Addressing problems at work when you live with Lupus - or any chronic illness

Posted May 25 2009 10:17pm

grow 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 - 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.
