I'm dealing with yet another situation at work. Please be patient. This is a long post. For my time off, I decided to visit my family in North Florida. I couldn't find a decently priced plane ticket, so I opted to drive nearly nine hours. I felt fine, I just had to rest the entire day after the drive. Unfortunatly, I attempted to drive back to Southwest Florida on Sunday, but I was able. During my visit, the sleep disorder resurfaced and I became extremely fatigued. I was supposed to report back to work on Monday, but couldn't. I foresaw this problem and spent two days looking for a plane ticket. That stressed me out so much that I just opted to drive back home instead of dealing with the stress of finding a ticket, dealing with crowds at the airport, renting a car to get around when I did get home, etc. My supervisor never gave me a phone number where she could be reached if there was an emergency. I searched for hours on the internet to find her number, but I guess it's unlisted. I even tried to look for the phone number of a mutal friend so I could call the friend to get her phone number. That failed as well. So, finally, I e-mailed her (and her boss), and explained the sitution. Since I had access to the internet, and a lot of my job requires me to do research on the internet...I said I could telecommute and e-mail her my work. To ensure she received the e-mail, I called the office before my shift was to start. She refused to allow me to telecommute, and put me on sick leave. Furthermore, she stated that we would, "discuss my assignments when I got in on Thursday." I'm pretty astute, and I have a bad feeling about this. As a matter of fact, I've begun looking for other jobs. What really irritates me about this is that I liked the job. I didn't have the stress that came from working in television news, but this still allowed me to stay in the field of communications. My job isn't stressful, but SHE is making it stressful for me because of her unreasonableness. I've only been on this job for four months, but I considering resigning because of her. I hate this because I'm a fighter by nature who doesn't like to be bullied. I'm one of those people that if you push me, I'll push you back harder. I don't believe in breaking and running from anyone. I'm not taking advantage or trying to get out of working here. My supervisor demanded that I report for work even though I was coming into work with less than two hours sleep (I've done this for nearly two months). My fibro has NEVER affected my ability to get into work. Most days I was EARLY for work, beating her into the office. I am also the top producer in the office, doing more work than her. There were even days when HER boss told me that I could go home because I looked sick. I didn't. I stayed so that we could make deadlines. In fact, I've NEVER called out sick. If I was sent home, it was because my supervisor or her boss asked me to go home. I'm a good worker... in spite of the the illness. Now here's the rub of the situation. I was first given permission by my supervisor's boss to work from home two days out of the week. Somehow, my supervisor (who agreed to this first arrangement), got involved and changed the plan. She told me that I couldn't work from home two days out of the week, but I could work at home for one day because of "performance issues" (which is crap, by the way). This is illegal (according to ADA). My so-called "performance issues" were because I came from a different work culture than her (she worked in newspaper, I worked in radio and television). Had she asked questions, she would've found that out. Other issues were directly related to the fibro, which she knew about BEFORE I even went to interview for the job. Now that I'm through venting, I want to know what you guys think. Some of you have been in similar situations, and I would appreciate any insight you can offer (as much as you can considering). I don't want to leave my job, but I can't handle working for someone who is making my life a living hell.
