    The other day at work, my boss told me he could tell that a flare was hitting me...my disposition, my face looks wiped out, I get pale. He said he can also tell when I got enough sleep because I look refreshed.

    I thought that was strange because my husband cant even tell when I'm not feeling good. Has anyone else had other people tell you "they can tell?"

    jpach007:
    My AA sponsor is beginning to tell the difference and is very supportive. She has cancer and has rough days also and I can now tell when that is. Maybe we sick ones can tell better than anyone else because: we know.

    Most people don't sem to notice when I feel different. One person that I see every couple of weeks seems to notice when I'm tired or feeling more alert or just when I feel down.

    My fiance (live in) & manager at work can always tell when I'm not feeling well. I forgot to re-stock my afternoon medications before work today, and when I told my manager (also a good friend) I was going home to get them she said "Yes, go"!! She would not usually support me going home for lunch, cause I spend most of my time driving. She has seen what happens when I don't have my meds.....not pretty.

    I would actually consider it a good thing that your boss can tell when you're not at your best. He may be more understanding because he knows you are truely sick - not just in your head. I don't know what your work situation is though, so I may be wrong.

    Take care,

    He just takes one look at me when I come home from work, for example, and says "go lie down; I know you don't feel good".

    He says he can see it in my eyes.

    when I was working, my co-worker would say to me, you are having a bad day today aren't you and she was always right. She said she could always tell by how quiet I would be after a night of not sleeping and by the way I moved so cautiously. Funny, my husband doesn't seem to know or if he does, he doesn't say.

    or I should say.. ONE of my bosses can tell.. he will tell me he can see it in my eyes.. I'll try and tell him I'm ok because I don't want this to cause me to lose respect or his confidence in my job abilities.. he knows though.. more than my guy.. more than my kids..
