Anyone have thoughts on how to start a conversation with your employer about accommodations for your lung disease? For me, I know these 24 hr shifts and the 5-7 days straight are simply too much early in my recovery.
Perhaps I should start by visiting my doc, and completing the intermittent fmla paperwork and seeing what work adjustments sound reasonable/feasible? Then take that to HR and let them be my advocate with administration?
Having an invisible disability is tough, I don’t have a broken leg and crutches, but feel like I do with the poorly controlled lungs. Not excited to go down this route, but I think it’s for the best. Can’t risk letting things get out of hand again, I’ve got 3 little guys who are counting on me.
