Hi Barbara I was faced with a similar situation I would definitely wait until they make a decision; given that their doctor was able to see your diagnosis you'll probably get it. Meanwhile, I would call up the FMLA unit of your company to determine what's the hold up it's been 6 months already.
Fair warning FMLA is not disability leave and other words you will not be paid while on leave. But you save yourself from being fired for when you have to leave or call out. Even then companies can still fire you at their discretion because there's ways around it, but give them a call if you don't have a contact for them find out from management.View Thread
I was just wondering is there anybody that actively works with this condition. Not only do I have IBS but also hyperhidrosis from my rear area so it's extremely tough for me, but I manage I still go out from time to time and I worked a whole year with the condition.View Thread
