Chronic Illness Tip: Make Job modifications

If you want to keep working full or part time, you have to stay physically and mentally able to continue to manage your job responsibilities.  To avoid stress and anxiety, you need to allow yourself more time during the day to get your responsibilities done.  Speak with your employer about a flexible schedule that would allow you to come in later or leave later. Or you could ask if you could work from home two or more mornings a week so that you can get more rest.  Another way you can help yourself is to take a nap during your lunch hour to minimize fatigue and give you more energy.  Whatever plans you make to modify your job situation, it is better not to put this off. To accommodate chronic illness in your work life, you need to work to budget time, create and follow to-do lists, and limit outside and personal commitments on workdays.
