iheartcats Posted June 5, 2009 Report Share Posted June 5, 2009 Now that I've moved I have to look for new work (and no FMLA protection for a year - that *really scares me* but am trying not to focus on the negatives too much).My husband and I decided I could take a couple months to settle in (if all goes as planned) and then start looking.I'm on a new medicine regime that is helping me (still can't kick the weird fatigue, though, but other things have improved somewhat). I hope to see a POTS specialist in the next month or two to see what else I can do to improve my chances of feeling better/holding down a job.I know what I can't do - a standing job, manual/lifting work, etc. I know it has to be a 'desk job' with reasonable hours, no demanding overtime.I'm worried in this economy that will be hard to find, and I don't even know how to bring up how I really need somewhat stable hours. I don't want them to think I'm a lazy slacker, because that's not it at all. I just really need to balance my health with work.From what I understand, you have to make a good effort to work/take care of yourself before SSDI, etc. and I'm willing to do that. I just don't know where to begin finding a job to accommodate me! I have spent most of my career in marketing/advertising/writing. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
