OK, here's the thing...we've gone through a BUNCH of layoffs. And although the future looks bright again for our company, it's still a worry they may do more layoffs. I've spoken with my father (who's a lawyer) who told me under no circumstances should I tell my boss I have Fibro. Even though they shouldn't hold it against me, they can look for other reasons to get rid of me. The problem is my CFS has gotten so bad I've had to leave work early a couple of days this week. I have plenty of sick time, but I know my manager is concerned because I'm so tired. So much so I'm so I can't think clearly. I feel like I'm damned if I do and damned if I don't. My pain is bad, mind you, but my manager knows I have arthritis in my neck and back, so he expects pain from me. Plus, the ultram helps right now if the pain gets too bad. But the spaciness and exhaustion I know will catch up with me. I can't be in my job and space out all the time. Please tell me how your experience has been if you've told your boss. And let me know your thoughts on whether I should fess up?
