I'm sorry to hear that you are having trouble with work. I hope it gets better for you. My boss is also insensitive. She told me that i need to be at work if I don't have a Dr's note. Not having a Dr's note is complete, horrible other story. I told my boss that if I could not even walk to my bathroom in my own house that I as sure as h$%^ was not going to be at work. At this time, I am taking my own vacation time. I work for a very big company that is worldwide and I am in management. I have devoted my life to this company and I would think I should be treated better than this. I also think my boss would understand since she lost a leg to cancer. I guess she has already forgotten what it feels like to hurt.
