I think every state or employers disability benefits are different. I did use disablility with last flare, but only partial benefits. I also was afraid of milking the system or being viewed as a slacker. So even though I could barely make the 20 minute drive to work and barely had the energy to climb the stairs because I was severely anemic I continued to work. But couldnt get in to the office until around 10 and left at 3 every day. The rest of the hours I used disability benefits. I did that for about
3 months. Looking back I should have just gone out of work completely, maybe hospitilized and concentrated on getting well. It may have been a quicker recovery. I havent had remicade infusions so I dont know about
recovery time needed, but I think if I ever again feel I need to use sick time or disability I just will. In the end your health is the most important thing.
