  1. I tried to book a room at the Embassy Suites today and the conference rate is not available for Friday the 15th only Monday 11- Thursday 14th and then for single days either the 16th or 17th. I spent 45 mins + talking with an employee there and ultimately booked at the Comfort Inn for $110/night
  2. So, it doesn't sound like you have any suggestions except keep the oxygen with me? With your FMLA application you can request specific workplace changes (like if you had a sore neck diagnosis and wanted a standing desk or different chair) without having to also submit a ADA app although that is an option some people have to pursue. The protections you receive are provisions of the ADA. No one advertises this and very few HR departments ever tell you about it, but you can write out your accommodation requests with your FMLA app. I appreciate you are trying to be helpfu
  3. I'm completing FMLA paperwork for chronic cluster and looking for ideas for work accommodations. Others have recommended, "Ask for the moon, and see what gets approved." But besides for working from home and a work laptop to facilitate that, I don't really know what to ask for. I'm a social worker. I meet with clients (at their homes or in my office), do a 2 hour assessment, type it up, and refer them to a treatment agency. It's getting difficult to do. I'm canceling a lot of my meetings. I almost always have a cluster after every intake appt. Usually 1 intake appt a day and then
  4. Does anyone have information on how long after you eat something you can rule it out as a trigger? Are my breakfast foods potential triggers for my afternoon cluster attacks or should I just be looking at my most recent meals? My neurologist told me I'd just drive myself crazy trying to figure this out and to just avoid alcohol. Any info is appreciated!
  5. My chronic pain therapist recently suggested I get an emotional support animal (ESA) and frankly seemed let down that I wasn't into the suggestion. I have two dogs and a cat. One dog is scared of my oxygen and the sounds I make using it. If I'm honest, sometimes I'm so agitated during an attack I don't want them near me because I'm afraid I might hurt them. At times I've questioned if I could even care for them if my partner wasn't in the picture. I don't know what a service animal or ESA could do for someone with cluster. I feel the tingle in my head and I make a beeline to my oxy
