This has probably been posted here before, but I ran across it today on my facebook feed. Those of us facing cancer and its treatments, and are still working, have legal protections that can help us deal with it in our workplace./www.eeoc.gov/laws/types/cancer.cfm
My company has been accommodating; my boss has been cool about
my (nearly) daily naps at lunchtime. The fatigue from hormone therapy has been relentless, and a half-hour nap is very rejuvenating. Fortunately, I have a private office with a door, so I can pull out a folding recliner my wife got me and turn out the lights. I take a somewhat longer lunch than most as a result, but work a longer day to cover it. This is a "reasonable accommodation" under the guidelines. (Of course, most days I'm the last one to leave anyway, but that's my own lunacy).
Anyway, thought this might be helpful if some here haven't seen this.
