Hi Ruthie; Welcome to our family. I noticed that you mentioned that your university was being really good about letting you take time off. Do you work for the university or are you a student? If you are a student, it might be helpful for you to contact your "Disabled Student's Union". They will offer note takers for those days that you cannot attend classes, they will offer help with professors, tests, parking etc., so that you can continue your education without undue stress and with as much assistance as possible (as Oluwa mentioned, stress is one of our wost enemies).
If you are an employee, ask them about their services for disabled employees. Often, since they offer services for students, they also offer services for employees. Do not let the name "Disabled" scare you away or make you start thinking of yourself differently. Getting help from them does not categorize you.
If your employer needs help in understanding how they can assist you, contact "Americans With Disablilities Act" - www.ada.gov. There is a wealth of information on their website, for employees and employers, that offers advice on how to accommodate employees with any kind of limitations.
I am glad that you found us, everyone here is very helpful, kind and supportive. Again.....welcome!
Peace and Blessings
Look For The Good and Praise It!
