Hello Friends, I need some advice; I just started working 5 months ago; after not being able to work for over 5 years. (I work about 20 hours per week-sometimes a bit more, sometimes less) At first I really liked the job, and it was not too stressful, and the hours were very flexible! BUT, in the last month, they fired someone, and I am stuck doing their job. So now, I am doing the job of 2 people(still working part-time though)! It is sooo stressful, and am finding my health is rapidly declining. The people I work with seem nice enough. I had to take off I few days, I have been in bed for the past 4 days (I have CFS/FMS). They do not know that I have a chronic illness. They have asked me to work full-time, but I told them I could not due to alot of problems and family problems that I have. Question: Should I tell them that I have a chronic illness, and if I do, what should I say I have...???? They think I am such a quick, wonderful worker, and probably would not detect that I am sick (The old; "BUT you don't look sick' thing) I am starting to get depressed, thinking I may have to quit, and not be able to work again, because of my poor health..UGH!! I am feeling so dizzy and ill, I just don't know if I am going to make it Any advice would be greatly appreciated... 'Hugs to all ' Dove..
