Question: “I have been with my company for 14 years. Two years ago I fell down a flight of stairs and injured my back. I walk with a cane and experience chronic pain. I've missed 35 days of work this year. My absences are covered bybut have caused my relationship with my boss to deteriorate. She says I am “unreliable” and she “never knows” when I’ll be in. This hurts my feelings, stresses and depresses me. I love my job, but I feel like such a pariah. When I asked for accommodations like a flexible start time, her response was: "What are you going to do for us in return?" Nothing was done. I am our household’s main bread-winner so resigning is not an option. My boss and I used to be good friends. How do I get her to understand I do not take time off just to make her miserable?” – Patti
