Working and Lupus

Posted on May 11, 2018

The unpredictability of lupus makes it difficult to do well at work. Success at work is more likely with a supportive boss, understanding clients, kind co-workers, and a flexible schedule. Learn from others about how they find success at work while managing lupus.

On MyLupusTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with lupus, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Working is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are some question-and-answer threads about working:

How do you deal with the guilt when you take a sick day?

Does anyone have recommendations or advice on what to do when your Lupus starts interfering with working?

How do other people with lupus handle working full time?

Here are some conversations about working:

A member shares what it's like after every shift at her job.

A member shares her guilt about putting work on her team.

A member is thinking about joining the workforce again and asks the community about their experiences.

Can you relate?
