I just participated in a meeting by telephone. I work from home now because of scent triggers. At the beginning of the meeting, someone made a comment about the blue lights where I used to sit being there because ‘some people’ have migraines. Someone else – I don’t know who – in the meeting said, “Take a Tylenol, that will take care of it. It’s not a big deal.”
I am very disappointed – but not surprised – that one of my team members would make a comment that makes light of it. I expected more from people who are employed in healthcare. That aside, ignorance is not an excuse for lack of compassion. It is because of lack of empathy/consideration/compassion that I am working from home.
Should I say something to my supervisor about this? What would you say?
