Thank you very much, Oluwa. This is very helpful, I will talk to my doc and see what he thinks, I am sure, I am not the only patient with this problem. If I can't get a modification, I am going to have to quit my job, but I don't want to do that. I just wish this company cared a little more about their employees well being.
Go, O, Go, O! I was gonna add my 2 cents but I think Oluwa covered everything
I was terminated from my job. They nit-picked for an excuse because I was only able to work 4 hrs/day (barely). They wanted me to go back full time. I talked to unemployment and they said I was approved. But after thinking about it, I applied for Soc. Sec Dis. Of course, I didn't have a dx yet. I was approved after 2 yrs for chronic pain. That is also a route you can take if you have docs to support you.
That might be the best route for me, because it is getting harder and harder for me to work.

I think your doctor could help a lot, but some employers can nit pick as Danice mentioned...so sorry that happened to you, Danice. I know that before my father in law retired, he was pushed into it faster than he was planning to. A common thing the employer did there with anyone getting near retirement...find a way to make someone quit or get fired and replace them with younger and/or healthier employees.
It's against the law but there are a lot of ugly minded people out there in positions they don't deserve, finding ways around the law if they can.
I hope your doctor will be helpful, and if not, I would try another doctor. I would think the documentation as Oluwa said (wow Oluwa you're soooo helpful!) would be important. I hope and pray they treat you well at work and are understanding. ((((Hugs)))) Keep us posted okay?
