaps employers need to be alive to the thoroughly debilitating nature of this condition.
To that end I'm wondering whether you would benefit from a Fibro at work "group"? Is that what you call it? Where people can write and share their experience purely from a "working" view point.
Perhaps you would like to comment.
