Hi was wondering im anyone else has been through this. I have taken some days of work and was wondering if my condition got worse and I felt as tired as I do some times and this continues, what can I do about finishing work, do they have to support me or is it just the goverment as I dont want that. Any advice or experiences would be great.

Thanks all

Dear Kev,
Are you in the UK like me?
There are many factors here that might be worth exploring. For example is it a big company you work for? How long have you been there? Do they have an Occupational Health Advisor-they can be really useful. Is there any way you feel your job could reasonably be adapted so that you can continue if that is what you would like.
Are you a member of a Union?
Sory to ask so many questions when you are feeling tired, but it does help if we can clarify what you could reasonably ask for. Often employers are willing to adapt, they just don't know how.

Do you think this is just a bad flare or is your disease poorly controlled most of the time?
I am sure others here will be along to help you out. I did reach the stage where I had to give up and go on Disability. To be quite honest, by that time I was grateful!
