Disclosure of a Dsability
As many of you know, I have been fiercely seeking a job, no easy task in this economy, add cancer and rheumatoid arthritis, a two year gap in the resume, and well................I was surprised and am excited to say that I have found a part-time job. Yay.
I do not plan to ever name my employer, for obvious reasons. I love the company and hope everything works great. I get to work from home, which is needed. Our training is full time and on the first day of training I was sent to the ER from the office because I got dehydrated, sicker than ever. Not a good way to start off a new job.
I'm having some challenges keeping up with the training, and hope some requests made for easy accommodations work.
I hope that the company uses me to better their ability to hire others with disabilities, and let me be a positive resource.
I'm really tired, just wanted to share the good news. I pray I am able to keep it.
