Not saying I am not in pain, BUT, I need to work for my mental & most of all bills & health insurance.
I have to do what I have to do. I am not a happy camper at work all the time, but lucky for me I have my own office where I can hibernate & not get moody with co workers...when I feel bad.
I do just hit the couch when I get home as well, BUT I am lucky because my husband travels & my 18yr old can fend for himself so NO ONE to cater too..
I do both stand or sit through out the day, it depends on how my legs feel at the time. Sometimes I find myself squatting infront of my dest on my heels to avoid screaming from the deep dull bone pain...I pop advil through out the day, does not help all that much, but it makes it tolerable.View Thread

Just know that FMLA, at least mine will not pay anything & I do not have short term disability.
I have used FMLA, but unpaid, or use up my vacation for medical reasons. We do not have sick leave either. I don't have a choice either in working, but my motto is "I am miserable at home, may as well get paid for it.".View Thread
That comment did not sound awful to me,but everyone reacts different. I say a lot of joking comments to my neighbor (currently bed ridden dying of cancer) to get a smile out of her. She knows I am kidding because I watch her every evening from 7pm-9pm (I work until 5pm) so her husband can get some rest, shower, eat dinner & get a small mental break. You won't believe the comments I give her, but she knows I love her & only trying to get her to smile...View Thread
