I just found this site. I need some help!!! I need some input...I work at a local radio station as a secretary. My workplace wants me to work 8-5 most days, but during hurricane season, they would want me to work from 11p-7a during hurricanes. This would not be permanent, but I would be working 8-5 on some days have a day off and work the 11p-7a shift. I know what a slight change in schedule does to my fibro, so I have asked to either work the 7a-3p shift or the 3p to 11p shift. No luck so far. My doctor, whom I will no longer see will not write a note to help. He says I "should ajust just like everyone else does." Problem is, I am NOT like everyone else. My pain would intensify, my fatigue would increase. I am at a loss. I am going to try to talk to my family doctor to see if she would help, but I am not sure she will. I am not trying to get out of work....I am trying to survive. I feel like I am being a whiner....I feel like I am being dismissed by co-worker and my doctor. I have been having flares ever since the weather got hot and humid. I can't do it all. Does anyone have any advice? Thank you.
