Original uncertainty examples How can we get employers to be more sympathetic- I had days where I couldn't physically get out of bed and resulted in time taken off from work which could result in me being unemployed   ~  I want all Medical professionals to know more, have more understanding and to not say it's in our heads. I'd like them to provide emotional support from them and financial support from the government if we are unable to work from on going pain and exhaustion   ~  There is still no compassion in the workplace re flexible working as it isn't a 'visible' disability?
