How do you keep a job with having frequent migraines
Good morning, I am new to the community. I have been suffering from migraines since I was 11. They are mainly hormone related but can have many other triggers on top of that, so I usually have at least 1 or 2 migraines a month. I was wondering how people in th US manage to keep a job with having frequent migraines. A few years ago I moved to the US from Belgium, where the system is different and you can’t just get fired or penalized as easily for missing days because of medical reasons. I have lost 2 jobs due to my migraines and the strains and stress of losing my job / penalties inflicted (dropping pay tiers for missing too many days) and I am wondering how people manage. I know some companies offer FMLA but that is usually only after a year of service. Some people have suggested I try getting on disability, but I feel that I am able to work most of the time, I am just not able to keep a job… Is anyone else in the same situation? Or does anyone have any suggestions for jobs or companies that would be fitting for migraine patients? Thank you!
