Hi. I was wondering if anyone else had any issues with work and their condition with Lupus. I work in an office and when winter comes the heating is on and I struggle with the heat. Luckily I have a fan to cool me down but am mindful of others when they say they are cold, but it's not reciprocated when they have the radiator full blast and heaters on and I'm almost at fainting point. My manager had a chat with me yesterday and I mentioned this to her and she asked if I thought this was the right kind of working environment for me, especially as I am moe susceptible to picking up things with people coming into the reception area. She said that there may be options through the organisation for me to perhaps work in an office on my own so I canhave the fan on/off when I like and be able to wear my tinted glasses without ridicule, because of the lighting. She said that it's not that she's trying to get rid of me, but thought this may be something I may think about. I love the job I do, and they know this and work so hard and have never complained about the issues I have. Now I'm worried that my condition is an issue at work and if they can use this to get me to move. I have Lupus SLE, and I gave my office manager a book about my condition, but feel it's not taken into account.
