Welcome to our family! There are many of us here who have had to give up our jobs due to our Lupus. It is not uncommon for employers to hide discrimination behind the line that they are either scaling down, or they are in a budget crisis. And, sometimes, they are actually blatant about their discrimination claiming that your work is substandard!
However, you are absolutely correct. Our health must come first and we must do all that is possible to avoid undue stress. I hope that your bid for disability is successful.
This site is filled with people who are informative, caring, supportive and very understanding. I am glad that you are here and I hope that we can provide you with some of what you need!
Peace and Blessings
