Data Entry Job – SCAM!
We are aware that someone out there is using our CEO’s name and our company name to “recruit” people for a data entry job. It is a fake. Please do not give them any of your personal information. We are not now, nor have we ever, had data entry positions available.
How is your boss dealing with your recovery?
I started having issues around January 2009 - numbness and tingling down my left arm, pain, etc - you all know that drill. 2 cortisone shots, no relief.
I had ACDF surgery in early April 2009 and went back to work in June.
My concern is that my employer isn't realizing that I am still broken.... primarily because I have attempted to downplay my spinal stenosis, nerve damage, bone spurs and herniated disk.
I think that playing it so tough has been a negative thing for me.
When I am "locked up", or sore, or cranky because I am sore, or if I call in sick because I am just in too much pain - I just don't think that they GET that I am still recovering....
I'd welcome any thoughts and advice - I am on FMLA, so they are "technically" aware that I have a medical condition that may impair my ability to function at 100% one hundred percent of the time, but I don't think that day-to-day they GET me....
