This one is for my adult daughter who is having great difficulty hanging onto a desk job that she feels is killing her. Most of y'all probably are not familiar with my postings on this board as I rarely come to the boards these days, mostly posted probably 7,8 years ago. In more recent years my few posts were on my adult daughter's behalf as she is afflicted with .......poor health. I can't say the words for CFS or FM, as they are too vague and also leave one open to dismissal by many. But, that is the only condition I can think of that describes her condition which has hampered her life since middle school. She is now 27 and trying to survive a painful (but well-paying) desk job. I am so proud that she was able to get through college and find first jobs all with very little help from me (single parent on SSDI). But she has soldiered on through incredible health issues and feels right now so close to the end of her rope. A very brief bio (of her current life): she suffers almost daily from migraines, has had chronic sinus infections solidly for 4 months (finally had surgery but still feels terrible), has high blood pressure, high triglycerides (eats healthfully and is mostly vegetarian), and complains of terrible swelling in her legs. She has been diagnosed with a kind of hearing loss that the doctor says is rare and mostly found in people with autoimmune conditions. I personally think she may have lupus (as my mother did), but she says blood work comes back negative for everything. She says that everything is exacerbated by the conditions of her work which require her to sit all day at a computer. She works in close proximity to her boss, so she does not feel comfortable taking the short walking breaks that she thinks would help a little. She HAS talked to her works human resources dept. hoping they will understand her frequent doctor appointments and occasional absences, but there doesn't seem much sympathy or suggestion there. My question on her behalf is: Is there any possibility she could quit and be able to get unemployment benefits? I worry that because she has no diagnosis, and doctor's show that there is "nothing wrong", that it will be a no-go. She does NOT want to file for disability, but she thinks that if she could get a less physically constricting job, her condition would not be so bad. Since she barely makes it through a day now, she does not have the ability to do a job search while employed.
