Pipes added a topic in Celiac Disease - Coping WithAdvice PleaseHi all,
I've been real sick for several months going to doctor to doctor and being told it's depression causing my symptoms, fatigue, bloated, gas, fuzzy head, weight loss...Finally, I went to a gastro doc who believes it is celiac. Going for biopsy next week. My question has to do with work. For several months I was so sick I could barely function. Having no diagnosis I dragged myself to work. Now my managers are telling me that I am lazy and unproductive and maybe my feeling sick is in my head. I've worked in this company for twenty years and never had any complaints about my work, always compliments. Now these managers are threatening to get rid of me. Can't afford to lose my job. My question is...Is Celiac disease considered a disability? I really need to protect myself at work. Thank you so much for listening.
