FMLA covers your time when you cannot work. I work for a telecon company and as long as I have a cert on file from FMLA. The company can't fire me as long as I stay within my certifcation. The FMLA tells you, your company how many hours/days that you will be able to take off. My last one told them that I can be off up to 3 days per week. The superviser hated it. He tried everything to fire me. It was so bad with him, that I had to go to the EEO. Guess who isn't with the phone campany anymore. If, your company has FMLA.....Please get the paperwork...Your life/health may depend on it.
Enjoy what you can today and leave the rest for another day.
