I was diagnosed on September 17. At the time I was on FMLA since august 6. Following my diagnosis I extended leave until October 17. I feel very uneasy about my return to the workforce. I know I have all the tools I need for success. I'm probably better equipped now than ever because I now am being treated for BP. So I guess what I'm saying is that I'm afraid of people. My co-workers and regular customers, I can't deal with the questions. With help from my therapist we discussed a generic answer to tell people who are concerned, but don't need to know details. I'm interested to hear others experiences about work, etc.
