This is my first year dealing with really really bad symptoms of FMS but I am still working. I am on FMLA and I am afraid to ask my HR office too many questions. I think the more I confide in them..the more vulnerable I am. Maybe its my fog and depression that is talking. Well, my confusion stems from the fact that my employer had me use all my sick time and then docked my annual time . Now I ran out of both and I will now be docked my pay for days I come in late or have drs appts. What then does FMLA do for me? I know it protects me from getting fired...but I thought it was also a way to have your time protected? Can you start to apply for any disability while I am working. i feel like I am in a catch 22 and my brain cant figure out what to do. Does anyone have advise?
