i like the way you think!
I wish I could, but normal Fed. benefits are awful. We don't have ANY disability insurance at all (no long term or short term). When I was in the hospital for 6 months my friends donated weeks and weeks of their own personal vacation time, but I still ended up with a negative 250 sick leave balance. I think I reach zero Nov. 2013. We can't afford for me not to work, so I'm suffering thru it.

You guys will love this one...
My MIL told me to keep busy and keep moving and I wouldn't notice the pain or need to take that Tylenol. Wish I'd thought of that before!
She was serious.

I wouldn't wish this on anybody and I'd LOVE to be the one strong enough to do everything... It makes me sad...

Tracey....I'm so sorry you have to do what you do despite feeling poorly. And I really hope that you have a better support system in place than your MiL.

It sounds like you have awesome friends to be donating their personal time whilst you were in hospital.

Tracey, there has to be some kind of help for you. I don't know how you can work in pain. When you say FEDS does that mean federal? I don't know how your job can justify your safety working like that. And there is no disability you can apply for. I have never heard that no one has disability of some sort. I am going to pray. There is an answer, and I am so concerned for you!

Thank you!!!!

Today was much better. I'm lucky to have wonderful coworkers who do everything for me that might hurt me.

We are federal. People always assume we get the same sweet deal elected officials get, but ours is nothing close. We don't even have dental.

But, I am thankful to have a job & very sweet people to work with. I actually kind of love it there. The days when I hurt are just hard... But, YAY , today was a good one!!!

I am glad you like your job. Just remember you come first. Can't replace you! Be careful. I hope you heal quickly.
