I am currently working in a town about 30 min. away and am working a 6 hr.per day job, working straight through. This is down from 9 hrs. which I will have to go back to soon. My Dr. put me on 6 hrs., as a compromise to total medical leave. I doubt my boss will go for the shortened day much longer. I haven't been there long enough to have any legal grounds to work less hrs(Only 6 mo), so I'll have no choice but to go back to a 9 hr. day. Plus another hr. driving time. It is a desk job, and not physically demanding, but very, very stressful. My boss is difficult, and says she would rather I be there for 6 hrs than not at all, then promptly adds more duties to my job. I do like the work. I have a possible opportunity for a different job that would be in the same town I live in, a little less stressful but more physically demanding. On my feet and moving around, but not a lot of heavy lifting etc. Which is worse on CFS mental stress or physical activity? CFS started a few months before my current job, but it is much worse since I started it.
