H tali. I actually made a similar post a month or two ago. It's a really hard decision to make. Some of your options depend on the demands of your job and how much flexibility you have, as well as your financial situation. I struggled for the last year or so with what to do. I am fortunate to only work 3 days a week as it is, but the afternoons started getting really hard for me. One one hand, I think my job is good for me when I can physically tollerate it becaue it keeps me around other people and I am not focusing on my illness all the time. On the other hand, when I am in a flare, it is absolute torture to be at work.
I finally realized that I didn't want to completely quit work, so I approached my boss about cutting my hours and working shorter days. My boss was accomidating because she doesn't want to lose me. I feel really good about this decision right now. I know the day might come when I have to completely quit, but this is a good compromise for me for now.
You can use FMLA to reduce your work hours if your boss isn't cooperative. The other thing you might want to look at is how you have felt being off this past month. If it really helped you and you didn't feel depressed and isolated and feel like you have some positive things that might occupy your time, quitting might be a good option for you. If you decide to go back, you might request easing back into it, by asking to start back at part time. I guess no one can really tell you what is right since each person's situation is unique. This is just what has worked for me. I'm not sure if this helped at all. Let us know what you are thinking and what you decide. When do you go back to work?
