I work for the USPS as a carrier. I have been recently diagnosed with Fibro by my primary doctor. I have not missed any days due to the paiin/complications so far except for doct appointments. I am in the process of applying for FMLA to proctect my job in case there comes a time that I am unable to work a few days due to a flare up. I received the packet from HR for FMLA and it has some papers for the doctor to fill out. I took them almost 2 weeks ago and they are still not filled out! The nurse there does not believe in Fibromyalgia (of course she wouldn't admit this, but it is quite obvious). So I called and explained to the receptionist that the doctor needs to fill out these papers. I was called back to see if I could come in next week to meet with the doctor in filling out the papers? So I have an appointment. What should I expect? What should I tell him? He knows what my symptoms have been and what medication I am currently taking. I don't understand why I have to help him fill out the papers. I don't plan on taking 12 weeks off, but I just want to be protected if I have to take a few days off within the next year due to me feeling like S*** some day! I have a very physical job that takes a toll on me. Has anyone else went throught applying for FMLA? Any suggestions? Thank you.
