I am a teacher, so it can be super challenging. I actually started my symptoms in my 2nd year teaching, midway through the year at a new school.
My administrator rocks and when I was going through a bad flare, she told me me she didn't even want me thinking about
my job security, just to focus on getting healthy, which was awesome.
The hardest part of my job is the fact that I am tied to such a strict schedule... I would miss so many less days if I could just come in at 9 and stay later since my symptoms are always worse in the mornings. The kids come at 7:40 though!
Sometimes if I am really flaring I set my alarm super early and get up, take my time getting ready, and then lie down with my heating pack for a bit. Usually if I can make it in the car and actually get to work I can make it through the day!
