Addressing problems at work when you live with Lupus - or any chronic illness
Posted May 25 2009 10:17pm
Did you know that May 10 was World Lupus Day? May is Lupus Awareness Month — and there is also multiple sclerosis month, breast cancer month, etc.?
Anyone else think that there’s something odd with the fact that we have to dedicate a day or month to create attention to DISEASE that so many live with?
I don’t live with Lupus but I do live with other Autoimmune Diseases. I firmly believe that there are more similarities than differences among those of us living with any chronic illness/syndrome. How about Chronic Illness Year?
O.k. I’ll climb off my “soap box” . In support of the effort to raise awareness for Lupus, I wrote a post for MyLifeWorksToday.com - gotta’ love that blog title:) . My friend, Maria Pfiefer, is doing a tremendous job working to support folks with Lupus.
Check out my blog post because Maria asked me to respond to this question: What do you do if you’re afraid that you’re going to be fired because of illness . Should you bring it up and talk about it? I suggest it’s not chronic illness that makes work difficult. It’s what happens because of chronic illness. 5 steps to help you figure out what to do.
