I work as a business analyst/software developer. It is super stressful, but I am lucky that I mostly sit the whole day.
I have no idea how I do it. Some days I can barely find the energy to get out of bed and get my clothes on. I live downtown in a city so getting to and from work is not always easy. Then when I get to work, some days my brain fog is so bad I can barely read.. I have to really really concentrate on what I am doing. By the time I get home all I can do is lay on the couch.
It seemed to be a little better during the summer.. but since starting to hit babesia with mepron it seems like I am back to square one all over again. Very very weak, brain fog, fatigue, etc.
My boss told me that I could get short term disability, but I fear that I will need it even more at some point so I feel like I just need to keep pushing. Her daughter has a rare autoimmune disease, so she gets chronic illness which is good.
The biggest downfall to my job when I am so sick is that I travel overseas a lot. In February I have to go to Italy for two weeks by myself to implement new software at one of our facilities. With each software rollout (every 3 months) I always think "eh I should be better by then..."
