I'm sorry to hear about that. You're in the US right? Some places have the FMLA (Family Medical Leave Act) or something like that. My friend's dad has chronic migraines and misses a lot of work, and as long as he doesn't go over the alloted days during the year they can't fire him. His job might be union too... I"m not sure.
Either way that really bites the big one. I think a lot of our problems come from people seeing CFS/CFIDS as being something that people say when they're too lazy to do things, which is totally not the case.
The name CFS doesn't sound as serious of an illness as it actually is... which doesn't help us out at all either.
I do wish you well though... hang in there.
