- If your work is, or will likely be, affected by your illness, educate you=
r boss about
your condition. Do this soon. You may need their support later when more pr=
oblems
may arise, and it will be easier to educate them while you are still relati=
vely productive
and "credible".

- Understand that you might have to make some severe changes: a change of j=
ob, or
perhaps an involuntary loss of your job and a shift to disability benefits.

- Beware of the trap of losing important disability benefits if you switch =
to part time
work. Many CFS patients whose health was spiraling downwards had switched t=
o
part-time work to preserve their place with their employer. Later, when the=
ir health
deteriorated even more and they needed to seek disability benefits, they fo=
und out too
late that those benefits for a part-time employee did not include a livable=
 income,
whereas if they had gone straight from full-time to disability, the disabil=
ity payments
were much more livable. Be careful.
