*UPDATE* I asked for the FMLA at work last Monday [View all]

Again, thank you DU fam for reading my posts and all your input, advice, thoughts, and kindness.

I was going to ask for it this past Tuesday, but I was so stressed out I decided to move it up to past Monday to get it over with. I was shaking so badly. It went well. My doctor wanted me out asap, but I didn't want to do that to the scheduler lady, who just lost a baby and is very nice. So, we chose June 8th. Which is great because I miss Staff Day, too.

My boss accepted it and was great. I was pleasantly surprised. We did the paperwork yesterday. I will bring my doctor his part to fill out Tuesday. It is supposed to be for a month, but I think it will be longer. My doctor said to say a month at this point, since he is very concerned about me. But he is going to do what is best for me in any case.

I have no idea what is being thought of me, vis a vis the director, etc. I kinda don't care. My co-workers don't know, minus the scheduler lady, and I told her about my disability so she knew, and I am fine with her knowing. The others don't , and it is none of their business. I will tell the guy I supervise. I asked my boss about the evaluations, etc, and she made it sound like it would be okay, so I am going with that. I feel like I can finally breathe a bit. There may be bumps in the road I don't know about, but I don't want to think of them. I just see a path out for a while. Taking a few days off and going to the mountains. It's been two years since I was on a vacation. I miss a lot of time at work due to stress.

Some asked me to keep them up to speed on what happened, so here I am. Feeling a bit hopeful!
