How true!! My boss is starting to get suspicious of my absences, and we haven't even gotten to the treatment part yet.

I'm lucky enough to work for a person and with a team of people who are well aware of my situation and fully supportive. I wish that support extended past the walls of the building but I'm just so grateful for the support I do have.
