I'm desperate guys. Do you think I'd qualify for fmla? If anyone here is familiar with fmla, I greatly need your help. I have a hormone imbalance and my periods are way way, extremely messed up. I've been on my period currently for 9 weeks and 4 days. Prior to this episode I was on my period, well bleeding for over 7 months straight. It has been extremely stressful, draining, both physically, emotionally, and mentally. During the past yr at my job, I have missed a great amount of time and am currently on probation because of it. Do you think it would be worth me looking into fmla so I can take the time I need to recover? I am under medical care. My mangers have been not so understanding through all of this, and this is a really hard condition to explain and to get someone to understand. I need my job. But I also need my health. I'm just at such a loss. Today was a really bad day for me. I asked my supervisor if I could go home for the day because I was feeling really bad. She said I really don't need to be asking to go home every time I feel bad. This was just the 3rd time I've done that. It's not like I'm going home for any little reason, in my eyes this is a serious health concern and tmi, but the amt I was bleeding today was a lot and I've found the best thing to do to slow down thew bleeding is bed rest. I didn't end up going home because I was so emotional, I just didn't feel like dealing with her. Like I said, I desperately need my job, but I need my health to get better as well. I know I've complained about my job before, but dealing with this really does make it hard to work. I just don't know what to do.
