Hi Jenny . . . welcome to the forum!
I'm so sorry you are having to deal with this disease PLUS an insensitive employer. If you check out the topics, there is a recent one titled FMLA. Peak in there and see if that might give you some help. It sounds easy to apply for and then your employer will see where he stands.
Its hard to say how long you'll deal with this difficult times. The fact that your doc has you taking 3 months off is pretty strong, but I would try to hang on to the job as long as possible to see how you feel later. . . or until you can find another job that would be less demanding. That insurance is really important now. It would be best if you could have another job lined up so that insurance goes right from one to the other. I have heard that it somehow avoids the "pre-existing condition" clause. Hopefully one of the others will know more about
I just wanted to welcome you to the forum and send you hot cup of tea!!
