I haven't posted in a long time since I have been doing really well...until recently. I started getting really tired about two weeks ago and it has accelerated almost daily. I was put on a Meth pack last week which didn't seem to do anything. Then over this past weekend I got worse and couldn't hardly walk (I am using a cane a lot now). I went to Rheumie yesterday and she gave me a shot of steroids. She told me that I will need to take time off from work so I can get through this.
I talked to my HR person today about FMLA, she suggested that I work 3 days a week for a while and see if that helps. I am really fortunate because my work is really understanding, but I am really nervous about doing this because of the economy. Does anyone have any experience with the FMLA and what might be the repercussions if I do fill out the paperwork and have it on file at work?
